Duplicate servers

Duplicate servers are provided for redundancy and improved performance.

The duplicate servers don't currently share user accounts or data with or with each other.

If you want to use the duplicate servers, you need to register on them and upload data to them.


You're welcome to run jobs on the duplicate servers and the main server simultaneously to do your analysis faster.

Please don't start more than one instance of 'Run Marxan', 'Parameter testing' or 'Run MarZone' simultaneously on a single server. This saturates the system for all users and could result in a ban.

Please don't press the 'Run' button in 'Run Marxan', 'Parameter testing' or 'Run MarZone' again until your runs finish. This saturates the system for all users and could result in a ban.
