STI Cluster is a service providing ready and immediately available computing resources to researchers.
It is composed of two main offers:
Hardware As A Service (HaaS)
Using this service you are booking a full bare metal server dedicated to you for a specific time span.
This a real (physical) server with quite a lot of power.
Container As A Service (CaaS)
A Kubernetes cluster is available for use via dedicated namespaces where you can run your containers (pods).
