In the startup phase of ALICE, accounts are created locally with respect to the cluster. The account names are similar to the ULCN or LUMC accounts, but have an independent password and home directory repository.

Access policy

The access policy for ALICE is very similar but more restrictive than the Leiden University Account Policy.

Facilities are available to all researchers from both Leiden University and LUMC. Please review the policies for the system, this will assist in finding the right level of service for your project and choosing job parameters correctly. Overall we want to provide the best quality of service to all users so please consider how we may improve the service you receive and give us your feedback.

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

Here you can find information on how to request an account: Getting an account
