CSF Procurement Call Out Now


The call is now out for the annual end-of-financial-year CSF (Central Shared Facility) procurement.  If your research group has funds and wishes to make a contribution, this University financial year, to the CSF, please get in touch as soon as possible.

The deadline for the procurement is the 31st of May which is a hard deadline due to lead times and the requirement to receipt goods before 31 July.

The current standard CSF compute node is:

  • two * 16-core Intel Skylake CPUs (i.e., 32 cores total)
  • 192 GB RAM
  • 2 TB internal disk
  • Infiniband interconnect

The cost of each node is approximately £7k including installation, maintenance and VAT.  For more information please contact Simon Hood, Head of Research Infrastructure.
