The centre is equipped with all basic parallel computing platforms / architectures including Shared Memory (SMP), Multi-cores, Distributed Memory (Cluster), GPGPUs and Cloud Infrastructure. The centre has 10 TFLOPS of computational power consisting of Intel Xeon 3xxx and 5xxx series, AMD Opteron and Nvidia / AMD Radeon GPGPU cards.
The HPCC cloud offers pre-configured or on-demand configured instances based on open source technologies to store, manage, and process data, rather than on a local server. This reduces cost and complexity of buying and managing the underlying hardware, software, provisioning and hosting. Currently we support PaaS and IaaS Cloud model. The cloud is ideal for universities and R&D organizations for implementing virtual laboratories and various test-beds.
The centre has two cluster systems. These systems offer high performance and high availability computing platforms to researchers and industries for their specific computational hunger workloads such as engineering design, data mining, financial data analysis, business intelligence, digital media etc.
The Centre also serves as a software repository for the whole university. Numerous generic as well as application oriented open-source andlicensed software, related to different engineering disciplines, are available for use in all kinds of Research & Development work. Stand-alone software can only be used at the Centre while Network based software enable the usage throughout the University.
*The centre strictly observe the license policies as described by the software companies.
