Virtual machine environment

  • Simulation platform (SimPF) provides a test environment of computational models via web. Users can run a trial of computational models that are registered on PFs and Neuroinformatics databases; no need to install any software on their computers. A user is asked to upload a script of a model to SimPF from a web browser. Once uploaded, SimPF assigns a virtual machine (VM) for the user from SimPF clouds, and connects the VM automatically to the user's browser via VNC (Virtual Network Computing) protocol.

Cloud simulation environment

  • We are providing MPI simulation environment for various kind of neuron and local-circuit simulation. The system consists of Portal hosts, Ganglia server and Execution hosts. Linux and open source software are used for every host and server. Anyone can easily access and use our cloud simulation environment from WWW browser. Install and configuration methods are provided by the simulation platform.
