Ready-made datasets

An annual fee or a one-time fee will be charged for the use of ready-made data modules depending on whether the license has been granted for continuously delivered ready-made data module or one-time delivered ready-made data module.

One-time delivered ready-made data module

If the project has no need for updates, the material can be obtained for a one-time fee. In such cases, the latest versions of the data modules will be handed over to the research project at the time of delivery, and the project has access to the data for one year from delivery. During this time the data can be copied to the project’s workspace in FIONA (W-disk). Project has access to the copied data as long as the license is valid. The one-time delivered ready-made data modules are charged after delivery. The price for additional space is EUR 120 per 200 GB a year. 

Continuously delivered ready-made data module 

A continuously delivered ready-made data module means, that by paying an annual fee the research project can have access to ready-made modules and their future updates as long as the license is valid. The charges for the modules are invoiced twice a year at the same time the use of the remote access system is invoiced. In addition, there is an opening fee, which will be charged at the time of delivery and which is the same as the annual fee. 

The project that is using one-time delivered ready-made data modules can apply for the continuously delivered modules according to the normal application process. An opening fee is not charged if the licence is updated within the first year of data use.

In the current projects, the updates for the ready-made data modules have been interrupted in January 2022. The projects can use the data modules in accordance with the ending time as long as the previously granted license is valid.

Remote access use

A research project-specific use charge is paid for the virtual machine the research project has rented as well as a user fee based on the number of users using the machine. The research project selects a suitable virtual machine for its use.

Prices

Product Price
Virtual machine S (8 GB RAM, 4 cores) EUR 2,800 per year
Virtual machine M (16 GB RAM, 6 cores) EUR 3,500 per year
Virtual machine L (32 GB RAM, 8 cores) EUR 4,500 per year
Virtual machine XL (64 GB RAM, 8 cores) EUR 6,200 per year
User fee

EUR 180 per year / person

The remote access charges are invoiced twice a year, the invoicing period is six months: use between January and June is charged in June and use between July and December is charged in December. If the virtual machine is changed during the invoicing period, the use charge is for the largest virtual machine used.

The minimum length for invoicing is one invoicing period. Hence, the minimum charge is half the annual charge. If the use of the remote access starts or ends in the middle of the invoicing period, the charge will be set in proportion to the monthly level according to the start and end times provided that the use has continued for at least one whole invoicing period.

The user fee is determined according to the number of usernames that were open during the invoicing period.

Other remote access costs

A limited amount of disk space is reserved for each research project, additional disk space is charged for separately. The price for additional space is EUR 120 per 200 GB a year.
