A model of access to computing capacity of existing HPC infrastructure for companies and organizations that have as their object the provision of services to third parties or development of product development activities that aim to obtain a benefit is set their business is described. Those activities conducted by universities, public and private organizations for R & D non-profit, are excluded and specific agreements will be established. Also, the companies installed in the Tenerife Science and Technology Park (PCTT) will have priority when establishing periods of access to infrastructure.
On demand computation prices are set according to the attached model for standard computing services . The services can be provided from Teide HPC infrastructure are:
IaaS : Infrastructure as a service. The amount of storage adn computing nodes requested are provided.
PaaS : Platform as a Service . Above the IaaS level, computing nodes are supplied with OS deployed , monitoring service...
SaaS : Software as a Service. Massively parallel execution of software installed on the machine is offered. If necessary, the installation and optimization of the software or the infrastructure could be done to fit customer needs.
User access accounts : Includes 5GB of NFS storage.
Storage: Storage is offered in 1GB slots
After the receipt of this form, ITER will issue a binding offer for the total services requested. This offer will have a maximum validity period of a month.
