Virtualisation Platform

Users and user groups from Masaryk University have available two types of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) services. In addition to the MetaCentrum Cloud environment built on OpenStack software, it is also a Virtualization platform using VMware vSphere. Each of the services is focused on a different type of usage. More information on suitability for a specific example of usage is available at:

Cloud and Complex Computing

Masaryk University’s computing infrastructure is secured primarily by the CERIT-SC centre (CERIT Scientific Cloud), which maintains more than 4800 cores and 4 PB of storage.

CERIT-SC is a part of the National Grid Infrastructure (NGI) MetaCentrum, an activity of the CESNET association.

Currently, the original cloud services are migrating to a single platform. You can find the new environment under the MetaCloud/OpenStack link.
