Groups that have specific scientific or engineering objectives that require high-performance computing resources are asked to create a project for their work on the Wilson HPC facility. Approved projects are granted higher priority access to cluster resources.
Requests for a project are initiated by filling out the Add/Modify Wilson Cluster Project form in Fermilab Service Now. Note that the person requesting a project must have a Fermilab Services account to access the form.
Once a project has been approved the point of contact will be notified that they can invite users to self-join the project using the Add / Remove User for Wilson Cluster Project form in Fermilab Service Now. The instructions for adding a user is located in the Add / Remove User for Wilson Cluster Project section below.
