2 Pune Computers (from IITM and CDAC) in world’s top 100 supercomputers

The world’s top 100 supercomputers list for 2013 is out and it lists 4 supercomputers from India, 2 of which are from Pune.

Here are the 4 Indian computers in that list:

  • Number 36: Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, Pune. Specs: iDataPlex DX360M4, Xeon E5-2670 8C 2.600GHz, Infiniband FDR. It has 38016 cores, and can do up to 790 teraflops
  • Number 69: C-DAC, Pune. Specs: PARAM Yuva – II – R2208GZ Cluster, Xeon E5-2670 8C 2.600GHz, Infiniband FDR, Intel Xeon Phi 5110P. It has 30600 cores and can do up to 529 teraflops.
  • Number 89: National Center for Medium Range Weather Forcast. Specs: iDataPlex DX360M4, Xeon E5-2670 8C 2.600GHz, Infiniband FDR. It is pretty much the same computer as the IITM computer, but with half the number of cores. Both computers were built by IBM.
  • Number 95: CSIR Center for Mathematical Modelling and Computer Simulation. Specs: Cluster Platform 3000 BL460c Gen8, Xeon E5-2670 8C 2.60GHz, Infiniband FDR. This computer, built by HP, has 17344 cores, and goes up to 360 teraflops.

Interestingly, Eka from the Tatas, which was at one time the world’s 4th fastest supercomputer (and fastest privately funded one) is completely missing from the list.
