Talapas is transitioning to a chargeback model which will go into effect on July 1st, 2019. Talapas will be run on a mixed club/condo model. University of Oregon researchers who join the compute club will be charged a flat per Service Unit (SU) rate of $0.008 per SU. Academic researchers from external institutions may also join the compute club at the rate of $0.02 per SU. We also offer researchers several storage tiers designed to accommodate a variety of workflows. 

Internal Storage Tiers

Plan Terabytes $/annum (UO only) $/extra

100GB/month
Platinum+ 60 $5,760 $3
Platinum 30 $2,160 $2
Gold 15 $960 $1
Silver 7.5 $480 $1
Bronze 4 $240 $1
Copper 2 $120 $1

External Academic Storage Tiers

Plan Terabytes $/annum (External Academic) $/extra

100GB/month
Platinum+ 60 $8,640 $4.5
Platinum 30 $3,240 $3
Gold 15 $1,140 $1.50
Silver 7.5 $720 $1.50
Bronze 4 $360 $1.50
Copper 2 $180 $1.50

 

Alternatively, University of Oregon researchers may choose to purchase their own compute nodes to be installed in the condo section of Talapas. RACS will work with the researcher to identify the node type that best meets their needs, facilitate the order with our vendor, and then install, administer, and maintain the nodes free of charge. These nodes will be made available to the condo investor on an immediate and on-demand basis through separate partitions in the scheduling system. Idle cycles on condo resources may be made available to the larger community, but only in such a way as to not interfere with the investor's access to purchased resources.
