|Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) has
announced a partnership with Hewlett Packard 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 roll-out of the largest Itanium Linux
This implementation will enhance CMLs ability to conduct
world-class research in the area of computer science and mathematics.
It will TIFR has adopted the largest 64-bit Linux Itanium cluster
in India for the allow CML to run various complex algorithms with
up to a billion variables.
This implementation also represents a growing importance of Linux
based Industry Standard Architecture clusters with High Bandwidth
interconnect in High Performance Computing. The supercomputer includes
78 x 2-way Itanium nodes with a high performance Infiniband backbone.
Commenting on the partnership, Dr.Narendra Karmarkar, Tata Institute
of Fundamental Research head computational mathematics laboratory,
said, 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.tie-up with a globally competentcompany like HP
in providing supercomputing technology to do high end research in
the field of life science and computational biology. With this association
we have reached yet another milestone in technology adoption and
will continue to be successful and competitive to conduct world
We are happy to partner with TIFRa global leader in
research to set up one of the most powerful supercomputers
in India, said Pallab Talukdar, Director, Enterprise Marketing
and Alliances, HP India Sales Pvt. Ltd. Were confident
that our technologies and this partnership with TIFR will contribute
to many breakthroughs in the areas of Computer Science and Mathematics
that will have tangible benefits for people both in India and around
