Snellius and Lisa, similarities and differences
Lisa and Snellius both are compute facilities, clusters on which compute jobs can be run that utilise one node, or multiple nodes in parallel in an orchestrated way. However, both systems are funded differently and consequently options and conditions for obtaining access to either or both of these systems may not be the same for all potential users. In addition, both compute facilities are definitely systems in their own right, with different node flavours and other resource features.
While both systems are optimised to match their specific resources, SURF strives to optimise commonality between the two systems from a user perspective. In our view, it should be easy for users to go from one system to another in either direction, or to have projects on both systems, without a steep learning curve.
