In recent years, the EEI has been tackling the implementation of a virtualization project. The project is based on the existence of very powerful computers (supercomputers) which allow several sessions to be open at the same time.
Virtualization consists in creating multiple sessions using a physical high-capacity computer, or supercomputer, and specific software. Each session is defined as a virtual machine that uses part of the resources of the supercomputer, and that contains all the software being used in the teaching activity. That is to say, each virtual machine behaves as a physical computer in which each user can work with all the available programs.
