ALICE (Academic Leiden Interdisciplinary Cluster Environment) is the high-performence computing (HPC) computing facility of the partnership between Leiden University and Leiden University Medical Center. It is available to any researcher from both partners. Leiden University and LUMC aim to help deliver cutting edge research using innovative technology within the broad area of data-centric HPC. Both partners are responsible for the hosting, system support, scientific support and service delivery of several large super-computing and research data storage resources for the Leiden research community.

This wiki is the main source of documentation about the ALICE cluster. 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.
