MBB other services

In addition to the online resources presented in this web portal, the MBB platform also offers the following services to the CeMEB member units :


Requests of these services are accessible by this form if you want to integrate your program as an online tool or as a downloadable binary/source package on this platform website.


The development service is focused on sharing our experience about scientific program implementation techniques. This form allows you to submit a request if you need development assistance about parallelizing / optimizing a program, memory cleaning, porting code to other platforms, graphical libraries manipulation, packaging, compilation routines...

SSH cluster access

The MBB computation cluster behind the web service is also reachable by SSH connections. It's possible to request an SSH account on our tracking system. That account gives you access to a Linux shell on the cluster master node to submit your jobs to the computing nodes through Open Grid Scheduler queue manager.


This user-friendly interface is available to setup R scripts and run them on a dedicated machine. Use the tracking system to ask for an access to this web-based service. However, for a long term usage or if you plan to use much resources, please consider to use our cluster or book a "Standalone multicores servers" (see bellow).

GPU computations

A specific node in our cluster is equiped with a NVidia Tesla K20 graphical processing unit with 2496 GPU cores and 5GB of GDDR5 memory. This node can be reserved with the tracking system to run or compile CUDA programs.

Standalone multicores servers :

Three specific servers equiped with 64 cores and 512GB of memory are available for big demanding projects. These nodes can be reserved with the tracking system to run multithreaded or High-memory softwares. Users are also provided with root privileges allowing them to install all needed programs. The booking of these machines are moderate by our team. By default, we allow a booking for a maximum period of 3 weeks. If the current planning allows it, this period can be extent to 3 additionnal weeks. However, the overall time of reservation within a period of 3 months must not exceed 6 weeks.

All these services are reserved to CeMEB Labex members and associates.
