3 About SARA SARA is an independent not-for-profit company delivering a full service package in the areas of highperformance computing & networking, visualization and virtual reality, data storage, grid services and hosting SARA employs ~100 fte s First supercomputer in The Netherlands at SARA in 1984 (Control Data CYBER 205) First CAVE in Europe in 1997

4 SARA mission The mission of SARA is two-fold: Providing high-performance computing, -networking and -visualization not-for-profit services to geographically dispersed education and research communities across The Netherlands sharing data, information and computation resources (National e- Science Support & Grid Service Center) Offering commercial ICT services based on the expertise built in the high-end activities Commercial Services will (slowly) be moved to new BV: VANCIS BV from April 2008 VANCIS and SARA: One single Holding

5 SARA organization SARA is divided into three business units: High Performance Computing and Visualization facilitating large-scale simulations mass-storage grid services visualization and data-analysis High Performance Networking management of SURFnet6 and NetherLight design and management of regional networks network research ICT services managed hosting on-demand services co-location ASP services
