Personal course is offered for individuals. One batch queue is shared by users of Personal course on a best-effort basis, and is controlled by the fair-share scheduling to prevent the exclusive use.
Group course was designed for using in laboratories and collaborative research groups. A UNIX group and a batch job queue are assigned to each group. A certain amount of resources relative to the requested resources (1/1, 1/2, or 1/4) are always ensured depending on course type.

Private cluster course was consciously designed as a cluster system deployed in a laboratory, and ensures a certain amount of computation resources (the number of nodes). This course users can directly log in to the system because one global IP address is assigned. Batch system is not supported.
On the other hand, Group course type B3 is designed for the exclusive use of computation resources by the batch system, the requested amount of computation resources (the number of nodes) are always ensured.

We only accept applications for increasing resources or using service courses during the specified period. Date and time of application will be provided on the website, etc. The current application information can be found on "Information for Service Course Application".
