Pricing & Availability


Many Data Center services are provided without charge to clients. ITS covers these costs to encourage members of the UCSC community to use the central computing facilities.

Where services are recharged to clients, expenses vary depending on complexity, platform and networking requirements. Estimated costs are provided in advance, to help clients make an informed decision about using Data Center services.
