Amarel was officially introduced in production mode on July 10, 2017 with free/open access available for all students, staff, and faculty who are current members of the Rutgers community.

Generally, users access the cluster using the hostname which will redirect sessions to one of the available login nodes. We strongly encourage you to browse the Amarel Users Guide.  There, you’ll find general information as well as more specific guidance for configuring and running jobs, types of hardware partitions, and other useful tips.
