High Performance Computing (HPC) Facility At India’s Institute Of Plasma Research
IPR has recently established a computational cluster facility with approximately 1 PetaFlops (1PF) theoretical peak compute capability.
This 1PF HPC system named, as ANTYA having more than 10000 cores can perform 10 *15 Floating-Point Operations Per Second (FLOPS).
Structure of the IPR Data Centre
It is housed in IPR Data Centre with 24×7 operations. The name ANTYA has been derived from Sanskrit language and means 10*15. More than 20 HPC applications from various science and engineering domains have been successfully installed and tested to demonstrate the parallel capabilities of ANTYA.
These applications include highly scalable open-source codes, in-house developed codes and the commercial licensed software. Several of these codes exhibited a near-linear scaling.
ANTYA is now fully operational on a 24×7 basis, and is being used for a variety of numerical simulations covering computational fluid dynamics, particle-in-cell, Molecular Dynamics, Magneto-Hydro-Dynamics, Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence etc.
