We are happy to announce a pilot of Open OnDemand, a new way to access interactive Linux servers. OnDemand lets you run all the same programs as Linstat and submit jobs to Slurm, but with a graphical “desktop” interface similar to Winstat or a regular PC or Mac. The SSCC Knowledge base can walk you through how to log in to OnDemand and how to carry out common tasks using the OnDemand interface.
While this is a pilot, if all goes well we anticipate Open OnDemand becoming the primary way to use interactive Linux servers at the SSCC.
Supporting Statistical Analysis for Research
The SSCC’s staff is here to answer your questions, help you use our services, and solve your computing problems. The SSCC Help Desk is your first point of contact whether you need help logging into Winstat, a fix for your computer, or statistical advice.
The SSCC provides powerful Windows and Linux servers with the most popular statistical software, plus a secure computing environment for working with HIPAA and other sensitive data.
The SSCC’s statistical consultants provide consulting and training for social science researchers on statistical and data science topics. They’ve also created an extensive statistical computing knowledge base.
If you’re taking a class that uses SSCC’s resources, you can use our computer lab or log in to servers from home. You can also get help using statistical software from our consultants. Instructors, start here to learn about our support for instruction, request accounts for your students, or sign up to use our computer classroom.
