Regional Computing Center for Particle Physics (RCCPP) is the biggest site in the Czech Republic for simulations and data processing for particle physics experiments. It is located in the Institute of Physics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.
The computing room is cooled by two independent air-conditioning units, electrical power is backed-up by UPS (200 kVA) and diesel generator (380 kVA). The computing and storage capacity (about 200 processors and 40 TB diskspace in summer 2005) is gradually increased to meet requirements of the LHC experiments ATLAS and ALICE, which will start data taking in 2007. We use the computing capacity for large scale simulations for those experiments and simulations and data analysis for experiment D0, which is taking data at the TEVATRON collider in FERMILAB, USA.
The computing center is integrated in the grid projects LCG, EGEE and SAM and offers its capacity to all qualified members of supported projects (ATLAS, ALICE and D0). Part of its capacity is available for local users from other projects (AUGER, STAR).
