Globus Community


The National Integrated Cyberinfrastructure is a national initiative of the Department of Science and Innovation and implemented by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in South Africa. A key objective of NICIS is to enable South Africa to effectively participate in, and lead, large-scale global research and science projects. NICIS consists of three pillars: The Centre for High Performance Computing (CHPC) which provides massive parallel processing capabilities and services to researchers in industry and academia, the South African National Research Network (SANReN), which provides high-speed connectivity and advanced networking services, as well as the Data Intensive Research Initiative of South Africa (DIRISA), which implements services that enable sound data management practices and support efficient data-driven scientific and engineering discoveries.
