Grid5000 : Account OpenAccess

Jump to: navigation, search

Grid'5000 is a scientific instrument designed to support experiment-driven research in all areas of computer science related to parallel, large-scale or distributed computing and networking, including HPC, Cloud and Big Data.

Grid'5000 is funded by institutions such as Inria, CNRS, and many universities. Access to Grid'5000 is available to members of contributing institutions, and can be extended to their active collaborators and to selected outstanding research projects.

An 'Open Access' program enables researchers to get a Grid'5000 account valid for two months. At the end of this period, the user must submit a report explaining its use of Grid'5000 to, and (possibly) apply for renewal.

Open Access accounts currently provide unrestricted access to Grid'5000 (this might be changed in the future). However:

  • Usage must follow the Grid'5000 Usage Policy
  • We ask Open Access users not to use OAR's "Advance reservations" for jobs more than 24 hours in the future.
