The CSU Campus Cloud was established as an outcome of the IT Consolidation Committee. The intent of the Campus Cloud service is to consolidate data centers from across campus onto a central campus solution (spanning multiple physical locations) allowing for hosting of virtual servers. It provides an opportunity to consolidate otherwise underutilized physical server hardware. The CSU Campus Cloud is a cost recovery service run by ACNS personnel who will service university server and storage needs. ACNS is responsible for the virtual hosting environment while those using the hosted service are responsible for the installation, setup, and maintenance of the operating systems and applications installed on hosted virtual servers. Customers will pay for the service based on level of usage outlined below. Both monthly and annual billing options are available. VM calculator VM Pricing Options
