Computing Grid

A high performance computing grid is maintained at Millstone Hill to allow the processing and analysis of data from a variety of instruments. This computer system is made up of normal computer servers interconnected using gigabit ethernet and a high performance network switch. Gigabit fiber optic networks connect the computing system to the radar instrumentation.
