Virtual Machines/Cloud Service

OpenStack is an open-source cloud platform that manages distributed compute, network and storage resources, aggregates them into pools, and allows on-demand provisioning of virtual resources. These resources can be configured to fit all needs and be used to run any kind of virtualized workflow, in a usual “cloud compute” setting.

HPC center can provide OpenStack access to both University of Tartu and ETAIS users, although most users are encouraged to access OpenStack through the ETAIS self-service portal.


The table below indicates the prices of our services for the structural units of University of Tartu and users outside of the University. For additional information please check our pricing.

Virtual server hosting
  • CPU 0.003 EUR/core h
  • Memory 0.0013 EUR/1GB/h
  • Storage SSD storage 0.138 EUR/1TB/h

  • Billing is the sum of used resources cost. For example, in case of a virtual server m.xsmall flavor with 1 processor core, 1GB of ram and 10GB of SSD storage space allocated for it, will cost 1*0.003*24*365 = 26 euros per year for the CPU and 1*0.0013*24*365 = 11 euros per year for RAM and 1/10*0.138*24*365 = 120 euros per year for the storage space.
