Since the start of 2018, researchers who use SWITCH’s cloud services for their Swiss National Science Foundation-funded projects have been able to pass on the full costs to the SNSF. Cloud-based IT infrastructure enables researchers to concentrate fully on their core tasks.
SWITCH sees itself as part of the university community. Its longstanding, trusting and fair collaboration with this community has produced services, from which researchers can also benefit. Researchers often handle large quantities of data, and need to be able to do so securely and reliably. SWITCHengines’ scalable computing and storage services offer a solution that fulfils these requirements.
