NUCloud is an Infrastructure
-
as
-
a
-
Service (IaaS) offering from the Northwestern University Information
Technology division (NUIT) that provides computing services to major University
units within a private cloud
model. Tenants share underlying hardware components while isolated from one another into “virtual data
centers” (VDCs). Each tenant manages its VDC resources to deploy servers and storage to meet its application
needs. Becau
se NUCloud is within the central data center, availability and reliability match that of enterprise
-
level systems.


NUIT solicits applications for tenancy in NUCloud once each year during February.

Applications are due back to
NUIT by June 1. Based upon
the applications received, and the funds available to expand the NUCloud
infrastructure, applications are accepted based upon a mix of merit and maximizing use. New tenants are
notified in
early
July
.
Applications should be completed and sent via email t
o Tom Board,
associate vice
president, of

Cyberinfrastructure (
teb@northwestern.edu
).

Sizing

of
a
virtual data center


Virtual data centers are de
scribed in terms of total CPU GH
z, RAM G
B
, and
s
torage G
B

that can be allocated
to create virtual servers.

The smallest quantum used in NUCloud is the “virtual CPU” or vCPU
,

which
equates to a single compute core of
500 MHz
, 2GB RAM, and 60GB of storage. Applicants can use this vCPU
description to build the processing component of their needs and then add ad
ditional storage equivalent to
direct
-
attached data capacity.

are available to offer advice
on sizing calculations. Please contact John
