Virtualized server and application infrastructure in Baden-Württemberg (bwCloud SCOPE)

The service "bwCloud SCOPE" provides virtualized server and application infrastructure as a cloud service for employees and students of universities and colleges in Baden-Württemberg.

bwCloud SCOPE

Since 2019, registration for bwCloud SCOPE in the two authorization levels bwCloud-Basic and bwCloud-Extended has generally been possible at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).

bwCloud SCOPE, with its four operating sites in Mannheim, Ulm, Freiburg and Kalrsruhe, offers a capacity of over 4000 virtual machines and a storage capacity of around 2.7 petabytes.  Enough resources for numerous projects. 

At the user's request, the operating team can also set up individual usage capacities and make its own virtual networks available for the operation of the users' own infrastructure or entire user groups.

In addition, group projects with shared extended resources are easily usable.
