When you would like to use one of the services that is provided by ID SIS HPC, then you need to authenticate yourself with an account. For some services we use the ETH account for authentication, for others there are accounts, which are local on the system.


Brutus is no longer in operation.


If you used the Euler cluster before the 15. May 2020, then you would need to change your LDAP password and your existing account again needs to be authorized to get again access to the Euler cluster. In case you did not use the Euler cluster before the 15. May 2020, please request authorization of your ETH account for Euler from cluster support.


Access is restricted to Leonhard shareholders and groups that want to test it before investing. Guest users cannot access the Leonhard cluster. The first login of a new user triggers a process that sends a verification code to the users ETH email address (, with USERNAME being the ETH account name). The user is then prompted to enter the verification code and by entering the correct code, the cluster account of the user is created.

MATLAB Distributed Computing Server (MDCS)

Any member of ETH can use the MATLAB Distributed Computing Server (MDCS) service; the only requirement is a valid ETH account. In order to use this service, you first need to login to the Euler cluster once and accept the usage agreement.

CLC genomics server

The CLC genomics server uses local accounts for authentication. If you would like to use this service, then please contact cluster support to request your CLC account.
