These FAQs focus on questions concerning the overall Analysis Platforms service. For questions regarding particular issues at a certain access provider, please, write to the corresponding contact support of the service provider:





  • Is it possible to perform test activities before the application?

Ye, we help you to get familiar with the High Performance Computing environment, we can provide some preliminary CPU hours at your preferred host, just contact us, see the list of the access providers above. For test activities using Jupyter notebooks, please apply to the ENES Climate Analytic Service (ECAS).

  • Is it possible to ask for data that are not already at the access provider's pool?

Yes, the access providers allocated disk space for this purpose. If you do not find all the data you need, please, contact the provider(s) you are interested on for a data replication request. This is usually a lightweight process and your data will be available at the host in few days.

  • Is it possible to use virtual machines?

Yes, the four access providers offer virtual machines capabilities. Please, contact the access provider(s) you are interested on for specifications.

  • Is it possible to access more than one provider in the same call?

 Yes, just be sure you justify it in your proposal. If one provider hosts the majority of the data you would like to use but you miss some other data, you might not need to apply for a second provider since it might be more convenient to contact the first provider for a replication request.

  • Is it possible to install new software?

Yes, but the software you need is probably already installed. Thee list of already available software at the DKRZ supercomputer, Mistral, is here. For UKRI STFC JASMIN-CEDA, the list of available software is here. For more information, please contact the specific service provider.
