About RCTS Housing
RCTS Housing provides a data centre service integrated in the RCTS network, with excellent connectivity conditions for the hosted equipment and structured in several levels.
The spaces are specially conditioned to house IT equipment, in a long-lasting operating regiment, with high availability and performance.
The hosting service may take one of the following forms:
- In datacenter managed by FCCN, integrated in the RCTS backbone.
- In Public Administration datacenter with dedicated connection to RCTS
- In commercial datacenter with dedicated connection to RCTS
The decision will be made on a case-by-case basis, after evaluation of the proposal and analysis of factors such as technical availability and relevance of the project to FCCN's mission.
Due to the nature of the RCTS Housing service, namely with the expressive and highly variable energy costs, the financial costs of the service are not included in the RCTS connection service, leading to a separate proposal, which in some cases, may be supported by FCCN.
In case of use of third party datacenters the user entity shall conclude a direct service agreement, including the financial conditions, with that third party entity.
See the data sheet with the conditions of use of the service.
If your entity is part of the academic or scientific community and is not yet part of the RCTS Network, see here how to join and be able to use the RCTS Housing service.
