Requesting additional SUs or storage for Jetstream -- Supplemental Allocations



Login to portal.xsede.org

Go to https://portal.xsede.org/group/xup/submit-request#/

(You can also mouse over the "Allocations tab" and then select "Submit/Review Request")

Find your allocation. Under the Action menu for your allocation, select "Supplement"


Note: If your allocation is going to expire in 30 days or less, you will not see the Supplement option. You should see the Extension option, though. Choose a 3 month extension and once it's approved, the supplement button should appear.

Choose "Start Supplement"
Choose "IU/TACC Jetstream" and/or "IU/TACC Jetstream Storage" depending on whether you need SUs, additional storage, or both. 

Once you have selected the resources you need, you'll need to fill in the values of your request. The SU request has the same options as when you got your allocation. You'll fill in the SUs needed, the number VMs and IPs you expect to use (for forecasting purposes), and any comments. 

For storage requests, you'll fill in the value in gigabytes - e.g. 1000gb = 1TB. 

You will have to include a PDF "Progress Report" basically a paragraph or two on the need for the storage or SU request.

After you have added that, you may submit the request. 

Requests are typically reviewed within 1 to 2 business days. You'll receive notification from XSEDE Allocations on the status of your request once it has been reviewed by all service providers on the request.
