Support for UNIX at SLAC consists of fully-supported central services for user authentication, file servers, mail, news, name, time, and print services. A number of servers provide interactive login service for general computing use. Most desktop UNIX systems are supported as dataless clients of the central services; support beyond that level is the responsibility of the individual groups. A compute farm is provided for all users to provide high-performance computing and bulk tape and disk data storage.
