Private Faculty Servers
SCRC currently hosts several Linux and Windows private research servers, often purchased on faculty grants, primarily dedicated to a particular research project. In many cases idle services will be used for Stern GRID computing, however, first priority for computing resources is given to the client researcher.
However, if you are considering having us host a physical server, please first look at our [cloud computing support]. We can provide you almost any kind of server within hours, and the configuration is easily changed and upgraded. This solution makes much better use of Stern’s resources and saves on power, air-conditioning and maintenance. Lightly used servers are typically provide at no cost, while for larger servers we may negotiate a fee, but that will typically be less than what a physical server will cost.
