- About Us
The User Services Section (USS) works with CISL users, managing the processes by which they get access to CISL computing and storage resources, managing and supporting the user environment on those resources, and providing advanced computational consulting services.
USS manages the allocations process for the Climate Simulation Lab, university, and NCAR user communities. Our allocations pages provide details on the various opportunities that are available.
USS coordinates efforts to review CISL's cross-cutting user support workflows from the users' perspective and ensure that they operate as efficiently and conveniently as possible. These cross-cutting areas include allocations; user creation and set-up; user-oriented monitoring; self-help and documentation; user support; and accounting.
The Consulting Services Group (CSG) is part of the User Services Section. CSG focuses on assisting users of the high-performance computing facilities, including services for computation, data analysis, data post-processing, visualization, large-scale data sharing, and mass storage.
CSG works to enhance scientific workflows by providing the research community with porting assistance, documentation, and effective strategies for use of high-performance computing resources.
