The departmental Unix laboratory is used for upper-division courses in Computer Science and for research in both the Mathematics and Computer Science Programs. Currently the lab has six Sun Ultra workstations in the following configurations:
Computer Science students Joey Martin ('99), on the left, and Paul Vitantonio('01) mellow out in the Unix lab before the start of the weekly programming team seminar.
Three Sun Ultra 5's, with 2-D graphics acceleration and 19" Sun Monitors
Three Sun Ultra 10's, with 3-D graphics acceleration and 21" Sun Monitors
The lab also contains:
Three high-end Dell workstations with dual 1.6 ghz Xenon processors and 19" flat-panel monitors which dual boot Windows XP and Red Hat Linux.
Two Macintosh G5s with dual 2.0ghz processors running OS X.
The laboratory also has a HP laser printer and houses the student ACM chapter Unix server. Of course the lab (the classrooms, the dorms, the campus!) is fully networked.
The departmental server is a Sun Enterprise 250 dual processor, which has more than enough horsepower to drive the lab and a number of simultaneous logins. The departmental web server is a Sun Ultra 5.
