Can I get a private (virtual or physical) server from RCAC?
Often, researchers may want a private server to run databases, web servers, or other software. RCAC currently has Geddes, a Community Composable Platform optimized for composable, cloud-like workflows that are complementary to the batch applications run on Community Clusters. Funded by the National Science Foundation under grant OAC-2018926, Geddes consists of Dell Compute nodes with two 64-core AMD Epyc 'Rome' processors (128 cores per node).
To purchase access to Geddes today, go to the Cluster Access Purchase page. Please subscribe to our Community Cluster Program Mailing List to stay informed on the latest purchasing developments or contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
