Scientific Computing provides and supports the LMB’s core Unix systems. These systems include email, authenticating user access to the LMB network, and the provision of remotely accessible Unix machines and desktop workstations.

Computational resources at the LMB include GPU & large memory servers, together with a 3912 CPU High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster. We also have 1.8PB of data storage, split between between fast (FhGFS), economical (ZFS) and bulk (Isilon) systems.

Staff from the Scientific Computing team are available to provide advice on computational problems. A wide range of scientific software is pre-installed and readily available.
