Available Core Hours for 2021 Allocations (Pawsey Supercomputing Centre)

Available SUs for 2021 allocations at Pawsey Supercomputing Centre will be the same as in 2020:

  • NCMAS: 100,000,000 core hours on Magnus
  • Energy and Resources: 55,500,000 core hours on Magnus
  • Pawsey Partners: 110,000,000 core hours on Magnus

Important changes related to the Pawsey Capital Refresh (PCR) project:

  • In 2021 allocation round Pawsey Centre supercomputing resources will be significantly refreshed as part of the PCR project. For details and current schedule please refer to:
  • Pawsey staff will be working closely with all researchers to migrate their workflows to new infrastructure. Magnus system is planned to be decommissioned in 2021 after we confirm that all projects have been successfully migrated to Phase1 Pawsey Supercomputing System (PSS).
  • The applicants of all Pawsey allocation schemes will be expected to transition to the new system partway through the allocation with significant help and support from Pawsey staff.
  • Projects which successfully migrate to PSS will receive a 1-1 equivalent of their remaining core hours allocation on the Phase1 PSS. This will be done based on yearly allocation scaled to remaining days and not on usage up to date.

After an issue with the email alerting researchers that applications were open the dates have been adjusted as follows:
