Managed Cluster Service

Currently (November 2022) the Department has 4 computers which are run by the University Information Service (UIS) called the Managed Cluster Service or Desktop Services and are accessible to anyone with a Raven account. The future of the MCS is uncertain. These 4 machines may be withdrawn in the near future.

The MCS is for the use of all staff and students of the Department, and provides networked PCs running a  range of software, together with printers. It is also possible to login remotely from any Internet-connected computer to the MCS Linux service.
