In SURF Research Cloud, flavours are a predefined set of quantities that describe the dimensions of a workspace.

This is a list of the flavours that Research Cloud offers, depending on the application and the used cloud provider.

HPC Cloud

These flavours are for workspaces that are hosted in SURF's own HPC Cloud.

The creator of an application in the Research Cloud catalog can choose to offer a subset of these flavours for the application.
