Paper Abstract

The immense scale of data from modern radio interferometer arrays results in processing demands requiring HPC facilities to produce scientific results. However, in the modern era such facilities are more complex than a single monolithic HPC system. The transfer and processing of scientific data must be managed across hierarchies of storage and processing architectures; including traditional HPC, heterogeneous HPC, database and visualisation systems. The ICRAR Data Intensive Research Pathfinder (DIRP) will consist of an integrated system of the hardware, middleware, tools and interfaces to support ICRAR data intensive research primarily focused on data owing from the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP1) and the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) telescopes.
