Research Compute Servers

The Research Compute Server resource is a pool of individual high-end servers that may be rented for periods of time. Minimum rental time is one month. These servers may be configured according to an individual’s or research group’s needs within software licensing constraints and with supported versions of Windows or Linux. This resource is meant to fill a gap for those who are unable to fund a robust server for research needs and require such a server for a limited amount of time.

The pool currently consists of the following hardware

Description Cost
Server #1: Supermicro AMD server, 2 processors, 64 total cores, 256GB RAM, 9TB local storage $130.52 per month
Server #2: Supermicro Intel server, 2 processors, 12 total cores, 64GB RAM, 250GB local storage $12.50 per month
Server #3: Supermicro Intel server, 2 processors, 12 total cores, 64GB RAM, 250GB local storage $12.50 per month

A $114 setup charge applies to all rentals.

To rent a server, submit an ETS Service Request.  A CSU account number is required.
