Because of limited resources, Academic Information Technologies cannot guarantee that there will be enough computer resources to satisfy all the computing needs of everyone who receives a computing access grant. When feasible, Academic Information Technologies will provide assistance porting and optimizing codes to the Alpha Farm.
