History of the CERIT-SC Centre
Centre CERIT-SC (CERIT Scientific Cloud) is a national centre operating computing and data storage infrastructure for research and development. With its capacity of approx. 5500 CPU cores and over 4 PB storage capacity it is the largest node of Czech national e-Infrastructure MetaCentrum.
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 to meet the evolving user needs.
Besides operating its own resources, CERIT-SC enters other national and international infrastructure projects (ELIXIR CZ, H2020 West-life, ...) or closely collaborates with them (BBMRI, Cetocoen) with the responsibility of e-infrastructure design and operation.
CERIT-SC is hosted at Institute of Computer Science of Masaryk University.
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.
The EC-funded project EOSC-hub project (Integrating and managing services for the European Open Science Cloud) started on January 1st 2018, bringing together an extensive group of national and international service providers to create the Hub: a central contact point for European researchers and innovators to discover, access, use and reuse a broad...
CERIT-SC co-organized a practical workshop on CryoEM data analysis (https://www.ceitec.cz/practical-workshop-on-cryo-electron-microscopy-data-analysis-in-scipion/t3324) lead by dr. Carlos Oscar Sorzano, the principal author of one of most popular CryoEM software packages XMIPP and Scipion. Using technologies developed by the CERIT-SC team in the...
The CERIT-SC team represents Masaryk University in the consortium of a starting EU H2020 project EDIReX: European Distributed Infrastructure for Research on patient-derived cancer Xenografts. The 4 years project involves 19 partners, members of the EurOPDX consortium (http://europdx.eu), from 10 countries and will start officially in February 2018....
