Our infrastructures


eSSENCE are connected with several infrastructures to enable our research.

The National Academic Infrastructure for Supercomputing in Sweden

NAISS is the new infrastructure organization for high-performance computing, storage, and data services for academic users in Sweden. NAISS is hosted by Linköping University but acts independently with a national perspective and responsibility. NAISS main funding is provided by the Swedish Research council (VR) while the user support, organized in a decentralized branch-structure, is built up in partnership with several Swedish universities.


Uppsala Multidisciplinary Centre for Advanced Computational Science

UPPMAX is hosted by the Department of Information Technology, Faculty of Science and Technology at Uppsala University and is one of the six centra in SNIC. UPPMAX is also part of the SweGrid national grid.

Funding comes from SNIC, the Faculty of Science and Technology, and the Faculties of Medicine and Pharmacy.

Centre for Scientific and Technical Computing at Lund University

LUNARC provides computational resources for academia in Sweden within all aspects of computational science.

The center has been in operation since 1986.  As of 2003, the services are synchronized with five other centers within the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing, SNIC.

High Performance Computing Center North

HPC2N is a national center for Scientific and Parallel Computing.

It is collaboration between universities and research institutes who form a competence network for high performance and parallel computing, grid and cloud computing, scientific visualization and virtual reality (VR), as well as effective mass-storage solutions, in Northern Sweden.
