Please note that GHub now enjoys priority access to CCR compute nodes. This change is transparent to you (but should result in shorter wait times for resources, both regular 'submit' jobs and Pegasus jobs). Any issues, problems, or questions, please enter a ticket.

We are excited to announce new ISMIP6 data access!

ISMIP6 collaborators can now access the data store at CCR and UB using Globus for efficient, easy file transfer.

Most datasets stored on 1km grids can be found on UB Geology's Thule server (endpoint name: Thule_ISMIP6); larger grids are stored on CCR's own project space.

Access Globus using your own institutional credentials. This utility makes data access fast, secure, and easy. Just contact us by creating a ticket with your user details to get set up.

Welcome GHub users!

Please check out our newly published tools, which make use of the CCR high-performance computing cluster:
