MaX provides user support and consulting services to users of electronic structure codes on HPC systems, including MaX flagship codes and beyond (e.g. CPMD, VASP, ADF, etc…). A quantum mobile service and a cloud platform – Aiida Lab – for accessible Materials Simulations are also available.
The support actions are offered irrespective of the source of computational resources (it could be national resources, as well PRACE resources or institutional or private resources). Some priority is given to users running on PRACE resources.
We operate the Helpdesk to help users to exploit at best the MaX codes on different architectures and offer ad hoc solutions when needed.
Disclaimer: We try to support all users, but we can guarantee our services only within the available time and resources of MaX. In case of overload, we may have to inform users about the actual availability and time schedule of the services.
Services offered by the Centre of Excellence:
This is the first entry point to ask for MaX support on questions that are specific to the materials HPC domain.
This service is dedicated to advanced requests and users.
MaX will document the generation of platform-optimized containers for a selected set of HPC centres offering support for this technology.
Quantum Mobile — a VirtualBox machine that comes with AIIDA and a set of commonly used quantum codes preinstalled.
Sharing research data needs to go beyond the simple publication of a research paper. Instead, allowing the sharing of full data and metadata compliant with the FAIR requirements is an essential cornerstone of data stewardship.
