is a pool of interactive Debian
-based computers inside the Network
at the CRYRING cave and its electronics containers. The network is private and largely isolated from the main GSI campus network. It can be accessed remotely
through specific proxy hosts. User profiles inside the
pool are roamed and you should find a uniform work environment on any of these computers.
Please be advised:
- Disk access is limited by a (fairly adequate and negotiable) quota.
- The pool is still largely in development. Apologies in advance, should you observe any hiccups!
- We do not create archives or backups of your data. It is entirely up to you to take care of your valuable data. If you or the system loses data, they are gone.
- If your account expires, we will delete your data in time and without further communication.
- Please avoid storing personal data on your account (i.e. passwords, chat protocols, email accounts, calendar data...)
We do our best to track the stable release of Debian
with security updates and to keep all systems in sync.

We are maintaining our own installations of various scientific codes and computational frameworks for atomic physics and GSI data processing
software. Among them are e.g.
Please let us know if you miss any essential software for your experiment-related work.
