SCC at KIT contributes to the European Open Science Cloud

The EU funds building a pan-European cloud of services for the exchange, use and reuse of research data. The SCC directs the work package "Federation and collaborative services", which focuses on IT service management.

EOSC Service Management is designed to integrate cloud infrastructures and software into manageable, federal IT services.

With the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), a Europe-wide cloud platform has emerged at the beginning of the year on which researchers can store, share, use and reuse research data. Since scientific datasets are sometimes huge, it is necessary to use special Know-How for building and managing the Big Data Cloud infrastructure. The Scientific Computing Center of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) contributes its many years of expertise in the management of large amounts of data in several places.

In particular, the KIT is responsible for IT service management, i. e. the development of a service catalogue, support processes and tools as well as a service desk, the central contact point for user inquiries.

The associated work package Federation and collaborative Services is directed by the SCC. "We have certified experts and more than 15 years of expertise in the development, construction and operation of federal IT infrastructures and services. We are pleased and proud to have been asked to lead this important work package in the EOSC-hub project," says Professor Achim Streit, Director of SCC.
