Amber / NAMD / GROMACS Pricing

Overview

GridMarkets pricing is all-inclusive. No hidden fees mean our quoted price includes the cost of: machines (32 threads / 64GB), data storage, data egress, all simulations software and operating system licenses. Control your project’s cost and budget with the following customizable options:

  1. Number of concurrently running machines (1 to 60),

  2. Configuration of machines used during the simulation,

  3. Duration of your simulation,

  4. Discounts of 50% for academic customers. Contact us.

 

Further maximize your budget with our two pricing models: on-demand hourly and weekly fixed price. With Hourly On-Demand Pricing, the total machine hours consumed are billed at a machine-per-hour rate. Our Fixed Rate Pricing is determined by the number of selected machines needed for a pre-set, longer duration of time.

Hourly On-Demand Pricing

Running a single simulation? Then GridMarkets’ hourly on-demand pricing is the the most cost effective option for you.  The table that follows shows the cost per (48 threaded) machine-hour for our different service levels:

  • Economy - run up to 5 machines concurrently

  • Standard - run up to 30 machines concurrently

  • Rush - run up to 60 machines concurrently

Fixed Rate Pricing

Running multiple simulations in a set-period of time? Need to stay within a specific budget? Then GridMarkets’ Fixed Rate Pricing option is your best value. Our Fixed Rate Pricing plans offer the ability to run as many simulations projects as you need over a pre-selected period of time for one budget-friendly price. Simply select the number of machines and the pre-set time option to match your run-time needs. Run as many simulations as you need during your fixed-rate time selection.
