Virtual Research Environment (VRE)

Information about a Virtual Research Environment (VRE)

Are you an UT researcher and are you looking for flexible, efficient and scalable computing infrastructure to perform simulations / calculations? Then use the Virtual Research Environment (VRE).

Virtual Research Environment

From an inventory and discussions with researchers, it has been noted that computing infrastructure plays an increasingly important role in research. Standard workstation facilities such as a desktop or notebook are not suitable or not powerful enough for complex calculations. It is necessary to scale up to equipment with higher availability and / or computing power.

The Virtual Research Environment (VRE) offers an environment with the following characteristics:

For a detailed explanation and options, please refer to the documentation section in the VRE-Portal.

To get a better understanding and hear the experiences of the UT researchers, you can watch this introduction video on VRE.


In VRE-Portal it is possible to request and use workspaces (research environments).


Costs depend on the chosen hardware specifications. For more information see the catalog in the documentation of the VRE-Portal.


To request a workspace, you must:


For support, use the documentation in the VRE portal. For other questions and malfunctions, please contact the Service Desk ICT.
