A researcher on a college or university campus needs to open and use a remote desktop session for a period of time potentially measured in several days. The system that provides the desktop session is a service of the public research computing community.
User Importance Summary:
Researchers and students at non-R01 institutions often lack access to modern computer equipment, making it difficult for them to run current research software or process data at scales typical for R01 research labs. The ability to allocate and use a remote system using a screen-sharing interface can provide these researchers access to current applications and data.
Target Communities and Sizes:
Researchers at non-R01 institutions who successfully apply for community access - 100 < N < 1,000
Educators at non-R01 institutions who successfully apply for community education allocations - 100 < N < 1,000
