INCD - National Distributed Computing Infrastructure is a digital infrastructure supporting research, approved within the framework of the strategic research infrastructures of the Science and Technology Foundation (FCT).
INCD provides computing and storage services to the national scientific and academic community in all areas of knowledge. The infrastructure is especially dedicated to provide scientific calculation services, supporting researchers and participation in national and international projects.
INCD's technical team keeps close follow-up to the user, offering solutions tailored to the needs and specificities of each project.
INCD operates an integrated system that provides its services from multiple locations, interconnected by a state-of-the-art network infrastructure. Its services are integrated in similar international infrastructures with which it shares computing resources for the benefit of projects of national and international relevance. In this context, INCD participates in the European Grid Infrastructure (EGI), Iberian computing infrastructure (IBERGRID), the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) and the European Open Science Cloud through the EOSC-hub project.
