SNIC-SENS

High-performance computing resources for analyzing sensitive data in Sweden

SNIC-SENS is a SNIC project with the goals:

  • To set up and maintain an eInfrastructure for handling sensitive personal data at the National Genomics Infrastructure, NGI. Resources for this includes:
    • NGI production cluster - Irma
    • NGI production cluster storage - Lupus
    • NGI data delivery - Grus
  • To establish and maintain high-performance and data-intensive computational resources within SNIC for researchers that analyze sensitive personal data from large-scale molecular experiments. Resources for this includes:
    • Research cluster - Bianca
    • Research cluster storage - Castor

Project partners are SNIC, UPPMAX, PDC, NGI, and Science for Life Laboratory.

The project is funded by the Swedish Research Council, the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, Science for Life Laboratory, and Uppsala University.

Project owner: Ann-Charlotte Sonnhammer, SNIC

Team leader: Peter Ankerstål, UPPMAX

Bianca was put into production on 2017-04-07
