The Computing Services of MPCDF

    The MPCDF provides facilities for high-performance computing (HPC), capacity computing (Linux clusters) and remote visualization and supports general-purpose and dedicated systems. A list of the miscellaneous computing systems can be found below, a detailed description can be obtained following the links.

    The operating systems at the MPCDF are of the UNIX-type. Users login to one of the gateway machines via ssh. From the gateway machines the login nodes of all compute facilities can be accessed.

    Available software can be found here.

    Personal settings (e.g. passwords) can be customized in section userspace/mympcdf (login required).

    General support requests can be addressed to the  helpdesk.

    Dedicated, high-level application support, e.g. for HPC code development and optimization, and machine-learning projects is offered to all Max-Planck researchers and their collaboration partners.
