MSI Introduces Dedicated Computing Service

MSI has introduced a new service, Dedicated Computing. This service allows researchers to purchase dedicated access to computing if groups have computational needs beyond what they can get through the regular MSI allocation process. For example, this service might be helpful when your research demands more immediate access to HPC resources or more computing than you can get with your regular fair share.   

UMN faculty can purchase the Dedicated Computing service for a 1-year or 5-year term. The new service features several different configuration types including high-memory and GPU-enabled. Resources associated with this service are fully maintained by MSI staff over the life of the service. The Dedicated Computing web page has complete information about available options and the terms of service.

Contact the MSI Help Desk with questions about Dedicated Computing or other services by emailing at or by filling out the Support Request form
