Helps you with setting up a storage either by investing in 6 TB storage disks that each have a 5-year lifespan or by renting storage space by the terabyte/month (TB/month).
Illinois researchers can gain access to the ICCP storage system either by investing in 6 TB storage disks that each have a 5-year lifespan or by renting storage space by the terabyte/month (TB/month) through the Research Storage as a Service (RSaaS). Researchers with shorter duration or more sporadic storage needs may prefer the RSaaS option.
The Campus Cluster file system provides projects with a high performance storage space that is attached to a large compute service and the high-speed CARNE network. Use models include operational data storage and scratch space for analysis, mid-term storage for research data, a central storage space for compute and data sharing workflows for cross-campus collaboration, and more. Learn more about the ICCP storage environment.
Researches can gain access to the ICCP storage system either by investing in storage disks (each disk contains 6TB of storage space) or renting storage space by the terabyte/month (TB/month) through the Research Storage as a Service (RSaaS).
Invest in Storage Disks
An Investor or Investor Group can purchase 6 TB disks that each have a 5-year lifespan. This option is best for those with ongoing storage needs.
Cost for one 6 TB disk: $830.53
Fee to cover fair share portion of shared infrastructure costs: $600/disk
Total per disk: $1,430.53
Rent Storage Space through Research Storage as a Service (RSaaS)
This option is especially beneficial for projects with short to moderate duration or sporadic needs.
Cost: $4.67 per terabyte per month (chargeable to grants and exempt from F&A)
The general rules for RSaaS billing are:
NOTE: All ICCP customers will be required to sign the Service Level Definition for the product or service they purchase. These SLDs outline policies related to these purchases. Find the appropriate SLD for the product or service you’re considering here.
