The Dutch science funding organization NWO is in the process of drafting requirements for the procurement of a future high-performance compute facility. To investigate the requirements for this facility to potentially support high-throughput workloads in addition to traditional high-performance workloads, a broad range of HEP workloads are being functionally tested on the current facility. The requirements obtained from this pilot will be presented, together with technical issues solved and requirements on HPC and HEP software and support.
