     11== Alternatives to Cypress ==
     12
     13Please consider that your intended computational workload may not be suitable for running on Cypress due to either of the following.
     141. Your workload may not require the highly parallel capabilities of Cypress,
     152. Your workload may require longer run times and/or a greater degree of your interaction directly with one or more compute nodes than that available on Cypress via SLURM. (See [[https://wiki.hpc.tulane.edu/trac/wiki/cypress/about#SLURMresourcemanager | SLURM]].)
     16
     17If either of the above apply to your intended computational workload, then consider using one of the following alternatives.
     18
     19==== Virtual Digital Infrastucture (VDI) Workstation ====
     20You can request a virtual workstation with specific software, memory, and/or processing power. You can submit a request for VDI by visiting Tulane Service Now at:
     21
     22https://tulane.service-now.com/
     23
     24After logging in with your Tulane credentials, from the left side panel select "Service Catalog", then "Catalog". Then in the main panel under Infrastucture and Services, select "Virtual Desktop Request" and fill out the form.
     25
     26==== Virtual Machine Server (VMS) ====
     27You can submit a request for a VMS by visiting Tulane Service Now at:
