Usage model

Resources are allocated to users based on a stakeholder model. Each participating department will be given an agreed share of resources. This discussion will be carried out in the board of the Science-IT project. Based on this agreed share departments/units will cover the running expenses of the project. There is also direct Aalto funding, which allows the entire Aalto community to access a fraction of Triton for free. Furthermore each department is required to nominate a local support contact. This person will be the first contact point for local support.

For evaluation and testing purposes small amount of Science-IT resources can be opened without further responsibilities. See contact page for asking further information.
