The Lifeportal at UiO is a portal service to ease the access to high performance computing resources for researchers.

About the Lifeportal

Lifeportal is a community-backed project. Major stakeholders contribute in-kind in the form of development hours, help-desk services, operations and infrastructure costs. The project has a steering group consisting of representatives from the contributing stakeholders, and the Lifeportal project leader apply for a large grant of CPU-resources from Notur through the normal mechanisms.

The CPU resources allocated by Notur are distributed to Lifeportal users. Users apply for sub-allocations through a simplified application procedure. The applications are processed continuously. The requirements for applicants are identical to the requirements for applicants for Notur projects.

    The update of the code will require a full Lifeportal maintenance stop on January 18th. (Wednesday). The service will be back by the end of the day or the day after should some unexpected complications occur during the update.

    The look of the Lifeportal will be slightly different after the update but the main features will function as before. The biggest change concerns the login procedure : please read...
