Costs

The fee for using this environment amounts to 50 euros per year per user.

Conditions

If a user starts an application, the appliction is not run on the system of the user but on a back-end server environment in the UT's datacenter. All processor, memory and disk intensive tasks are run in the server environment and only the output, the application window, is displayed on the user's system.

At this moment the server environment is only executed in a single data center. This means that the environment does not provide high availability, which may lead to down-time. It is possible that the hardware will be redundantly implemented in both data centers in the future in order to increase availability.

Maintenance on the environment will take place every third Monday of the month between 06.00 to 8.30 hrs.
