Find here a hardware description of the ALICE cluster.

Gaining access

Access to the cluster and file transfer are traditionally done via SSH and SFTP.

Access Policy

Account Access Policy

Access needs to be granted actively (by creation of an account on the cluster by the ALICE Cluster Workgroup. Use of resources is limited by the scheduler. Depending on availability of queues ('partitions') granted to a user, priority to the system's resources is regulated on the basis of Faculty/institute/PI levels.


Cluster Management Software and Scheduler

ALICE uses Bright Cluster Manager software for overall cluster management, and Slurm as job scheduler.
