The Ares Allocation Committee is charged with advising the Director of CCS in allocating resources on the IBM-p5 cluster. As part of that process, the committee is developing procedures for documenting how the system is currently being utilized, and whether this is the most effective use of the resource. As use of this new system matures and demand increases, the Allocation Committee will implement a request and review process for access to the system. This request and review process is currently underdevelopment and will shared with all users for comment and feedback. The committee will also help CCS document for the wider University of Miami community how the resources are enabling scientific advancements.
