India unveils supercomputer 'Annapurna'

#1
India's latest supercomputer, 'Annapurna', was unveiled at the Institute of Mathematical Sciences (IMSc) in Chennai on Saturday.

Atomic Energy Commission chairman Srikumar Banerjee unveiled the country's seventh fastest high-performance computation (HPC) cluster having 1.5 Tera Byte (TB) memory and 30 TB storage space cluster capacity.

Banerjee lauded the technical team behind the effort for creating the super computer in a completely non-commercial domain.

Complex issues ranging from biological applications and others could not have been approached in the absence of a supercomputer, he said.
"Among broad-based scientific institutions in India, the Annapurna cluster is the third fastest, ranking below the IISc Bangalore and Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai," an IMSc release said.

The device will be used in simulations and numerical calculations in the areas of statistical mechanics and condensed matter physics among others, it added.
