Server Package D

Preamble

RHPCS is pleased to announce a new server hosting package that is tailored to research groups. Please note that this service is in its infancy, and pricing and details of this service may change as it matures.

The basic package

The basic server package includes 1 CPU core, 1GB RAM, 1 TB of storage and nightly backups which are on a 14 day rotating cycle, as well as basic OS updates and user management where required.  

Pricing

The basic package as outlined above costs $4000 per year for research clients ($8000 per year for administrative and external clients). This includes a maximum of 75 support hours over the course of the year, which can be used for any purpose. Additional support hours are billed at $125 / hour (or if ongoing system administration is required, please talk to us about whether it may be cheaper for you to purchase a support contract). There is a one-time set up fee of $500.

Upgrades

Extra storage and memory can be purchased for an additional yearly fee subject to capacity. 

Custom configurations

The server can be configured as per your specifications. Any applications or custom configurations are billed at a rate of $125 / hour. Please see our website for support contract rates.
