SRCE HTC Cloud service is based on cloud computing, on-demand availability of computer system resources, especially computing power and data storage (cloud storage), without direct active management by the user. HTC Cloud is based on open systems:
- Openstack – set of software tools for building and managing cloud computing platforms
- Ceph – distributed object store and file system
HTC Cloud provides flexibility in using and running various operating systems and applications, primarily those that require significant computing resources to achieve their goals. Such flexibility was not possible in traditional computing environments such as clusters or grid.
At the moment, HTC Cloud users have at their disposal a total of 2.400 virtual processor cores, 600 processor cores and 150 TB data space.
