The CSC Cloud service is targeted for High Performance Computing (HPC), allowing customers to run virtual machines with exclusive access to up to 16 cores. This service includes cPouta and ePouta.
The upcoming de.NBI cloud will provide an analytics infrastructure for bioinformatics. It will consist of computing power and storage capacity as well as flexible workflows and analysis tools.
|ELIXIR PT Computing Services||
A computational platform for biological data based on open cloud services.
This is an OpenStack platform co-located with EMBL-EBI’s services and data resources. Access to the Embassy Cloud is available for researchers outside EMBL if they have a collaboration with staff at EMBL.

IFB is currently setting up a federation of Clouds, with a unique entry point, based on a network of distributed regional IT facilities structured around a large national IT facility. The distributed nature of the federation is designed to facilitate data flows (regional PFs are the network entry points in their regions).
On this network, IFB will develop a distributed storage system (based on proven techniques: iRODS, S3 object storage, etc.) to allow sharing of public data collections and easy transfer of users’ data. This federation includes hardware (CPU, disks, RAM, network) but must also allow an easy access to the many collections of data used in Life Sciences and the numerous bioinformatics tools required to analyse the Life Science data (by providing a national portfolio of bioinformatics images).
To summarize, IFB is setting up a High Throughput Computing infrastructure focusing on Life Science data sharing, analysis and integration that is complementary to the national High Performance Computing centres that mainly emphasize computing.
sciCORE provides a high-performance computing infrastructure, large-scale storage resources, scientific software and databases, server infrastructures and user support. It also provides expertise to scientific research groups.
Vital-IT supports and collaborates with life scientists in Switzerland and beyond. It provides expertise, training and maintains a high-performance computing (HPC) and storage infrastructure.
