2.5 Virtual Machine Policies

  • Policies related to all Virtual Machine users
    • Requests for Virtual Machines must be made by the PI on the sponsored research project. 
    • PIs requesting VMs will need to sign a Faculty Resource User Agreement (FRUA)   prior to provisioning nodes. This agreement outlines the terms of support. If there are any questions or concerns with any of the terms of this agreement, please contact CHPC to discuss.
    • In addition to the FRUA mentioned above, PI's may be asked to sign an additional agreement for specific project(s), detailing  the unique requirements and/or specialized system support needed for the VMs provisioned for the project. This is particularly important in the Protected Environment. 
  • Protected Environment (PE) VM Farm Policies
    • Only CHPC Staff system administrators will have root to VMs in the protected environment. 
    • Only sponsored research projects with HIPAA/PHI or other specific data restrictions will be provisioned in the PE.
