Welcome to GC3, the Grid Computing Competence Center
This is the home page of the Grid Computing Competence Center. Our mission is to foster research, education, infrastructure, and usage of distributed computing at the University of Zürich. The GC3 organization and contact information are detailed on separate pages.
Our software development efforts focus on enabling users to run scientific applications on federated (Grid) and elastic (Cloud) infrastructures. In particular we provide support for the porting and execution of high-throughput use cases, involving multi-stage processing of data. Visit our software page to find out more.
The GC3 is currently engaged in several projects for shaping the future IT infrastructure for scientific applications. Please visit our collaborations page to read a complete list.
