Facilities - IT Backbone

Dedicated computing facilities

The modeling cluster of the Department of Marketing of Ghent University operates about 100 servers, which are used for the different projects we carry out. Linux is the most frequently used operating system, but for MMA students, the use of Microsoft Windows 2003 Server is preferred. Below, you see the program director of the Master of Marketing Analysis next to our lastest acquisition, a mini rack of 13 Dell Poweredge SC1425 Servers. A total of about 120 Tb is available for storage of large databases.
