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.

FSF's High Priority Project List Now Has A Committee

The Free Software Foundation has now built up a committee to review their "High Priority Projects" list and they're looking for more feedback from the community. Nearly ten years ago is when the Free Software Foundation began listing what they viewed as the High Priority Free Software Projects in a list. This list has over time contained some definite high-priority projects related to freeing Java and Adobe PDF support and open graphics drivers to some more obscure projects of high priority like a free version of Oracle Forms, a replacement to OpenDWG libraries for CAD files, automatic transcription software, etc. I've personally called out many of the FSF HPP for what they're worth with my thoughts over the years.
