GCS large-scale projects
are characterised by projects that require a large amount of computing time over
longer periods of time.
In detail, projects are classified as large-scale
if they require at least 2% of the systems' annual production
in terms of estimated availability.
This requirement can be translated into different values.
For the supercomputers Hawk and SuperMUC-NG we give the requirement in terms of core-hours.
Thus, the projects' minimal requirements should be the following for these two systems:
- >= 100 Mcore-h on Hawk or
- >= 45 Mcore-h on SuperMUC-NG
JUWELS consists of two different modules with different hardware architectures.
Thus, the minimal computing time requirements for GCS-LS projects cannot be coherently specified by use of core-hours,
but EFLOP, based on the system's peak performance, is
The projects' minimal requirements summed over all requested modules should be:
- >= 45000 EFLOP per year on JUWELS
Please refer to the JUWELS fact sheet
for further information.
Projects which do not fall into the category large scale
are called GCS regular projects
