On the sustainability of large-scale computer science testbeds: the Grid'5000 case

Abstract : In this position paper, we look at the financial sustainability of Grid'5000. The duration of the project (over 12 years) owes more to successive investment decisions and continued support rather than from a well understood and operated business model generating enough revenue to covers costs and investments. In this paper, we will give an overview of a typical cost structure for a large-scale testbed, we summarize with a few statements our views and develop pros and cons of a few funding sources. The way Grid'5000 is funded is detailed, before giving some data used to compute the unit cost for Grid'5000 resources.
