The CC-IN2P3 provides hosting for more than 300 websites, a technical hub and a high added value consultancy service for IN2P3 laboratories.

The website hosting service is intended primarily for IN2P3 units to answer the needs of content broadcasting for scientific projects and collaborations, where research teams are involved. Hosted sites are very diverse in nature: experiments, events or institution homepages.

On demand virtual machines

The CC-IN2P3’s virtual machine hosting service makes it possible to provision servers on demand. This service grants access to numerous types of machines and operating systems, controlled resources, cloud management and rich programmable interfaces compatible with Nova and EC2.

Thanks to the above, the service offers flexible access to resources (on-demand provisioning, privilege administration, etc.) and high availability to IN2P3 collaborators.

IT equipment

The CC-IN2P3’s IT rooms benefit from optimal conditions in terms of electricity and air conditioning for its hosting computer equipment.

The CC-IN2P3 plays a central part of the national infrastructure by hosting a regional node (RN) for RENATER, providing a very high-speed connection to all French universities and other research bodies. It also hosts points of presence for the AMPLIVIA network (high-speed network for the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region) and LyRES (Lyon University Metropolitan Network). In addition, the CC-IN2P3 hosts Lyonix/Rezopole, the leading exchange point for web traffic in Lyon and surroundings.

These features allows the CC-IN2P3 to host servers for the IT Service Department and the Direct Scientific Communication Centre for the CNRS, the University of Lyon and the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes regional authority.
