The MPCDF provides facilities for high-performance computing (HPC),
capacity computing (Linux clusters) and remote visualization and
supports general-purpose and dedicated systems.
The operating systems used at the MPCDF are Linux-based. Users login to one
of the gateway machines via
ssh. From the gateway machines
the login nodes of all compute facilities can be accessed.
Note that two-factor authentication (2FA) is enforced which is
documented as part of the FAQ.
Personal settings (e.g. passwords, login shells) can be customized at userspace/mympcdf (login required).
Information on the available software can be found here.
Dedicated, high-level application support, e.g. for HPC code development and optimization, and machine-learning projects is offered to all Max-Planck researchers and their collaboration partners.
