MICC JINR Multifunctional
Information and Computing



The Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) Multifunctional Information and Computing Complex (MICC) project is developed within the  JINR direction of research "Networks, Computing, Computational Physics". This activity is aimed at ensuring the further development of the network, information and computing infrastructure of JINR for the research and production activities of the Institute and its Member States on the basis of state-of-the-art information technologies in accordance with the JINR Seven-Year Plan of development for 2017-2023. The MICC should meet the requirements for a modern highly performant scientific computing complex:

  • multi-functionality,
  • high performance,
  • task adapted data storage system,
  • high reliability and availability,
  • information security,
  • scalability,
  • customized software environment for different existing user groups,
  • high performance telecommunications and modern local network

The corroboration of the experience accumulated in the Laboratory of Information Technologies (LIT) with the worldwide trends in information technologies and computational physics points to the need to promote the following directions of activity and research:

Extension and improvement of the fast JINR telecommunication channels and the local area network (LAN) infrastructure

Modernization/upgrade of the MICC engineering infrastructure

Design, implementation, and upgrade of dedicated MICC components
