After each Call has been concluded we publish the compute time allocated to each project, in terms of CPU-Mhours on the DiRAC Resource on which the calculations are to be run, as well as the Storage Space [TB] allocated. In DiRAC we have three compute services and due to the different architectures on each service, the CPU-Mhours awarded to projects using different services may not be directly comprable.

For more information please email the Project Office
