The VSC-infrastructure consists of two layers. The central Tier-1 infrastructure is designed to run large parallel jobs. It also contains a small accelerator testbed to experiment with upcoming technologies. The Tier-2 layer runs the smaller jobs, is spread over a number of sites, is closer to users and more strongly embedded in the campus networks. The Tier-2 clusters are also interconnected and integrated with each other.

This infrastructure is accessible to all scientific research taking place in Flemish universities and public research institutes. In some cases a small financial contribution is required. Industry can use the infrastructure for a fee to cover the costs associated with this.
