About CERIT-SC

Infrastructure

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. 

Research and development

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.

Melasa -- development of the tool for computing of elastic properties of nano-composites

28 Apr 2020

In cooperation with the Institute of Physics of Materials ASCR we developed a Melasa tool (https://melasa.cerit-sc.cz/) for computing of elastic properties of nano-composites. Our tool implements a linear-elasticity method of M. Grimsditch and F. Nizzoli. It computes anisotropic elastic properties of coherent nano-composites using matrices of elastic...
