The service here described, "shared resources", is the more flexible modality: a completely pay-per-use, run-at-your-convenience access. There is no reserved part of the machine, but you score a higher priority with respect to non-industrial users, allowing always a fast start of your runs.
It is ideal for infrequent usage or peak management.
Service is contracted directly from CINECA. The service includes unlimited user accounts and up to 1 TB of storage (+1 TB scratch). Additional storage may be provided for a fee. Users can use any free software application or deploy its own licenses, whenever allowed by the corresponding license.
