Computing Infrastructure


CHC provides access to and maintenance of several computing infrastructures. We can support your application for infrastructure grants and computing resources from Aarhus University or DeiC, but CHC will cover the cost of hardware or cloud computing. 

Platform-as-a-Service in UCloud

CHC manages UCloud for Aarhus University and participates in the consortium behind DeIC Interactive HPC. UCloud is the Danish interactive high performance computing platform provided by DeIC. UCloud provides an interactive digital research environment with a large app store (ex. Jupyter, RStudio, VS Code, Matlab, Voyant). The environment is built to support the needs of researchers for both computing and data management, throughout all the data life cycle.

Software-as-a-Service in Azure

Azure is a cloud computing service operated by Microsoft for application management via Microsoft-managed data centers. Azure is the cloud environment provided by AU-IT and is therefore pay-as-you-go according to AU's service agreement with Azure. Azure will often be the recommended option for applications that do not fit in UCloud. CHC can provide support for Azure cloud computing platform.

Server Management and support for specialized IT infrastructure

We provide procurement, management and support for on-premise servers at Aarhus University, GPU servers for machine learning, or alternative cloud services. Examples are application development that require specialized hardware (ex. GPU-accelerated computing) or data that have location-specific restrictions (ex. GDPR requirements for personal data).
