BioHPC Lab:
Pricing

NOTE: Any user that does not have a valid Cornell Netid is an external user. Internal Cornell pricing can be only applied to purchases funded from Cornell sources (grants, general Cornell accounts, etc).

NOTE: Prices per core core listed below depend on number of cores in a server (shown in parenthesis for each type of server). It is not possible to reserve a single core, only the entire server.

 

storage
This pricing applies to networked storage hosted on our storage cluster. For more details please look here. Storage used for backups is listed as "1 TB-year backup", please refer to this document for more information.

Computing hours
Lab Credit Accounts can be now used for all machines, there is no need to create an account for each type of machine. The pricing below refers to the units available on purchase page ('purchase unit'), the actual hours value depends on the machine type and is listed below as 'current unit' and 'hours'. Conversion factors between hours used on different machine types are in the table below. The following tables show the actual dollar cost for machine reservations.

Membership: general membership
This membership allows you to use continuously the types of machines listed in the table below with some limits. The limits are 'rolling' which means that they have to be met an any given time, but get updated over time. For example if you make the maximum length reservation now, you will be able to extend it by one day tomorrow at the same time.
