Gateway to MSI’s interactive computing options

What is the Interactive Computer Cluster?

The Interactive Computer Cluster acts as a gateway to MSI’s interactive computing options. It is MSI smallest cluster and has very limited resources to accommodate long, compute intensive workflows. Instead, it is designed to run applications that have Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) or interactive terminal interfaces such as Ansys, Pymol, Rstudio, IPython, and MATLAB.
