By leveraging economies of scale and combined purchasing power, ERIS can lower the cost of access to scientific computing infrastructure.
The ERISOne Cluster includes both "general" nodes, available on a fair-share basis to all investigators, and "adopted" nodes, where priority is given to the investigator or group who purchased those nodes. The adopt-a-node owner also has the ability to leverage all shared resources, while incurring zero ($0) support costs for maintenance of their nodes. When idle, these dedicated nodes may share compute capacity with the general pool, benefiting the Partners research community as a whole.
Where resource isolation is required for processing sensitive data, ERIS HPC supports "private clusters" where storage and compute are separated from the main cluster.
