Regularly, VSC users express the need for a more flexible environment with tailor-made software packages, interactive data analysis tools, workflow portals, data visualization or specific pre- and post processing packages.
The VSC Cloud component meets these requests by enabling ‘on-demand’ resources in a more flexible and cloud-like manner. Based on OpenStack, VSC Cloud offers Infrastructure as a Service capability for power users that can deploy resources such as virtual machines and storage systems, and adapt these to their scientific use case. The VSC Cloud component also offers a number of high-level services through a ready-to-use catalog of templates that makes it easy to set up databases or web servers.
