Research and Teaching Unit Spending Plan 2019/20, 2020/21, 2021/22

Spending plan for the Research and Teaching unit for financial year 2019/20, 2020/21, 2021/22.

This spending plan assumes that a virtualisation service (KVM) will continue to be provided (sufficiently resourced and funded) outside of the Unit. The unit is already extensively virtualised, physical servers that exist are there purely because of particular performance/robustness requirements.

Physical Servers:

All other servers are either virtual (running under KVM on either commonrail or one of the MPU maintained KVM hosts), owned by research group/grant, part of the CDT/Research clusters.
