Largest Linux Cluster To Be Rolled Out In India

Filed under
Linux

Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) announced a partnership with HP to implement High Performance Computing (HPC) solutions at its Computational Mathematics Laboratory (CML) in Pune.

The project will feature one of the largest supercomputers in India and will include the rollout of the largest Itanium Linux cluster.

This implementation will enhance CML's ability to conduct world-class research in the area of computer science and mathematics. It will allow CML to run various complex algorithms with up to a billion variables.

"These technologies will help us in our research on the fundamental problems in mathematics and optimization techniques. With the implementation of this Itanium cluster, we have reached yet another milestone in technology adoption to help "Scientific Discoveries using world-class algorithmic research in Computational Mathematics," said Dr. Narendra Karmarkar, head (CML), TIFR.

This implementation represents a growing importance of Linux based Industry Standard Architecture clusters with high bandwidth interconnect in HPC. The supercomputer includes 78 x 2-way Itanium nodes with a high performance Infiniband backbone.

Security Leftovers (Parrot Security OS 3.0 “Lithium”, Regulation)

  • Parrot Security OS 3.0 “Lithium” — Best Kali Linux Alternative Coming With New Features
    The Release Candidate of Parrot Security OS 3.0 ‘Lithium’ is now available for download. The much-anticipated final release will come in six different editions with the addition of Libre, LXDE, and Studio editions. The version 3.0 of this Kali Linux alternative is based on Debian Jessie and powered by custom hardened Linux 4.5 kernel.
  • Regulation can fix security, except you can't regulate security
    Every time I start a discussion about how we can solve some of our security problems it seems like the topics of professional organizations and regulation are where things end up. I think regulations and professional organizations can fix a lot of problems in an industry, I'm not sure they work for security. First let's talk about why regulation usually works, then, why it won't work for security.
