Armis2 Rates

The 2019-20 rates for the Armis2 cluster have been approved. These rates represent cost recovery for the Armis2 Cluster, and do not include any support your unit may choose to provide.

Partition Rate Per Minute Rate Per Month CPU Unit Memory Unit GPU Unit
standard/debug/viz $0.000511111  $22.08 1 7 gigabytes N/A
largemem $0.001437269  $62.09 1 26.89 gigabytes N/A
gpu $0.005167361  $223.23 5 15 gigabytes

The monthly rate is based on a 30-day month; per-minute rates are included for reference. Charges are based on the percentage of the machine your job requests (in terms of the amount of cores, memory, and GPUs) and its actual runtime. 

The Medical School and School of Public Health (while funds last) will cost-share 44% of the Armis 2 rates for sponsored research accounts for researchers in these units who are paying to use Armis 2 on unit shortcodes.

ARC-TS is working on providing a command-line and web-based method to calculate job charges to assist you in cost estimation.
