Among these servers, a number of specific environments are available to scientific users, including, for example, a Dell general purpose computing server running on Linux on which scientific software is installed as well as basic tools (compilers, editors, word processors, etc.) that allow various developments to be made, a server dedicated to SAS software running on Linux, etc.

  • For scientific calculations requiring high processing power, two parallel computing clusters are dedicated to intensive computing ( "NIC3" and "NIC4" machines).
  • A general purpose computing server, running on Linux; see "The Linux general purpose computing server below under the heading "Services";
  • A server dedicated to SAS software, running on Linux; see "The server dedicated to SAS software" below under the heading "Services";
  • A "ClusterVision" parallel computing server, with 1296 cores, running on LINUX, and dedicated specifically to intensive computing (NIC); see "The "ClusterVision" parallel computing server" below under the heading "Services".
