Links to documentation for our new cluster

In May/June 2024 we will be retiring our old Jalapeno cluster and replacing it with our new SLURM and Open OnDemand based compute cluster. This service is very similar to that offered by BMRC, so if you have used their system you should be able to quickly get started on our equivalent.

Please be aware, that we no longer provide remote X11 access to this cluster, all graphical access is now via Open OnDemand.

Useful documentation follows.
