Mission and Objective

Center CERIT-SC was created through a transformation of the Supercomputing Center Brno (SCB), part of the Institute of Computer Science (ICS, ÚVT in Czech) at Masaryk University. Center CERIT-SC still stays a part of ICS, with a degree of independence corresponding to the needs and requirements of implementing an OP VaVpI project that is funding the first phase of the transformation.Center CERIT-SC is an importnat part of the national e-Infrastructure, a complex system of mutually interconnected network, computing, and storage resources and corresponding services for the zech research community. This role of the Centrum CERIT-SC is explicitly mentioned in the Roadmap of large infrastructures for research, development, and innovations in the Czech Republic. CERIT-SC resources and services offered and its research targets complement two other parts of the approved national e-Infrastructure – CESNET and the supercomputing center IT4Innovations. Center will become the largest node of the National Grid infrastructure, with emphasis on advanced services and cooperation between grid and cloud services.
