With the HPC Cloud facility, SURFsara offers self-service, dynamically scalable and fully configurable HPC systems to the Dutch academic community. Users have, for example, a free choice of operating system and software.
The HPC Cloud offers full control over a HPC cluster, with fast CPUs and high memory nodes and it is possible to attach terabytes of local storage to a compute node. Because of this flexibility, users can fully tailor the system for a particular application. Long-running and small compute jobs are equally welcome. Additionally, the system facilitates collaboration: users can share control over their virtual private HPC cluster with other users and share processing time, data and results. A portal with wiki, fora, repositories, issue system, etc. is offered for collaboration projects as well.
