While there is no cost for UB faculty groups to use CCR compute resources, queue priority is based on contribution level. At a minimum, faculty using CCR resources are required to:
Except during busy periods at the start of semesters, account requests are processed once per week on Thursdays.
All users must comply with the UB Computing Usage Policy.
In order to receive a priority boost in your jobs, you must have a funded grant that meets the criteria above and includes direct funds to CCR. At minimum, you should budget $2,600 per year (40 hours/year of CCR support staff time at the SPA approved rate of $65/hour for typical projects - higher amounts as appropriate for projects that are expected to more heavily utilize CCR services). Boosting your group's priority will substantially increase your job throughput. Please notify CCR Help with your grant information so we can provide you with the boost in queue priority.
Before you submit a grant, we are happy to work with you on the budget to help ensure that we can best support your project.
Acknowledging CCR in publications and grant proposals is important because it provides a metric by which the university can gauge the utility and impact that CCR resources (hardware, software, and personnel) have on externally funded research at UB.
