The systems group maintains several general purpose compute servers for teaching and research.
homework.eecs.tufts.edu is a cluster of virtual machines setup just like computers used in most classrooms. It is intended for code that is not memory or CPU intensive.
white-hole and black-hole are large compute servers that are used mostly for research purposes. Both have a large number of CPU cores and large amounts of RAM.
red-giant is our newest compute server. It is roughly the same size as both white-hole and black-hole, but is running RHEL 7 instead of RHEL 6.
VMware – EECS systems offers custom virtual machines for Faculty and Graduate needs. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or requests.
We understand that many of your simulations/programs/etc may require the creation/use of large amounts of data.
For these purposes, we have allocated a /data partition on each of the aforementioned compute servers. Data placed in this location will remain here unless untouched for a period of 30 days, which after it is permanently deleted. Please use this space as needed, but remember that it is shared space for all users.
