Servers and Containers as a Service

The SCIGNE platform offers an IaaS cloud computing service based on OpenStack. This service allows researchers to:

  • to deploy compute servers with the operating system of their choice;
  • deploy a cluster of containers orchestrated by Kubernetes automatically;
  • use GPUs within these servers or containers.

This infrastructure consists of 1024 CPUs, 4 TB of RAM, 15 GPUs and 500 TB of storage. The availability of this service is 99%.

It is accessible through the OpenStack command line client or the OpenStack Horizon Dashboard.

This cloud is federated with the France Grilles Cloud, the EGI Federated Cloud and the IFB Cloud.
