Virtual Machines

The HPCC now offers virtual machine (VM) services for select web-based bioinformatics tools.  Examples of VMs deployed by HPCC include:

VM instances of bioinformatics tools can be password-controlled, customized, and established for individual researchers or working groups.  Contact the HPCC for more information.

Database Services


HPCC offers MySQL services through its "db-01" internal host.  Database access is currently restricted to users needing analytical tool "backend" services, such as those required by OrthoMCL.  Data set size is limited however, and large permanent sets cannot be accommodated.  Postgres services are also available. Contact us for more information.
