Dos and don'ts
  • Please change the windows user password once you are logged in.
  • We will not be responsible for any data loss on the academy server. The purpose of these servers is learning. Please contact us if you want to create a production environment. There are much more powerful machines available.
  • Treat the server like your own hardware. You have full system access which means if you destroy your Windows operating system you will be responsible.
How is time calculated?
  • You can monitor your time consumption anytime, in the portal.
  • You are charged by the hour, with each started hour being due. It means that you will be charged 2 hours if your session lasts 1 hour and 1 minute.
  • The timer stops when the server is switched off. If you leave your server on, you will be charged as if you were using it.
  • A reboot will not affect the underlying usage counter.
I cannot find my projects when I log in!
  • NVME storage is temporay. This means after you shutdown the server all data on this drive will be deleted: don't forget to save your data before shutting down.
What are the limits?
    • Your account is valid for a certain number of days after the first activation. After this, you will need to purchase more hours or your data will be deleted.
    • There is a limit of data upload from the Server to the outside world. This means for example downloading your project data from the server to your machine.
The limits depend on the number of hours purchased I want to buy more than 50 hours!
