About us

NCL is a national shared infrastructure that provides computing resources, repeatable and controllable experimentation environments, as well as application services. The infrastructure includes a cluster of 300 nodes that provides a wide range of provisioning mechanisms, security data and security services. NCL aims to provide a platform that fosters and encourages collaboration among researchers in academia, government bodies and the industry.


The software stack that manages the NCL infrastructure is based on DETERLab, which is a security and education-enhanced version of Emulab. NCL is also collaborating with the DETERLab team on testbed research.


The laboratory is funded by the National Research Foundation (NRF) since November 2015.
