RCC Buy-In Opportunity

Need dedicated computing, storage, or services in 2014 and 2015?  Let us know by April 30, 2014 to get the best pricing and service.  The RCC offers dedicated services to individuals, labs, and departments at a subsidized rate, so that you don’t have to waste time and money trying to buy and build your own.

We do this with limited subsidies from the FSU Office of Research, Information Technology Services, and College of Arts and Sciences and by purchasing hardware and services in volume.  Hardware is refreshed annually and our systems are aligned with high-speed campus and regional networks so that you can get the most from your investment.
