SURF Services

SURFsara (cloud computing)

SURFsara offers a service that allows researchers at UvA to have a normal desktop-like setting in an online environment. The great advantage is that the online environment can be powered by processors with 2-32 cores, making it a lot faster than most normal computers. There is even an option to ‘clone’ your laptop, so that you can keep doing what you were doing, but then with a lot of computational power.
