The following general-purpose servers are available to researchers and graduate students in the department:

The two general-purpose compute servers are anatolius and bayes: bayes is primarily for statistical computing and anatolius for everything else. Note that the processing cores on anatolius are more numerous and faster as those on bayes, so larger jobs would likely be better served on anatolius.

A Note about Running Applications

Software on the severs and on the linux workstations can be run remotely from any computer. On the linux workstations, open a terminal and enter ssh hostname and then run your application.

For more details and instructions on running the applications from your own desktop or laptop - either on campus or off campus - see How to run software remotely.

Researchers and graduate students also have access to the SHARCNET super-computing clusters at McMaster and partner instutions.
