NCI organises the members along projects. The project codes have the form a12, aa1 or a name. These different forms design projects with different purposes:
Project code
Description
a12
These are compute projects. They receive compute time allocations and can be used to run simulations, analyses or any code in batch mode.
aa1
These are data projects. NCI is more than a supercomputer providing High Performance Computing capabilities. It also hosts a large amount of datasets. There are all kinds of datasets at NCI: replica of international datasets (both public and under licence), published datasets from Australian institutions with either public or restricted access. The aim is to avoid duplications of datasets on the system, please do not download data to your own space before checking for central resources.
name
These are software projects. They enable to manage access to resources for people using a specific software only. E.g. access and cable groups.
