Maximum Allocation Sizes

The maximum sizes of NeSI high-performance computing allocations and their maximum durations are given in the table. Actual HPC allocations will be made based on the project's usage history, requirements expressed at the time of application, and forecast resource availability, and will often be smaller than these limits.

Table 2: Maximum Core-h, Node-h (one Node-h is equivalent to 40 Core-hs) and GPU-h allocations by Allocation Class on Mahuika and Maui. Institutions can specify any upper limit they decide, so long as the sum of their allocations falls within their entitlement cap.
