Private Faculty Servers

The SCRC currently only supports servers running in our cloud. For faculty who have research money to buy equipment, we typically have them purchase a cloud server, and run their applications on that in one or more dedicated virtual machines, and other VMs can run on the cloud server. This allows more flexibility for both  researchers and the SCRC, as the VMs for  researchers can be moved to other cloud servers if necessary. This provides much better utilization, saves power, air and rack space and is much easier to administer.

Lightly used virtual machines are typically provided at no cost, while for larger servers we may negotiate a fee, but that will typically be less than what a physical server will cost or the cost on a public cloud.
