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.
