Our Computing infrastructure

The CCB cluster infrastructure is undergoing a process of transition from a legacy system running a CentOS 6 based environment with the Sun Grid Engine batch system to a more modern CentOS 7 based system running on new hardware.

This core high-throughput analysis cluster is surrounded by supporting infrastructure including a range of web and application servers, virtual machine hosting, and backup storage.
