About the Data center Testlab
In order to cope with future digitization, Sweden must develop high-performance data analysis and cloud service technologies. Increased skills are needed because of a growing industry and Swedish research and innovation at the international top level requires better conditions for large-scale experiments. SICS ICE creates opportunities for the nation to develop world-leading research and increase the attractiveness of the country. Therefore, SICS Swedish ICT, in cooperation with LTU, has initiated the pilot plant to enable large-scale data research and support the digitization of Swedish industry. The first 10 racks will provide 160 servers with 2000 cores, 40 TB of main memory and up to 7 petabytes of storage.
