Courant has a number of systems that can be used for CPU intensive jobs and programming assignments for courses and research. These machines are restricted to logins from within the Courant network, so if you are coming from outside of CIMS, you will have to first login to one of the remote access servers, then use ssh to get to them.

Please do not use access.cims.nyu.edu for cpu-intensive jobs or course work.

To check the SSH Fingerprint  and verify the Host Identity of the servers listed to to this page.

Other Machines

There are also systems associated with research groups. They are restricted to users who have been approved by a faculty member associated with the relevant research group.

One such group of systems belongs to the Center for Atmosphere Ocean Science (CAOS).
