Norwegian Research Infrastructure Services

The Norwegian research high-performance computing and storage infrastructure is maintained by NRIS (formerly known as the Metacenter), which is a joint collaboration between UiO, UiB, NTNU, UiT, and Sigma2.

We provide valuable resources for the research communities. Not only do we provide state-of-the art compute and storage facilities, backed by support and a guarantee that your data always stays in Norway. But possibly more important is easy access to a wide selection of competences that can assist, realize or take your project to the next level.
