Computing in the Parasol laboratory is primarily based on Unix-based operating systems such as Linux and Mac OS X, and Open Source software. Researchers have Fedora Linux and OS X workstations, supported by CentOS servers providing version control, project tracking, identity and configuration management, web publishing and database back ends (among other functions). Two ROCKS-based clusters are implemented for project testing and benchmarking.
We also support undergraduate and graduate instruction for our faculty members.
