The Rowan University Computational Cluster, or RUCC, is Rowan's research computing platform. Primarily funded through National Science Foundation and Robert Wood Johnson grants, this resource is used by the College of Science and Mathematics and the College of Engineering for computational research.

You must use an SSH client to connect to RUCC. Windows users must download a client such as PuTTY while Mac OS X users may user Terminal (already installed on the system). The address to connect to RUCC is rucc.rowan.edu. Below is a connection example from a Mac OS X System:
Small Data Sets
For small programs generating trivial sized datasets, a user may use their home directory on rucc.rowan.edu. If unsure how to access your home directory on RUCC, follow the below steps:
Home directory sizes are restricted and will not be allocated additional space under any circumstances. Any programs or data set generations that are above a trivial size should utilize one of the larger storage options in the below section.
Large Data Sets
rucc-headnode:/home - user configuration files and small programs
rucc-headnode:/csm_data - location for research projects and large data set for College of Science and Mathematics
ruck-storage:/coe_data - location for research projects and large data set for College of Engineering
This system is configured to use the SLURM job scheduler.
What is SLURM?
SLURM (Simple Linux Utility for Resource Management) is a workload manager that provides a framework for job queues, allocation of compute nodes and the start and execution of jobs.
The cluster compute node are available in SLURM partitions. User submit jobs to requestion node resources in a partition. SLURM partitions for general use are listed below. The default is the compute partition. If you do not specify a partition, your job will be submitted to the default partition. Currently, there are no restrictions on who can submit to which partition.
