From ALICE Documentation

This wiki is the main documentation source for information about the Academic Leiden Interdisciplinary Cluster Environment (ALICE) cluster. ALICE is the research computing facility of the partnership Leiden University and Leiden University Medical Center. It is available to any researcher from both partners. In this wiki, we will introduce the ALICE cluster in detail. We assume you know your way around in a terminal session and that you will responsibly use the cluster and respect the available resources. Remember that a cluster runs many different processes submitted by many different users. If you are not sure what you are doing, ask your administrator before submitting very intensive jobs.
