MATH does not have servers dedicated to just faculty and students at MATH. We had at one point, but they were only seldomly used. So instead AUIT provides some general purpose Linux servers all students and faculty at AU kan use. See below.
If you need to run simulation, a large calculation or something similar on a Linux server you can use the server
This is actually several servers (see further explanation below). The server(s) are only accessible via SSH. To login you use your auAUID as your username and your normal AU password, that is
(other SSH option may also be relevant such as -X and -Y).
If you use Windows, we recommend using the free tool Moba Xterm which includes SSH and other tools needed to communication with a Linux server from Windows (Moba Xterm also include a simple file transfer tool). On Mac and Linux SSH is already available, though you will probably need to install XQuartz on your Mac if you want to open a graphical interface from the Linux server and display it on your Mac.
On the linuxapp servers you will find tool like MatLab, Mathematica, SAS, R, python, CPLEX etc. If it is free and available for Ubuntu, you can probably get the IT department to install it. Such request needs to be sent to the helpdesk, this is also the case if you know there are available updates to the tools listed earlier. Note that the MATH department does not have admin access to these servers.
In order to avoid a lot of wasted space on AUs storage servers, most users does NOT have any storage space on the linuxapp servers to start with. You will need to ask the Helpdesk to grant you storage space for the linuxapp.
Contact your local Helpdesk (email is preferred, they will need to know your auAUID), explain to them that you want to use the linuxapp servers and that you do not seem to have a storage space available on it and that you would like to get such a storage space.
If the helpdesk does not know what the linuxapp servers as (as these are Linux servers the Windows supporters may never have heard of it), ask the helpdesk supporter to look up linuxapp in their internal Support Wiki, which will tell them that in case a person need storage space for LinuxApp, the helpdesk need to register a task at GenApps (IT backoffice) for this person to have storage access on the linuxapp servers.
Behind linuxapp.au.dk is actually several servers, linuxapp.au.dk is just a front end/load balancer. As of Jan-2020 it is 3 virtualised serveres running on Intel Xeon each with 64Gb of RAM. They are not super computers, but generally more capable than your average desktop PC or laptop.
Note that the servers does not have dedicated GPUs!
Otherwise feel free to come and ask. Just remember that the linuxapp are NOT dedicated MATH servers they are maintained by AUIT (their Linux department).
