Yahoo and Tatas Join Hands for Cloud Computing

Couple of months back, I wrote about Tata’s Eka , Asia’s fastest and world’s fourth fastest supercomputer.

Yahoo and Tatas have joined hands and CRI (Computational Research Laboratories, which is owned by Tata Sons) will make available to Y! researchers, one of the world’s top five supercomputers that has substantially more processors than any supercomputer currently available for cloud computing research.

The Yahoo!/CRL effort is intended to leverage CRL’s expertise in high performance computing and Yahoo!’s technical leadership in Apache Hadoop, an open source distributed computing project of the Apache Software Foundation, to enable scientists to perform data-intensive computing research on a 14,400 processor supercomputer.
