The enCORE service is priced as follows:

Annual subscription: a small annual fee of £350 is charged to create your account with one registered user. Additional users may be added for a small incremental feeCompute usage: this is charge by core hours used i.e. a job running on a compute node core for one hour = 1 core hour. The minimum charge per compute job is one node (16 cores) for one hour i.e. 16 core hours. Users do not share compute nodes, therefore you will be charged for all cores within any node that is used. Compute charges subject to quotation.Alternatively, you may request compute nodes to be dedicated for your exclusive use for a set period of time. This is subject to quotation, and the fee applies whether those nodes are used or not.
Storage: each subscription comes with 500Gb disk storage. Additional storage may be provided subject to quotation. There is no charge for data upload and download.

Any extensive work to establish a specific compute environment or complex application installation may be subject to separate charge.
