Yottabyte Research Cloud (YBRC) is no longer available. The YBRC service has been migrated to the Secure Enclave Service.
YBRC was a partnership between Information and Technology Services (ITS) and Yottabyte/Verge.io from 2016 to 2022 that provided U-M researchers with high-performance, secure, and flexible computing environments enabling the analysis of sensitive data sets restricted by federal privacy laws, proprietary access agreements, or confidentiality requirements.
- Researcher workloads have evolved and need consistently tuned performance across the subsystems of the enclave, which became more difficult as the YBRC hardware aged
- The initial funding for YBRC was provided, in part, by a grant that was coming to an end from the company behind the Yottabyte software
- ITS currently offers a virtual server environment called MiServer for non-sensitive data
