India's supercomputer kings add up to 308 TFlops

The Hewlett Packard cluster computer at Tata Son’s Computational Research Lab, Pune remains India’s supercomputing king, clocking 132.8 teraflops, but IBM takes the crown for the maximum number of systems --six -- in list of India’s Top Supercomputers announced last week. Bangalore leads the list in the number of supercomputers, followed by Chennai. The combined supercomputer performance featured on the list, and hence the India, is now about 308 TFlops.
No 2 is the Param Cluster at Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC), Pune (38.1 teraflops) and the third is the IBM Blue Gene at the Tata Insititute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) (23.25 TFlops).
Since December 2008, Top Supercomputers-India coordinated by the Supercomputer Education and Research Centre, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, has been an effort to list the most powerful supercomputers in India. It is complementary to the global Top500 project that lists the top 500 supercomputers in the world.( see our separate story: http://www.indiatechonline.com/top500-cupercomputers-june-2011-272.php  )
The procedures followed in the submission of supercomputers and verification the same as in Top500. The evaluation procedure is the same as in Top500 project where the ``best performance on the Linpack benchmark is used as performance measure for ranking the computer systems". However in a curious anomaly, the IBM cluster at the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, Pune has been ranked no 6 with 11.6 TFlops; while the cluster submitted to the global Top500 has been rated to clock 55.11 TFlops and on this basis makes it to the Top500 at no.221. IBM announced it has emerged as the leader in the recently released India’s Top Supercomputers list for 2011: of the sixteen installations featured by SERC, IBM topped the list with six high performance computing (HPC) installations across India. These include IBM Blue Gene Solutions at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, as well as IBM Power 6 cluster solutions at the India Meteorological Department, Delhi and the Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS), Hyderabad.
SERC has been compiling and publishing the Top Supercomputers list in India since Dec 2008. This year there were a total of sixteen entries in the list with minimum performance criteria over 3.11 TFlops.

  "Aw, this was a very nice post. In concept I would like to put in writing like this moreover – taking time and actual effort to make a very good article… however what can I say… I procrastinate alot and on no account seem to get one thing done."

  "Yeah, there is a sense of blood in the water and people are triyng to drive down what they pay under the assumption that companies have infinitely elastic pricing (not true, not even remotely correct), and if they push hard, they can get more for less. SGI (and LNXI to an extent) is what you get when this happens. Hopefully this will raise cautionary flags. Not likely, as few people consider the long term implications of their actions in a grand scheme, just how it affects them locally at this moment. I've seen the vendor held accountable for the users/purchasers mistakes. We try to warn customers off really bad decisions, but it doesn't always work. We've had people yell at us after them doing something we warned them against. On the Lustre side yeah, well we are getting lots of things like that these days. Few seem to comprehend that Lustre really does require some (large) fraction of an FTE, and serious design considerations, up-front. There are many moving parts, and there is complexity that tends to bite them hard if they aren't ready for it. On the other side, when I point this out in public fora, I am accused of Lustre/Sun bashing (with the inevitable DoS attempts at our mail system later on). It would be funny if it weren't so sad. Clusters are not rack-em-stack-em, though we get lots of folks who want you to believe precisely this. A well designed cluster and HPC system, including storage, management, etc, will run well for years, with minimal downtime and administrator interaction. A poorly designed system will require constant interaction to shore up its weakness. Designing and implementing a good system is a non-trivial task. Designing and implementing a good system that can grow and scale well is a very hard task, and from what we have seen, precious few know enough how to do this. Scaling in IO rates, or computation rates, etc."
