About Karst Desktop (retired)


UITS Research Technologies retired the Karst Desktop service on December 31, 2018.

Its replacement, the Research Desktop (RED) service is functionally equivalent to Karst Desktop, except:

  • To use RED, you need an account on Carbonate; for information about getting a Carbonate account, see Research system accounts (all campuses).
  • RED's dedicated nodes run Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (RHEL 7), whereas Karst Desktop nodes ran RHEL 6.

If you have questions about using RED or need help, contact the RED development team.

Support for IU research computing systems, software, and services is provided by the Research Technologies division of UITS. To ask a question or get help, contact UITS Research Technologies.
