High-Throughput Computing (Condor)

This service is available to all Clemson University faculty, faculty collaborators, staff, graduate students, and undergraduate students.

Service Description

Condor provides parallel computing by distributing computation over large numbers of computers. More precisely, Condor is a job scheduler which matches job requirements to machine capabilities, scheduling jobs to run on idle machines. The Clemson Condor pool is a "grid" consisting of the student lab machines as well as the nodes in the Palmetto cluster. Currently the Condor pool is capable of running native Windows and Linux jobs.

Research Scientist staff are available to help get your computation running successfully.
