About us

CICC is an integrated data-processing resource for all of local and     international JINR projects. It comprises an interactive farm, a few computing farms and a data storage system.

CICC purpose  is to provide users with a set of data processing and data storage resources for both local projects’ tasks like NICA, HONE, FUSION, BIOMED, and international ones like wLCG, GRID, CMS, ATLAS, ALICE, lhcb, JUNO.

Priority is currently given to experiments of the NICA projects – MPD, SPD, BM@N and  Neutrino Programme  – NOvA, DUNE, DsTau, JUNO, Daya Bay, BOREXINO, Baikal-GVD, TAIGA, DarkSide, DANSS, MONUMENT BM@N, SPD actively use the CICC computer infrastructure for data reconstruction and storage in the EOS system. The NICA MPD experiment uses the CICC system CVMFS to deploy the experiment software (software distribution). MPDRoot is used for analysis, reconstruction, simulation and DIRAC tasks for Mass Production. Storage systems(EOS,CTA) are also provided.

CICC is also for applications and services software developers.

A number of works have been carried out at JINR MLIT to apply grid technologies for processing of non-LHC experiments data:  NICA MPD, COMPASS.

A data processing management system for the COMPASS experiment on SPS has been developed and is in operation. It provides automatic data processing and management on different types of computing resources.

The Puppet client-server application is used to centrally manage OS and program configurations.

Who can use CICC:

JINR users

Attached researchers

Students practicing in JINR

Third party staff participating in collaboration

How to know if you need СIСC:

you are a JINR project participant

your tasks require computing power

you need data storage

you have to use GRID
