The Center CERIT-SC operates more than 5,500 CPU cores and 4 PB of storage space.
The computing resources run Linux as the principal operating system, most of the nodes are virtualized to allow flexible assignment to batch processing or user virtual machines. OpenNebula cloud management system is used, with recent introduction of alternative OpenStack to make CERIT-SC more open to international collaborations, where this technology begins to prevail.
The computing equipment falls into several categories:
Cluster nodes and data storage are mutually interconnected with 1 Gbit/s and 10 Gbit/s Ethernet as well as local InfiniBand network with higher bandwidth (40Gbit/s) and lower latency.
Storage facilities of two types are available:
This is complemented by a wide portfolio of development tools (compilers, code analysers, debuggers), e.g., Intel and Portland C, C++ and Fortran compilers, Intel vTune, TotalView, Allinea DDT, and more than 200 modules of application software related to all scientific disciplines of the Centre’s users. In general, the software is purchased in tight cooperation with CESNET to maximise its impact.
Access to all the resources (hardware and software) and services is available for free (Open Access) to all bona fide researchers and students belonging to Czech universities and research community in general. This is analogous to the way access is granted to the academic network in the Czech Republic. This access does not need any formal pre-allocation. Important users are prioritized (their limits expanded) in an automated way, based on evaluation of their research results achieved with the use of Center's resources. Being part of the EGI infrastructures, the resources of Center CERIT-SC are also available to users from abroad. A standard way is through recommendation of a Czech research teams already using the resources (through a particular Virtual Organziation) or through joint international projects with the Center and/or its users.
