Annapurna- India’s seventh fastest supercomputer

Annapurna- India’s seventh fastest supercomputer was unveiled at the Institute of Mathematical Sciences (IMSc) in Chennai.

Atomic Energy Commission chairman Srikumar Banerjee unveiled the country’s seventh fastest high-performance computation 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 Annapurna in a completely non-commercial domain.

Complex issues ranging from biological applications and others can be approached by using this supercomputer. This device will be used in simulations and numerical calculations in the areas of statistical mechanics and condensed matter physics.

The Annapurna cluster is the third fastest, which ranks below the IISc Bangalore and Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai.
