Researcher Resources : Base Allocations

Researcher base allocations of resources are given in the table below.

Base resources are available to all NJIT researchers. If resources beyond the base allocation are needed, the reserachers must arrange for the purchase of such resources. Resources that are purchased are dedicated to the purchaser. See also : Off-premise computational resources.

Number Resource type Resource name Default allocation Cost of dedicated resource Notes
1 HPC cluster, CPU shared use [1], [2] contact
2 HPC cluster, GPU shared use [1], [2] contact
3 Hadoop/Spark cluster shared use [1] contact
4 Oracle server shared use [1], [2]; 100GB max DiskAndBackupCost
5 Oracle server 4000GB max DiskAndBackupCost Reserved for UMLS project (CS)
6 Virtual machine chosen by researcher 2 cores, 4GB RAM, 40GB disk VMCost
7 Disk AFS 500GB max [3] DiskAndBackupCost Accessible from all AFS clients - Linux, MacOSX, Windows
8 Disk NFS 500GB max [4] DiskAndBackupCost Accessible only from the HPC cluster to which it is attached

[1]. General use of this resource is shared by multiple users on a fair share basis. Users who regularly dominate the use of the resource will be asked to purchase dedicated resources, or use off-premise resources.<
[2]. Researchers may purchase dedicated resources.
[3]. Independent of NFS allocation.
[4]. Independent of AFS allocation.
