Argo Cluster Business Model

The Argo cluster has been built with money from the Office of Research Computing and by money contributed by research groups, individual faculty and departments.  The cluster can be  further expanded by the university and/or  by university researchers contributing their  grant money for specific additions to the cluster to meet their individual research needs.

The advantages to being a Contributor to the cluster are:

  • Higher priority access to the whole cluster.
  • Preemptive access to the nodes the contributing researcher has funded.
  • Temporary exclusive access to  the nodes the contributing researcher has funded.
