The distinguishing characteristic of the Fenix Infrastructure and its services is that data repositories and scalable supercomputing systems will be in close proximity and well integrated.
Below is a short description of all available Fenix services for research communities and users. Click on each title for more details on the specific services.
Interactive Computing Services
Quick access to single compute servers to analyse and visualise data interactively, or to connect to running simulations, which are using the scalable computing services.
Scalable Computing Services
Massively parallel HPC systems that are suitable for highly parallel brain simulations or for high-throughput data analysis tasks.
Virtual Machine Services
Service for deploying virtual machines (VMs) in a stable and controlled environment that is, for example, suitable for deploying platform services like the EBRAINS Collaboratory, image services or neuromorphic computing front-end services.
Active Data Repositories
Site-local data repositories close to computational and/or visualization resources that are used for storing temporary replicas of data sets. In the near future they will typically be realised using parallel file systems.
Archival Data Repositories
Federated data storage, optimized for capacity, reliability and availability that is used for long-term storage of large data sets which cannot be easily regenerated. These data stores allow the sharing of data with other researchers inside and outside of EBRAINS.
A list of all available and planned e-infrastructure services can be found on the Fenix website.
