Research and Teaching Unit Spending Plan 2020/21, 2021/22, 2022/23

Spending plan for the Research and Teaching unit for financial year 2020/21, 2021/22, 2022/23

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.
