The Steinbuch Centre for Computing (SCC) is KIT’s information technology center and ranks among the largest and most powerful scientific computing centers in Europe. SCC provides central infrastructure and IT services to students and researchers coupled with a modern IT service center support for the institutes as well as conducts its own research and development projects, aimed at innovating and optimizing its IT services for the scientific community.
“As a world-class education and research institution, we need highly reliable technology to support daily operations and our students, staff, and researchers’ work. We chose Oracle for its highly stable operating capabilities,” said Klaus Scheibenberger, head of Systems and Servers Department, Steinbuch Centre for Computing, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
