The Grid and High Performance Computing Group (GRyCAP) from the UPV, has a very strong background in Distributed, Cloud Computing and Data Management, especially in the area of Biomedicine. GRyCAP has shared and extended its expertise through active participation in over 30 national and European R&D projects on HPC, Grid and Cloud technologies. These projects include HPCN-TTN Network, EUTIST-M and TT@MED – technology dissemination; EGEE-I, II, III, EGI- InSPIRE, EGI-ENGAGE and VENUS-C – e-infrastructures. The group took part in the International HealthGrid Association; has developed a roadmap on the use of grids in health (SHARE), and boasts a solid research line in the distributed storage of medical imaging data through the TRENCADIS platform (CVIMO project). Relevant GRyCAP expertise includes: the coordination of the cloud end-user community (27 applications, 20 coming from an Open Call) in the VENUS-C project, one of the first cloud projects to feature in the DAE ; the development of distributed and Grid-Computing platforms with Latin American countries: CyTED-GRiD, EELA and EELA-2, the EU-BrazilOpenBio Project,the EUBrazil Cloud Connect project and the EUBRA-BIGSEA project (last two coordinated by the UPV), and development of high-level middleware components for cloud infrastructures in the Spanish Codecloud and CLUVIEM project) and coordination of the Spanish Network for e-Science to implement the Spanish National Grid Initiative (NGI). The UPV also participated in the INDIGO-DATACLOUD H2020 project on cloud middleware services development.

Currently, the UPV leads the ATMOSPHERE project and participates in EOSC-Hub and Hybrid-Datacloud H2020 projects.

Services Offered

The GRyCAP mainly offers technical services for the deployment, orchestration and operation of virtual cloud infrastructures in both on-premise and public clouds. The GRyCAP has developed a set of Open Source components, offered in some cases both as components for integration in cloud distributions and as services.

Infrastructure Manager (IM)

Elastic Compute Clusters in the Cloud (EC3)

Serverless Container-aware ARchitectures (SCAR)
