The Baden-Württemberg Cloud
The Baden-Württemberg Cloud (bwCloud) provides virtual machines (servers) for members of science- and research institutions in Baden-Württemberg (e.g. students and staff-members) much like Amazon’s EC2. Building on the openstack-platform the infrastructure is currently operated by four sites in Baden-Württemberg: the Universities of Mannheim, Karlsruhe, Ulm and Freiburg.
The new bwCloud (now called "bwCloud SCOPE") has six times as many compute nodes - for more information on bwCloud hardware SCOPE, see Infrastruktur bwCloud SCOPE. This will give us enough hardware to continue to grow and to provide resources to our users!
