Update on the New Cost Model: March 1, 2021 is the Start Date for Compute and Storage Billing

Dear PACE research community,

Last week, we completed the last batch of user migrations to the Phoenix cluster, which was a major milestone for our research community and PACE. We are grateful for all your support and understanding during this major undertaking of migrating our user community from Rich to Coda datacenter – thank you!

At this time, we want to share an update in reference to the new cost model. We are updating the start date for compute and storage billing from the tentative January 1 to March 1, 2021 as the new start date for billing. This means that users will not be charged for their usage of compute and storage resources until March 1, 2021.   Given this grace period extension, we have implemented measures to ensure fair use of the Phoenix cluster, which was reported on December 14 to user community and at this blog post.  This grace period extension should provide ample time for the research community to adopt to the Phoenix cluster and the new cost model.

If you have any questions, concerns or comments about your recent migration to the Phoenix cluster, please direct them to

Happy Holidays!

The PACE Team
