JINR Computing Cluster was launched at the Institute of Nuclear Physics of Uzbekistan

On October 8, a Cloud Computing Cluster was launched at the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan (INR AS RUz) in cooperation with JINR. The cluster makes it possible to integrate the computer infrastructure of INP of Uzbekistan into the JINR computer network for resource demanding calculations.
The Cloud Computing Cluster at the INR AS RUz became the first in the Republic of Uzbekistan included in the distributed information and computing environment of JINR. It was created in cooperation with JINR specialists, namely the Meshcheryakov Laboratory of Information Technologies. The MLIT staff members launched the necessary servers and integrated them into the JINR computer network. The cluster will allow you to perform complex calculations even faster and provide highly accurate results for scientific research. From now on, INP AS RUz scientists will be able to request cluster capacity for scientific work and participate in calculations for such JINR megascience projects as NICA and Baikal-GVD.

“This is the first step, which will allow a large set of works to be carried out in the research directions of the Institute of Nuclear Physics AS RUz. We do not plan to stop there – other areas, such as biophysics and nuclear medicine, are ahead of us,” MLIT JINR Director Vladimir Korenkov noted in his speech.

The opening of the cloud computer cluster took place during the visit of the JINR Representatives to Uzbekistan from 4 to 8 October. The JINR delegation visited scientific and higher educational institutions in Uzbekistan as part of the visit programme. During the visit to the country, cooperation agreements were signed with the National University of Uzbekistan, the Tashkent State Technical University, and the Namangan Institute of Engineering and Technology. The JINR Representatives also took part in the Physics – 2022 Forum in Namangan on 4 and 5 October.
