To get an account, you must use Grid'5000 for its intended purposes. The following extract of our charter details these purpuses :

The Grid'5000 platform is intended to support research in all areas of computer science related to 
large scale distributed processing and networking. You should use Grid'5000 in the 
perspective of large scale experiments (at least 3 sites and 1000 CPUs).

You may generate useful results for other communities, as long as the community of
computer science researchers learns something from your experiments. 

For all academics in France whose work is compatible with the charter, accounts can be requested using the dedicated form after having read and accepted Grid'5000's charter. Please contact the person responsible for the site nearest to you before submitting a request, as he will have to accept your request and he will receive account management and accounting mails related to your usage of Grid'5000.

In doubt, you can contact the board of directors at

See the news page for information about events where/when to meet the Grid'5000 community.

Current policy for non-French and/or non-academic applications:

Users from foreign countries may get an access to Grid'5000 resources only through formal collaboration, such as an European project, with a French team already involved in the project. Feel free to contact one of the executive committee members.

Private compagnies interested in providing ou using resources may contact one of the Grid'5000 executive committee members.
