"Having our own Fujitsu PRIMEFLEX for HPC infrastructure means we don’t need to rely on the cloud so there are no subscriptions and no waiting. We can publish more academic papers quickly and attract more grants."
Sudeep Narayan Banerjee, Systems Analyst/Scientist B Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar
The Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar (IITGN) was founded in 2008 and is sited in Gujarat on the banks of the Sabarmati river, near Ahmedabad, known for its rich cultural past as well as its state-of-the-art infrastructure and thriving industries.
IITGN wanted to extend its HPC capacity to meet a growing demand and complete complex projects more quickly. It needed to find the right hardware partner at the right price.
The institute has added a new cluster with 12 compute nodes and two GPGPU compute nodes, based on FUJITSU Integrated System PRIMEFLEX for HPC and PRIMERGY RX servers. This supports applications relating to Gaussian modelling, fluid dynamics, biological engineering and so on for around 60 users.
