Calcus: the basics¶
Calcus is the computational server. It runs Linux and has a processor with 16 cores.
SSH (connecting remotely)¶
To connect to calcus, you will be using ssh (secure shell):
There are two storage pools:
HDD (7.3 TB) - your home folder lives here
SSD (1.3 TB) accessible under
/opt/ssd/- smaller but faster, this is for data actively used in analyses
/opt/ssd/ is a shared space. Please keep your files under
/opt/ssd/username and use it only for files which you really need to access quickly.
Also, please treat disk space like a finite resource!
Your files are visible to other users, but don’t worry, they cannot modify or remove them - Linux has a strong concept of users and file ownership.
