Grid'5000 is a large-scale and versatile testbed for experiment-driven research in all areas of computer science, with a focus on parallel and distributed computing including Cloud, HPC and Big Data.

Key features:

  • provides access to a large amount of resources: 12000 cores, 800 compute-nodes grouped in homogeneous clusters, and featuring various technologies: GPU, SSD, NVMe, 10G Ethernet, Infiniband, Omnipath
  • highly reconfigurable and controllable: researchers can experiment with a fully customized software stack thanks to bare-metal deployment features, and can isolate their experiment at the networking layer
  • advanced monitoring and measurement features for traces collection of networking and power consumption, providing a deep understanding of experiments
  • designed to support Open Science and reproducible research, with full traceability of infrastructure and software changes on the testbed
  • a vibrant community of 500+ users supported by a solid technical team
