Virtual Machines IT services
NCMM IT offers Virtual Machines IT services tailored to the needs of a scientific computing group, able to connect to both the UiO and internal network. The machines are allocated for exposing network services to the external world, as well as for testing purposes on a permanent or limited duration basis. We currently have two dedicated servers for that purpose.
-biotroll.uio.no: 40 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2650 v3 @ 2.30GHz cores with 128 Gigs of RAM and 5.1 Tbytes of diskspace.
-heraclitus.uio.no: 64 AMD EPYC 7601 32-Core Processor cores with 256 Gigs of RAM and 7.2 Tb of diskspace.
VM services on these two servers are non GPU based at the moment. You can request a VM from us. If you wish your VM to connect to:
- The public UiO network, we can only host the following Operating Systems, according to relevant University of Oslo IT Regulations:
- Windows 7/10 (64 bit)
- RedHat Enterprise Linux versions 6,7 and 8(on beta test)
- Fedora 28/29
- The internal NCMM data network can support a greater variety of Linux distributions as well as the Windows 7/10 64 or 32 bit versions. Please note that Windows XP is no longer offered as an VM option due to security/legacy system support issues.
The following Virtual Machine services are currently dedicated for NCMM production purposes.
