2012 - 2013

The aim of the NTH (Niedersachsen Institutes of Technology) funded research project "Forschungs-und Kollaborationsinfrastruktur für die NTH" FLINTH was to improve the research infrastructure of the NTH. The Universities of Braunschweig, Clausthal and Hannover took part in this project. It was split up into tree major areas. A cooperation platform was set upv to achieve efficient workflows within large scaled distributed research project of the NTH. A compute cloud was provided to allow the flexible use of computation resources even for small problems. And finally a storage cloud was established to share large amounts of data across distributed parts of NTH research projects. Our research group was active in building up a cooperation platform including multiple asynchronous and synchronous channels.
