Currently there are no compute nodes available for purchase on the Mills or Farber clusters. Below is an example of the prices for the standard compute nodes and the specialty compute nodes for the new cluster.
The new cluster is expected to arrive the last week in March 2018. Please contact email@example.com for pricing information or additional questions regarding the new cluster.
|Description||Avail / Total||Cost|
||24 / 60||$5000|
||25 / 48||+$1000|
||2 / 6||+$3500|
||3 / 7||+$7000|

“The importance of the community clusters in our research is that they provide a gateway to access larger national computing resource, e.g., XSEDE. As you can see, before 2012 we only get toy hours from XSEDE (below 150k SU). After we have Mills, we start to get significant SUs from XSEDE. This is because we can test run our code (for scalability, etc) in Mills and justify applying more hours from XSEDE.”Dr. Tian-Jian Hsu
“The Mills cluster has been one of the reasons why I accepted my position at UD. Without it, I would not have been able to perform the computer-intensive simulations that I need for my research on turbulence generated by wind turbines. Being the biggest users of the cluster, my team and I have been interacting very closely with the IT team, whose support and help have been invaluable.”Dr. Cristina Archer
