Our Computing infrastructure
We provide the MRC WIMM with a high performance computing platform, offering researchers efficient ways to store, analyse, collaborate and publish large data sets. In addition, expert staff install complex bioinformatics packages that can be used by all researchers and provide help and advice in their usage.
The CCB cluster is a Linux CentOS 7 based environment which uses the open-source Slurm management system to schedule jobs:
|Nodes||Cores each||RAM each|
This core high-throughput analysis cluster is accessed via three login nodes and is surrounded by supporting infrastructure including a range of web and application servers, virtual machine hosting, and backup storage.
