Services for scientists
Benutzerkonto (Account, Passwort)
Through the Guest and Partner Administration (GuP), the organizational units of KIT can provide their partners with the accounts and services necessary for cooperation. The GuP is an application in the SAP Web Portal.
Benutzerkonto (Account, Passwort)
For all KIT employees, the KIT user account, also known as the KIT account, is the basis for many IT services that users in the KIT network require. 
It provides access to systems and services and is generally used as a "login" in the KIT environment.
Daten (Speichern, Teilen, Verwalten)
Backup & Archive
This service provides data backup and long-term data storage (archiving) for all KIT employees.
Daten (Speichern, Teilen, Verwalten)
This service provides an organizational unit of the KIT (OE) with a highly available and central data repository. This is called the OU directory.
Daten (Speichern, Teilen, Verwalten)
This service provides every KIT employee with a KIT account with a high availability and central data repository for saving personal data and documents. In the following, this is also described as the **personal directory**.
The **personal directory** can **NOT** be shared with other users. It is independent of the OU affiliation of a KIT employee, i.e. the access does not change when the employee changes to another OU.
Daten (Speichern, Teilen, Verwalten)
The service "LSDF Online Storage" offers users of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology access to a data storage which is intended in particular for the storage of scientific measurement data and simulation results of data-intensive scientific disciplines. The LSDF Online Storage is operated by Steinbuch Centre for Computing. Access is ensured via standard protocols.

The data is backed up and protected in a state-of-the-art manner. The service is not suitable for storing personal data.

Daten (Speichern, Teilen, Verwalten)
The RDM@KIT service team sees itself as a partner of science and research. We support you at KIT with services for sustainable research data management, starting with the application of scientific projects up to publication and archiving.
Daten (Speichern, Teilen, Verwalten)
CPLEX, Origin Pro, SAS, SPSS
Daten (Speichern, Teilen, Verwalten)
Der Landesdienst bwDataArchive bietet eine Lösung zur langfristigen Datenarchivierung, die insbesondere für Beschäftigte von Universitäten und öffentlichen Forschungseinrichtungen aus Baden-Württemberg zur Verfügung gestellt wird. Die Datenarchivierung erfolgt am Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) und umfasst eine verlässliche Speicherung auch großer Datenbestände für einen Zeitraum von zehn oder mehr Jahren. Der Dienst ermöglicht eine qualifizierte Umsetzung der Empfehlungen der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) zur Sicherung und Aufbewahrung von Forschungsdaten.
Grid Computing
This service offers the complete Grid related User Support infrastructure of the EGI and WLCG project.
Grid Computing
The GridKa-CA service delivers X.509 certificates for persons, hosts, services and robots, belonging to institutes located in Germany, involved in national and international Grid projects, for authentication purposes to access national and international Grid resources.
Grid Computing
The Computing Element (CE) is running computing jobs at GridKa.
Grid Computing
At the moment the external monitoring of our Tier-1 centre is done with CERN's Service Availability Monitoring (SAM). SAM is a framework for the monitoring of production and pre-production grid sites.
High Performance Computing
SCC gives KIT users access to High Performance Computing (HPC) and Data Intensive Computing (DIC) infrastructures. SCC itself operates several computer systems (bwUniCluster, ForHLR) for different user groups. In addition, KIT scientists can use the bwForCluster within the framework of the bwHPC federation. The SCC also advises on applications for computing time on supra-regional high-performance computers (Tier-2), such as the ForHLR, or on the national supercomputers (Tier-1) of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (JSC, HLRS, LRZ).
High Performance Computing
Compilers and tools for software development.
High Performance Computing
Consulting / Support for technical-scientific applications at KIT
* CAE applications
* Statistical applications
* Scientific word processing
* Computer algebra systems
* Subroutine libraries
High Performance Computing
Rechner- und Projektionsinfrastruktur zur Visualisierung in wissenschaftlichen Projekten, wie z.B. die Analyse von Messdaten, Veranschaulichung von Computersimulationen im Bereich Computational Fluid Dynamics oder in der computergestützten Produktentwicklung am Campus Nord.
Server & Systeme (VM, Hosting, Housing)
Der Landesdienst bwCloud SCOPE stellt als Clouddienst virtualisierte Server- und Anwendungsinfrastruktur für Mitarbeiter, Wissenschaftler und Studierende der Universitäten und Hochschulen in Baden-Württemberg bereit.
In der bwCloud können pro Betriebsstandort über 1.000 virtuelle Maschinen mit individuellem Betriebssystem und Software betrieben werden. Der Dienst läuft auf dedizierten Serversystemen an den vier Betriebsstandorten Mannheim, Ulm, Freiburg und Karlsruhe - das sind insgesamt also mindestens 4.000 virtuelle Maschinen zum verteilten Betrieb von Servern und Anwendungen. Genug Ressourcen für zahlreiche Projekte.
Webauftritte (Homepage, Domain)
This service provides applications for KIT employees via a portal. Many of the functions originally available here are now accessible via the SCC self-service portal my.scc.kit.edu.
Zusammenarbeit (Groupware)
Video conferencing service, e.g. to browse documents online with research colleagues or project partners or to hold courses with a partner institute at a national or international level.
