Access to HPC
To access the HPC systems at your institution, you generally need an account which your HPC authority would create for you.
Once you have obtained an account, the only method available to connect to the HPC is to use a secure shell (
ssh) client, no matter what operating system you are using. However, note that HPC facilities around the work is generally Linux-based because that makes the building cost cheaper!
Accessing HPC systems on campus
To connect to the HPC from a Linux based computer, open a terminal window and simply type
ssh hpc-login-node-name and then press enter.
