RAS Cluster

Remote Application Server (RAS) Cluster

Utilizing VMware, Windows server and Parallels RAS software we've added a new research cluster. This cluster utilizes virtualized GUI statistical software like: R, Matlab and SAS to do research. All running jobs are load balanced over the entire cluster giving your jobs peak performance. You can easily start a job on your office computer then disconnect leave and at anytime reconnect to the existing running job from either another computer, laptop, tablet or even from your phone.  Running these applications requires specialized accounts on the cluster, to request one for yourself please click HERE. To request access for a group please have each member of the group make an individual request and put in the project title field, your group project name.

RAS Client Software:

Make sure to download the RAS client software for either Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, Chrome or Windows Phone. This is required to optimize your virtualized application performance.
