BioMedIT is built for handling sensitive data. Relying on existing expertise and research infrastructure at the partnering institutions, the BioMedIT Network provides comprehensive state-of-the-art data and computing services to researchers of Swiss universities, hospitals and other research institutions.
The overarching goal of BioMedIT is to provide researchers with a fully-managed infrastructure platform for sensitive research data.
The platform is based on modern large-scale computing advances and makes state-of-the-art data analysis tools accessible to the Swiss research community. The project administration of collaborative research projects on a national scale will be further shifted from the individual BioMedIT nodes to the BioMedIT Portal, further increasing harmonization and automation level. The federated compute and storage resources provided by the BioMedIT nodes will be presented as one cloud resource to their users, with a central access and project management point (the BioMedIT Portal), a unified access method across all cloud sites (using SWITCH edu-ID) and a simple and swift project setup across the federation.
