Centre CERIT-SC (CERIT Scientific Cloud) is a national centre operating computing and data storage experimental infrastructure for research and development.

CERIT-SC is a successor of Supercomputing Centre Brno (SCB) founded in 1994 as the part of the Institute of Computer Science of the Masaryk University.

Research and development activities focus on two areas:

  • E-infrastructure research and development is primarily driven by the requirements of the e-infrastructure evolution and its flexible advanced use.
  • Research collaborations with scientific communities from many scientific areas. CERIT-SC users do not act only as service consumers, but mainly as partners in research and production application of its results. CERIT-SC is usually responsible for the e-infrastructure and data processing related part of the research, thus allowing researchers and their teams to focus on and progress more quickly with their own research. 

Centre CERIT-SC tightly cooperates with the Faculty of Informatics as well as other parts of the Masaryk University and other universities. It targets specifically into integrating master and graduate students. PhD study consultants work in the centre, helping students to integrade tightly into relevant research areas, their results immediately applied in the centre itself as well as other places.

Centre CERIT-SC is a part of the national e-infrastructure recognized in the Roadmap of Large Infrastructures for Research, Experimental Development and Innovation of the Czech Republic, complementary to the CESNET association and IT4Innovations supercomputing centre, with emphasis on experimental ("leading edge" and even disruptive) use of the e-infrastructure and focus to research in cooperation with other scientific communities.
