High Demand for Supercomputer Resources

Following the latest call for projects in February, the NIC Peer Review Board once again had the difficult job of assigning supercomputing resources for the next computing time period. About 50 groups from all over Germany requested more than four times as much computing time than was available for NIC projects on JUGENE, Jülich's petaflop supercomputer. The demand was even higher for JUROPA, Jülich's general purpose supercomputer; more than 70 groups applied for about seven times the available resources. At the beginning of May, all applicants received information about the allocation of computer time.
