• GPU Node - $30k
• High Memory Node - $30k
• Virtual Machine Node - $12-15k
• Storage Node - $26k
• 10G Network switch (48 ports) - $20k
• Mellanox Infiniband switch (36 ports) - $18k

Software Available on BeoShock

If you would like to request new software for HPC use the link below:

Request Software

Tip: Users of the HPC system should first email hpchelp@kanren.net.  You may also use the ITS ticket: HPC Help in order to contact the system adminstrators as well.  Our system administrators will know best what kind of software tools can be  installed the HPC system.  
Open Source code is the responsibility of the individual, it doesn’t require this form. The Software Request form is requesting system wide installations with purchased software.
Workloads may be terminated based upon administrative need (such as reboots, system failures, poorly processing code, etc.). 
Please Note: Data backups are the responsibility of the user.

Software Usage

Out of control or possibly malicious jobs on the HPC where Admins may be forced to end the job, could possibly impact the integrity of data through loss, is covered in the WSU's Acceptable Use Policy (AUP).
