Introduction to the FMRIB Cluster


​WIN@FMRIB operate a compute cluster formed from rack-mounted multi-core computers. To ensure efficient use of the hardware, tasks are distributed amongst these computers using queuing software. Compute tasks are distributed amongst the cluster in the most optimum manner with available time shared out amongst all users. This means you usually have to wait a while for your jobs to complete, but there is the potential to utilise vastly more compute resources than you would have available to you on a single computer such as your laptop or a workstation.
