This course is a continuation An Introduction to Research Computing at York. If you are new to Linux command line we recommend you go through the steps of An Introduction to Research Computing at York first before moving Viking.
There is also a video demoing how to use Viking taken from the research coding club meeting here
Before you can access Viking you will to create a Viking account. The process can take a couple of days please complete the following steps
See VK1) How to access Viking for more information
If you are finding that your code is still taking a long time to finish or you wish to scale your work, the Viking cluster may be what you need.
Viking is a large Linux compute cluster aimed at users who require a platform for development and the execution of small or large compute jobs. Viking is a multidisciplinary facility, supporting a broad spectrum of research needs, free at the point of use to all University of York researchers. Viking is as much a facility for learning and exploring possibilities as it is a facility for running well-established high-performance computing workloads. In this light, we encourage users from all Faculties, backgrounds and levels of ability to consider Viking when thinking about how computing might support their research.
