Request a Virtual Machine

 

To request a VM on Bridges, please complete this form.   We will contact you within one business day once we receive your request.

Charging

Once your VM has been established, it is reserved for your use for the period you request. Note that you will be charged for all the time your VM is reserved, whether you are actively using it or not.

Charges on VMs accrue at the rate of 1 SU per core-hour. For example, requesting a VM with one core for one week will result in charges of 168 SUs; a one core VM reserved for one year will be charged 8760 SUs.  

Likewise, a VM with 2 cores is charged 336 SUs per week and 17,520 SUs per year.

Questions:  Contact bridges@psc.edu with any questions.



Please list:
  • What type of data will be used: a database? large files? etc.
  • Estimated space required for each type
  • Estimated space requirements for installed software
Note that charges are 1 SU for each core-hour. See "Charging" above for a fuller explanation.

Let us know if your VM requires an open network port, e.g, if it is a web server.
Be sure to describe any special requests, for example, a specific Apache configuration.


Submit a separate request for each unique VM configuration.
