Using our resources
Each account gets a free amount of data storage. If you have specific data storage requirements, we can discuss together to increase your quotas, however we expect you come with a clear data management plan (DMP).
If you plan to use our resources, please contact us before submitting your research project proposal to funding agencies. This will allow us to plan together your requirements and, if needed, the purchase of computing resources.
You can ask to be a trainer to create temporary accounts for your training session.
If you publish a research article, we ask you to add a note indicating that you used our resources. Please see the Citing GenOuest page

What we do
Managing a computing facility also means managing operating systems, networks, user account and many other things. To do so, we develop internally many software. And because we use many open source software, almost all our developments are open source too. They are usually available at https://github.com/genouest.
