Dash User Guide: System Access
As an XSEDE computing resource, Dash is accessible to XSEDE users who are given time on the system. In order to get an account, users will need to submit a proposal through the XSEDE User Portal. Because of Dash's small size, the allocations committee will approve requests only for projects that will benefit from Dash's unique features (namely, vSMP and Flash storage); therefore, requests must include adequate justification for using Dash. Interested users may contact SDSC User Support for assistance (see the sidebar for contact information).
