A variety of unix platforms are used within EECS. Those that are officially supported by the department infrastructure are:
- Solaris 9 and 10 (Sparc, x86)
- Linux (Red Hat/CentOS, x86)
This list is not static. Other platforms are used in EECS, but the department makes no guarantees as to the interoperability of those systems with the departmental computing infrastructure or software support via SWW.
The department maintains a Solaris general login server, login.eecs.berkeley.edu. All departmental users (non-Instructional) may access this server.
