Case study: University of Jyväskylä and Funet Backup

The backup pilot project jointly carried out by the University of Jyväskylä and CSC is making rapid progress. In the project, which involves the introduction of the Funet Backup service, backup copies of all material kept by the University of Jyväskylä will be produced for CSC. After that, the university will no longer have to maintain an in-house backup infrastructure. The project has been quite extensive and there is still a great deal of work to do. However, the lessons learned during the pilot project will augur well for the future.

EU General Data Protection Regulation – what should we know about it?

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was ratified in the spring of 2016 and steps are being taken to make the new regulation applicable during the two-year transition period, which ends on 25 August 2018.

Five reasons supercomputing centers love Linux

The first version of Linux (0.0.1) was launched on the Finnish University and Research Network Funet’s FTP server nearly 25 years ago. Back then, few would have guessed that the open source operating system developed by a young student, Linus Torvalds, would a quarter of a century later run on most of the mobile phones and servers as well as on the world’s most powerful supercomputers.
