Parallelized Data Reduction on the Hydra Cluster


The Hydra Cluster
SAO has access to a Linux based Beowulf cluster, called Hydra. The cluster is located in Herndon, VA and consists of over 3000 compute cores (CPUs) and uses a Sun Grid Engine queuing system. 200 TB of public disk space is available for users.


Using Hydra

For detailed instructions and template scripts for running CASA on Hydra see Running Jobs on Hydra.

Note that Hydra can be used for serial as well as parallel jobs. The link above gives examples of both options.
