OTHER EECS ACCOUNT TYPES
Limited Account — This account type replaces the former Alumni, Collaborator and Emeritus account types. This account type offers limited services but is often appropriate for non-resident collaborators. The charge is $30/month per account. See the accounts page for more detailed information on what is included in this account.
ICF (INFRASTRUCTURE CAPITALIZATION FEE): $5/PERSON/MONTH FOR CORY, SODA, CALVIN AND SUTARDJA DAI HALL USERS, $2/PERSON/MONTH FOR NON-RESIDENTS
All IRIS users currently paying CIF will be billed this monthly rate. IRIS users not residing in Cory, Soda, Calvin or Sutardja Dai will be paying approximately 25% of the full cost. EECS Instructional will be paying the full equivalent. This rate will allow IRIS users to have ports and wireless access without any other additional costs.
STORAGE INFRASTRUCTURE FEE
All Full account holders pay a monthly fee of $10 which includes 20GB of disk storage for a home directory on home.eecs (our home directory fileserver). Any usage over the included allocation is charged at $0.04/GB/month.
Directory sizes are checked once a day, and we bill for the average usage value for the month. Backups are included.
Other types of accounts have reduced costs and reduced disk allocations. This chart summarizes the SIF rates.
|Account Type||Monthly Fee||Included Storage|
Disk Storage Fees
PROJECT SPACE: $0.04/GB/MONTH
We maintain a fileserver (
project.eecs.berkeley.edu) for long-term projects, where several people in a group can share data. The recharge rate is the same as for home ($.04/GB/month), and backups are similarly included. There are no up-front charges to create new project volumes, which can be requested with an online form.
Project space backups are on the same schedule as home directory storage. For archival storage of infrequently-changing data, see the archival storage section below.
ARCHIVAL DATA STORAGE: $0.02 GB/MONTH
“Archival” Disk storage means: No snapshots. Quarterly data replication to a remote site only, i.e. on a fixed every-three-month schedule. There is a risk of loss for data put there right after the last quarterly scheduled backup.
