SWITCH SCALE project

A scalable and cost-efficient cloud infrastructure for the Swiss academic community

Cloud services for the Swiss Universities

The SWITCH SCALE project's goal was to create a scalable and cost-efficient Cloud infrastructure and services on top of it. The project builds infrastructure including the following services for the SWITCH community:

  • Self-service Virtual Machines and cloud storage (SWITCHengines)
  • Academic Software as a Service (R-Studio appliance on SWITCHengines)
  • Training for the services

The project has ended in July 2015 and was succeeded by the SCALE-UP project which builds on the results of SCALE.

The project has been promoted by theĀ SUC P-2 program. Substantial parts of it receive a funding from swissuniversities.
