Allocation approvals

Access to NeSI compute and storage resources is managed through allocations. An allocation is a certain amount of a resource, or of a rate at which a resource can be consumed, during a defined period of time (in this case, the term of the Subscription).

Depending on the nature of your Subscription, you can choose to directly manage allocation approvals for projects from your institution or leave those decisions to the NeSI Support Team. See examples of some common approval scenarios below.

Subscription used by a single project

If there is only one project associated with a Subscription, the contract’s full resource entitlement can be allocated to that single project (with the division of resources such as storage vs compute left to the discretion of the project owner).

Subscription used by multiple projects

If the Subscription contract covers multiple projects, the contract entitlement is split between the projects. The Subscriber can decide how it should be split, or NeSI’s Support Team can review the project requests and make a recommendation based on project requirements.
