XSEDE Capability Delivery Plan for "HPC-04: Submit jobs to a discounted job queue where they might be interrupted"

Use Case HPC-04: Submit jobs to a discounted job queue where they might be interrupted

Area: Scientific Computing

Executive Summary: A researcher wants to consume more resources than they have been allocated and is willing to run at a discounted rate and a lower quality of service to have access to additional computing resources. The researcher may be running out of allocated resources, or may know up front that they need more resources than they have access to, and are therefore willing to use a lower quality of service, which includes the possibility of job interruption, in order to be charged a discounted rate.
