Faculty of Science University of South Bohemia (USB) maintain computational cluster that is also a part of MetaCentrum infrastructure. Cluster is mainly used for difficult computations and the most efficient usage is by parallel applications. Students or employees of USB can use the cluster or other resources from MetaCentrum.

If you want to use cluster for your computations, go through following steps (with problems ask the Contact):

  1. find version of your application for linux operating system (binary or source code)
  2. register user account in MetaCentrum
  3. learn basic work under linux
  4. enjoy thousands of cores for computation

1. Linux applications

Cluster works on 64-bits Debian linux operating system (see Configuration). You need to have your application in linux compiled binaries or as source code format. Also is possible that your applications is in MetaCentrum yet (see Software in MetaCentrum).
