The computing centre was founded in 2000 and comprises three platforms: a HPC/HTC cluster, an OpenStack cloud, and storage for scientific data. The computing resources are provided to the University of Lille academic community and count about 370 active users working on chemistry, mechanics, bioinformatics, humanities and social sciences, computer science research, and many others. UNIV-LILLE cloud is integrated in France Grilles, the national e-Infrastructure for research in France.
