Eighteen on-site injuries and forty-two deaths have been officially reported (the national media, however, has devoted far less attention to the concerns raised by HLRN
and other NGOs than to various allegations of corruption, and problems that could potentially "embarrass" India, such as unfinished or shoddily built stadiums and the perception of insufficient security).
Two HLRN sites - the Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB) and the High Performance Computing Center (RRZN) at Leibniz University in Hannover, Germany - are leveraging Adaptive Computing's technology to support their advanced scientific research in a variety of fields, including bio-informatics, chemistry, climate and ocean modeling, engineering, environmental research, fluid dynamics and physics.
Joining forces with Adaptive Computing will allow us to run Cray XC30 at two HLRN locations in an extremely efficient and balanced way," said Peg Williams, Cray's senior vice president of high performance computing systems.
We look forward to continuing our rewarding relationship with HLRN on their new system, one of the largest Cray deployments in Europe," said Rob Clyde, CEO of Adaptive Computing.
Apart from Justice Shah and Kothari, others who took part in the panel discussion were Amitabh Kundu, Director of Hazards Centre and Dunu Roy of HLRN
SGI is the contractual vendor of both HLRN sites, where it will provide the corresponding solutions.
With the new SGI Altix system, the HLRN Group will be equipped, for the first time, with more than 25,000 processor cores," said Herr Prof.
By selecting a unified fabric from Voltaire that leverages both 20 Gigabits/second InfiniBand and 10 Gigabit Ethernet in a single switching platform, HLRN
gains improved performance and efficiency for their new supercomputer.
