Dedicated computing options are available for purchase when an MSI allocation is not enough to meet your computational needs. Multiple service configurations are available for a one-time fee.
The following four dedicate computing configuration options are available for purchase. The smallest unit of service for purchase corresponds to a single compute node. Configuration options and costs for FY21 are:
|CPU||Memory||GPUs||1 Year Cost||5 Year Cost|
|Option 1||128 cores AMD||256 GB||none||$3,454.74||$16,184.64|
|Option 2||128 cores AMD||512 GB||none||$3,869.24||$18,257.14|
|Option 3||128 cores AMD||2048 GB||none||$6,198.51||$29,903.47|
|Option 4||24 cores Intel||384 GB||2 x NVIDIA v100||$4,793.42||$22,878.02|
Note: Dedicated Computing is exempt from Facilities and Administrative costs. The rationale for this approach follows a national trend toward incentivizing best practices related to computing and data storage. They may be delays in provisioning some solutions based on immediate supply. Additional new options will become available after the commissioning of the new system in early summer 2021.
MSI will offer dedicated computing through two options. A one year agreement and a five year agreement.
