IRES Instruction and Research Server
Accounts
Setting up an IRES account for research computing

The primary purpose of the IRES server is to provide KU researchers with a Unix system for statistics and CPU-intensive numerical computing. It is also available for use by classes that require these functions.

In order to ensure fair availability of resources no individual user should run more than one CPU-intensive process at any time. Processes run in violation of this policy may be killed without further warning or notification.

IRES accounts are available to all KU faculty, staff, and graduate students involved in research computing. There is no charge for accounts. To set up an account, fill out the Computing Services account request form, selecting "Research System" and writing in "IRES." Note that passwords must be 7 to 16 characters long and must contain upper and lower case letters, at least one digit, and at least one special character. For more information contact System Access by email or by calling 785/864-0439.
