Largest Linux Cluster To Be Rolled Out In India

Filed under

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.

Suse: Question. What do you call second-place in ARM enterprise server linux? Answer: Red Hat

ARM TechCon Suse is claiming victory over Red Hat by announcing – and these caveats are all crucial – "the first commercial enterprise Linux distribution optimized for ARM AArch64 architecture servers." In plainer English, Suse has developed an enterprise-grade Linux distribution that runs on 64-bit ARM servers (should you happen to ever find one). Suse claims this software is a world first because it is a finished commercial product, thus beating Red Hat to the punch: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server for ARM is still only available as a beta-like development preview.
