Computing centre

Computing centre of the Institute of Physics manages large scale computing clusters (hundreds multi-core nodes and hundreds TB of disk space). These clusters are available for local users and via the gLite grid middleware also to members of big international collaborations like LHC experiments ATLAS and ALICE or astroparticle project Pierre Auger Observatory. Computers from the LUNA project (in Czech) can be used by researchers and students of academic institutions in the Czech Republic. Detailed information can be found on the Czech web pages.
