GITAM Centre for Advanced Technology Solutions (CATS) has developed a Super Computer, called “High Performance Computer (HPC) Cluster”, capable of delivering 1.5 Teraflops (1.5 Trillion Floating Point Operations per Second) performance.
This Super Computer is built with 16 Dual-Processor Sun Rack Servers comprising of 128 Cores and Half Terabyte of RAM.
The Technology used in this Super Computer is “Massively Parallel Processing (MPP)”.
Launching the technology, GITAM University President M.V.V.S. Murhti appreciated the CATS team for their achievement.
According to CATS Director and Chief Technology Officer, V. Rao Bathina using the super computer GITAM is now capable of taking up very-high computer intensive research and consulting works in the areas such as bioinformatics, molecular modeling, nanotechnology, simulation of large systems, meteorology & weather forecasting, finite element analysis of high-raised building & complex mechanisms, quantum & nuclear physics, computational chemistry, data mining, business intelligence, statistical analysis etc.
With this Super Computer the university can handle high-performance-computing (HPC) requirements, he added.
He mentioned that very few universities in India are having this type of Super Computer in their campuses. GITAM Vice-Chancellor, G. Subramanyam, Pro Vice-Chancellor, D. Harinarayana and Registrar, M. Potha Raju were among those present.
