The computational hours can also be referred to as a “core-hour”. These costs are calculated for work simulations based on duration, the number of cores (CPUs) including consulting from HPC unit and data storage.

For disk storage, we recommend to users quickly download the output results after the job has been completed.

 

Billing Process

User will be billed based on their last completed job. Invoice for payment of HPC services will be prepared by Business Development Officer (BDO) and emailed to the user by HPC unit.
