Tools for WorkingOnServers at UiO.

Processing large datasets and running models for geosciences will likely require that you work on the command line of a server and not on your laptop. It's important to learn how to do this efficiently so that you don't feel that it restricts where you can work from. In fact, it's generally the opposite. Once you learn how to use a server well, you will find it much easier to work from anywhere! All you need is an internet connection.

In this section, we give you an overview of UIO computing systems and how to set-up your environment (module package) and cover some tips for connecting via ssh, setting up your own laptop so it is 'as if' you are working locally, and other nice tricks for staying productive in a server-based environment.
