The objective of PRACE Preparatory Access is to allow PRACE users to optimise, scale and test codes on PRACE systems. Preparatory Access (PA) Type D offers users to start the optimisation work on a PRACE Tier-1 system to finally reach PRACE Tier-0 system scalability.
This type of access is meant to bridge the gap between the local university- or site-specific computing resources towards the PRACE Tier-0 platforms. The access to a Tier-1 system introduces an intermediate scaling level without having to face greater restrictions at the start of the optimisation work.
PRACE Preparatory Access Type D is expected to become available for project applications early 2017.
