The Estonian Scientific Computing Infrastructure (ETAIS) was established in 2011 to increase the competitiveness of Estonian R&D in computing and data-intensive fields through the provision of a modern computing infrastructure. The common infrastructure for compute clusters, storage, and support allows researchers to collaborate together in projects on a local level as well as on an international level. ETAIS is the distributed infrastructure which is managed by a consortia of four national organisations: the University of Tartu, Tallinn University of Technology, the National Institute of Chemical Biology and Physics, the Information Technology Foundation for Education (formerly the Estonian Education and Research Network (EENet)).
RI research services
Access to computing resources through a queuing system; the installation of scientific software; support for preparing and submitting computing jobs.
Rapid access to data: support in terms of data management.
