Apply to use Nimbus

To begin using Nimbus, submit an application at Pawsey's application portal.  Detailed how-to is given here

IMPORTANT: All projects now have a six-month validity period, after which an application must be submitted for an extension if continued Nimbus use if required (an automated email will be sent with a link to a pre-filled form).

All Nimbus projects also get 1TB of Acacia object storage automatically (can request up to 10TB) via the application portal page.
