The UPT launched, starting with May of this year, the implementation of the CloudPUTing project,  High Performance Cloud Platform at Politehnica University of Timișoara, which has as main result the creation of a heterogeneous HPC cloud node dedicated to research projects.

The aim of the project is to increase the research and innovation capacity of UPT by creating an energy efficient, private cloud based on open technologies, attached to national and international networks of research cloud infrastructures, with applicability in collection, storage, analysis, distribution and the protection of the heterogeneous data masses, produced within the research and innovation initiatives carried out in the western region of Romania.

The main and direct target group of the project consists of all UPT researchers and PhD students, regardless of the research field in which they operate, who can benefit from the services provided by tools specific to the CTI field, provided in the form of centralized computing services. , storage and productivity.

The project has an implementation duration of 2 years, benefiting from a budget of 4,051,241 LEI, of which 3,832,506 LEI are non-reimbursable funds financed by the program POC / 398/1-Development of networks of R&D centers, coordinated at national level and connected to European and international networks and ensuring researchers' access to European and international scientific publications and databases.
