The iC1 provides computing services to its more than 40 members and partners since nearly 20 years ago, which serves as a tool to carry out their research work.
PROTEUS, the so called service, comprises a set of computers connected by high-speed network running on GNU / Linux, which is known as Beowulf cluster. This architecture is particularly flexible for tasks of various kinds, and greatly facilitates maintenance.

Some of the most relevant data about PROTEUS are:
it works 365×24 (every day of the year)
its use load is above 80% with frequent peaks 100%
as of February 2015, 750,000 jobs that have been run in it and they have consumed about 17.5 million hours of CPU (since July 2012)
technical features: ~ 13 TeraFLOPs, 2.8 Terabytes RAM, 46 terabytes HDD, 1,1k cores
Currently, we are working in an upgrade process to enhance the performance of distributed programs.
