OSU has purchased dozens of Iris Indigos and distributed them through the
colleges.  Biological Sciences received 3, and paid for various upgrades
itself.  The college is now responsible for access priveledges and
charges, and last I heard the only reason they may charge is to keep
access down if the systems get too busy (makes sense - they charge only if
the systems are inadequate for the load, hopefully they'll turn around and
invest the money in MAKING them adequate).
