University Library System - Sitema Bibliotecario Di Ateneo (Sba)

  • The library collections, contains millions of books and ebooks, digitized images, dissertations and theses of the Ghent University Library, described in the library's catalogues or imported from external sources.

HW/SW and High Performance Computing (HPC) Resources

  • Partner of the Flemish Supercomputer Centre (VSC): 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.
