Compute Canada: Resource Allocation Competitions (RAC)



Compute Canada has invited researchers to apply to the annual Resource Allocation Competitions (RAC) to request storage and compute resources.



Researchers are able to apply to two RAC.



1.  Resources for Research Groups (RRG) Competition, the objective:  to enable faculty members (from all disciplines) and their sponsored users to access compute, storage, or cloud resources at a
scale beyond that available from local institutional, provincial resources, or the Rapid Access Service.

2.  Research Platforms and Portals (RPP) Competition, the objective:  to enable communities to develop research projects that improve access to shared datasets, enhance existing online research tools
and facilities, or advance national or international research collaborations.  The RPP competition focuses solely on scientific gateways.  The RPP  allows faculty members and their sponsored research groups access to compute and storage resources, beyond what can be obtained via the Rapid Access Service.
