Resources for teaching

If you would like to have HPC resources for your course, kindly follow the instructions provided at the page Access for Courses.

Workflow in JARDS

There are several steps necessary to apply for HPC resources. The application workflow is identical for each project type.

  • Project type - Select the project type according to your resource requirements
  • Login - Login to the application portal to start a new application or continue the submission
  • Access applications - Manage your approved applications

Additional hints and templates for the project descriptions for NHR@TUD applications can be found at the following ZIH pages.

Please be aware that due to the switch to the national JARDS system, the approval period lasts in average between 4 and 8 weeks. There are technical and scientific reviews included, which vary depending on the type of application. Regular and large projects are only approved after a positive scientific review. Starter and trial projects are approved directly after a technical review.

User management

Once a project is approved, you can use the project management portal to manage the user access.

Project Type

The project type depends on the required resources and compute time using the HPC resources. It is possible to apply for HPC resources at TU Dresden via national NHR JARDSsystem. The previous system local JARDS was discontinued in April 2024, however, can still be accessed in 'read-only' mode.

Project types

  • NHR Starter
  • Test/Preparation Projects
  • Normal
  • Large

The range of CPU/GPU resources for each project type at the TU Dresden can be found on the ZIH pages.
