Newsletter from DeiC, Danish e-Infrastructure Cooperation, March 2021.

This time, you will receive the newsletter a little earlier than usual, and that is of course due to the upcoming Easter holidays.

March has been an eventful month, not least when it comes to the HPC area.

Below you can read more about the fact that the national HPC landscape has expanded considerably. DeiC national HPC Type 1 was expanded to include infrastructure at Aalborg University, just as DeiC national HPC Type 3 is now in operation.

DeiC's publication list has been updated again, so you can now search more than 1000 publications from the national HPC. Among other things, you can become much wiser about the research results from the national supercomputers and see which subject areas and universities have used the facilities.

When it comes to services, there is also interesting news.

Two more server zones have been established for the operation of Zoom, which means that the Nordic installation has developed into the world's largest "On-Premise solution". Likewise, you can read the story that the DPO service has doubled the number of appointments.

And of course a warm welcome to Marie Vachaud, who has taken up the position as an academic employee at DeiC. Marie will be involved in serving the secretariat, management and the board.

Really good 'read.

The next newsletter will be sent out in April 2021.

The newsletter is also sent by e-mail to registered subscribers. You can sign up for and unsubscribe from the newsletter by mail on this page:

Follow the work of the European Open Science Cloud in the Nordic countries

The EOSC-Nordic project is about the research having the opportunity to be based on all the data that already exists across disciplines and national borders. In this way, it must be made possible for specific research areas to dive into a huge knowledge bank and come up again with new and interesting issues based on what is already known.
