History and Funding

The Last Seven Years: A Major Success

Until 2010 — no strategy?:
  • All research IT infra decentralised, locally-run;
  • dozens of Beowulfs around campus. . .
2010 and Onwards — massive buy-in from PIs:
  • 2010, Whitepaper: The CSF
    • 90k for baseline; other funding from PI users.
  • 2012, Isilon: The RDS Service
    • baseline uncharged; greater use charged.
    • Over 1000 shares, hundreds of research groups.
  • 2016, Research VM Platform
