Space Rates

Space digital research storage pricing is designed to be as simple and easy to calculate as possible. We charge purely for disk consumed by its performance characteristics. That's it. No I/O thresholds, quotas, caps, network traffic charges, or other hidden fees that you are probably accustomed to when dealing with non-research-oriented providers.

 

Achieving Orbit

Space is a collaboratively funded scarce resource, and it is in everybody’s interest to have a stable and sustained future, so commercial models generally apply.

  • Pricing is simple: you pay for what you use. Discounted rates are available to members.
  • Consumption is billed monthly, based on the high water mark for the period.
  • Prepaid ceiling pricing is available as an optional benefit from membership in Intersect.

If your payload is data from research, considered useful for other researchers, well described by metadata and recognised as valuable by a research organisation, it’s a great candidate for launch.

Intersect research cloud computing pricing is designed to be as simple and easy to calculate as possible. We charge purely for time consumed by virtual machine 'flavour', that is its performance characteristics. That's it. No I/O thresholds, quotas, caps, network traffic charges*, or other hidden fees that you are probably accustomed to when dealing with non-research global cloud providers.
