Commercial Pricing

Certain commercial organizations may be eligible to purchase resources from UF Research Computing. Pricing for these purchases is separate from the subsidized rates paid by UF faculty members and research collaborators, and are delineated as follows:

  • Discounted commercial rates are applicable to purchases by UF-supported startup companies, such as those associated with the Innovation Hub.
  • Full commerical rates are applicable to purchases by a limited number of organizations that meet certain qualifications for purchasing through UFIT Research Computing.

Commercial rates are determined by calculating the total cost recovery for providing the products and services, including amortization of equipment and infrastructure. For questions regarding eligibility and purchasing at commercial rates, submit an inquiry.
