Please note the following limitations for using NHR resources:

  1. The NHR regulations limit the access to NHR resources to scientists at German universities (see NHR Alliance, Computing Time / NHR-Verein, Rechnernutzung).
  2. Due to export control, the NHR systems "HLRN-IV" is not accessible for people originating from certain countries. For details, please read the document Supercomputer und Exportkontrolle of the BMBF and the information on the service portral.
