About MSI Services

MSI Services

MSI offers more than 125 million hours of free computing annually to University of Minnesota faculty and collaborators. Access is determined by the "fair share" algorithm in the SLURM system, favoring groups with lower recent computing usage. To ensure access, faculty can lease dedicated hardware on existing HPC systems. Additional services and prices are detailed, including generous storage allocations for research projects. Groups needing extra storage beyond justified limits have options. For inquiries about purchasing dedicated access, contact help@msi.umn.edu.
