We have a large number of linux systems available. Some are available for general use, while some are for the use of specific research groups.
spartha.spa.umn.edu(also known as
ssh.physics.umn.edu) is intended for general-purpose, lightweight, interactive computing for the entire department. Examples include reading email, or as an ssh destination/proxy. Cpu-intensive jobs should not be run on this system - we suggest using condor batch system to submit your jobs elsewhere. If any jobs on this interactive login node are found to be using high levels of CPU, memory, or other system resources, we reserve the right to cancel them immediately and without notice.
You can find a list of available systems on this page (all linux systems) or this page (servers only), along with their “cluster” (which is usually the research group or purpose they belong) to and the amount of data disk storage.
If your research group has no dedicated computational resources, there is a general-purpose pool called
phys which may be used by anybody.
