Compute Servers

  • Use SSH or use X2Go for a desktop environment.

  • Scratch files for computational jobs can be stored in /egr/scratch. /egr/scratch is available from all central login and compute servers. Files or directories more than 7 days old on /egr/scratch are removed because scratch space is temporary space. /egr/scratch is never backed up. Files needed for long-term usage or archives should be stored in another directory that is backed up, such as /home or /egr/research.


X2Go is an implementation of NX remote desktop protocol, you can use it to remotely access the graphical desktop of our Linux compute servers. X2Go can be installed on Linux, Windows, or MacOS.
