The Synchrotron Light Source at Daresbury Laboratory is supported by a large distributed computing system which provides facilities for data analysis and storage as well as information services and facility administration.
While the majority of services are currently provided by UNIX servers, Windows NT is becoming increasingly important as the basis for running the facility.
This poster gives an overview of the main components of the distributed computing system, the technologies used and also the infrastructure required to support it. This poster supplements the Daresbury Computing Facility Report.
