Getting started on Quarry


Quarry ( is Indiana University's primary Linux cluster computing environment for research and research instruction use. It also serves as a "condominium cluster" environment for researchers, research labs, departments, and schools that want to have computational nodes housed within the IU Bloomington Data Center and managed by UITS Research Technologies staff. Additionally, Quarry provides a virtual machine hosting environment for the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), the National Science Foundation's largest advanced cyberinfrastructure facility.

For system configuration details, plus information about requesting an account, logging in, compiling and running programs, and getting help, see Quarry at Indiana University.

Note: The maintenance window for Quarry is the first Tuesday of each month, 7am-7pm.

Getting started
