Access Request

RNCA's computing resources are intended for public or private research, technology and innovation/industry communities in any scientific area.

The access request is intended to respond to computational projects that do not fit in the national calls for proposals. The associated costs are calculated after analysis of the request.

If you are interested in RNCA's services, submit your request through the appropriate form. Indicate, if known, the following information in the message field:

  • Scope of application of computer resources
  • Operating Center and Desired Computing Model
  • Amount of computing resources: no. of core.hours, no. GPU.hours, amount of storage per month, etc.
  • Project start date and duration
  • Operating System, Software Tools and Application Software

Indicative Costs

The three computational projects presented intend to characterize, in a generic way, the costs associated with the use of RNCA resources. They do not reflect any specific computational project and the values presented are only indicative and may change*. Each access request is analyzed according to the needs and requirements of the computational project and its cost is calculated based on that same information. Submit your access request using the appropriate form.
