Express access to RCS Compute Services

Standard access to our systems is unmetered and free-at-the-point-of-use. If you find yourself requiring more than the standard service provides, for example to meet a specific deadline, you may pay for express access. 

The current charges for express access are: 

  • High-Throughput Compute: is £0.24/node-hour, using nodes with 48 logical CPUs, 128GB of memory and low-performance interconnect.
  • High-End Compute: £0.24/node-hour, using nodes with 28 physical CPUs, 128GB of memory and high-performance interconnect.
  • GPU Compute: £0.13/GPU-hour, with Nvidia Quadro RTx600 Gpus, up to 8GPUs, 32 CPUs and 192GB of memory per job.

Request express access, please enclose a list of users and a GL Code for recharge.
