   C-DAC's lab in Bangalore to use Linux on IBM platform  

Dated August 13, 2002 - Online edition

India's Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) on Monday announced it is developing a National High Performance Computing Lab using Linux-ready platforms from IBM to develop applications and research in eGovernance solutions, life sciences, seismic analysis and weather forecasting.

The lab is scheduled for commissioning at C-DAC's Knowledge Park in Bangalore by the year end.

"This is significant to IBM since India is not only a strategic market for IBM and a resourceful base for it skills, but also as another area where the true value of Linux based computing can be shown," Michael Lawrie, Senior Vice President and Group Executive (sales and distribution), IBM Corporation told reporters in New Delhi.

The two sides on Monday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), as part of which C-DAC would also collaborate with IBM's India Research Laboratory in areas such as Hindi speech recognition, weather forecasting, eGovernance framework and grid computing technologies.

IBM has also appointed C-DAC as a system integration partner for High Performance Computing in India, and the partnership would focus on state and central government departments, education and government funded scientific and research institutions.
