CSIT Cloud directly supports research related to Big Data as well as data-intensive parallel computing.

A could computing environment has been designed with initial 26 computing nodes. The cloud computing nodes are placed in a specific designated room (Bldg42, Room108) at UDC. UDC Open Cloud Development Strategic Plan focuses on expanding the scale of the cloud computing environment by continously adding more computing nodes.

With the developed cloud computing environment and its facility, UDC became a contributing member at SURAgrid on March 28, 2011. SURAgrid is a consortium of organizations collaborating and combining resources to help and create a distributed high performance computing (HPC) infrastructure.
