This reduces the administrative burden for teachers and UPPMAX staff in terms of adding students to the course project and setting up data. However, it is up to the instructors to ensure that the resources are used appropriately and the project directory does not exceed quota.&nbsp;</p> <p>Think about whether this applies for your students when you apply for next year's course projects.&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;</p> Tue, 12 Dec 2023 18:16:00 GMT https://www.uppmax.uu.se/nyheter?tarContentId=1074212&rssTarget=501696&rssTitle=UPPMAX%20News&newsDetailSiteNodeId=136428&newsListSiteNodeId=136428&showLeadIn=true 2023-12-12T18:16:00Z New procurement at UPPMAX https://www.uppmax.uu.se/nyheter?tarContentId=1071528&rssTarget=501696&rssTitle=UPPMAX%20News&newsDetailSiteNodeId=136428&newsListSiteNodeId=136428&showLeadIn=true <p>UPPMAX has received instructions to start procuring a system to meet Uppsala University's local needs for sensitive and non-sensitive HPC and cloud services in both research and general education.
