Faculty Systems

Faculty have access to two sets of systems, which we call “faculty” and “research.” Grad students sponsored by faculty also have access to the research cluster.

The faculty system  is a combination of faculty servers known faculty.cs  (consisting of constance.cs and porthos.cs) and faculty Linux desktops.  These machines are running Centos 7.x.

Home directories /fac/users/ on faculty systems are shared with home directories of Linux-based faculty desktops. The research cluster has separate home directories /res/users/.

Here’s a link to the profile of systems in the Faculty cluster. This list is updated daily.

IMPORTANT: You must have an account on each system before you can use it. See Getting Started page for more details about using our resource
