    HP today announced that it placed two systems in the top five of the TOP500 Supercomputer list, which catalogs the world’s 500 most powerful installed technical and commercial computer systems. Computational Research Laboratories (CRL), a division of TATA, India’s largest conglomerate, has deployed the largest supercomputer in Asia Pacific for use in the computational sciences space. The system will enable the organization to advance the state of modeling and simulation on a wide range of scientific fields, including life sciences and computer-aided engineering. The implementation has a peak performance of 175Tflop/s. The TATA system, an HP Cluster Platform 3000BL, has 114 HP BladeSystem c-Class enclosures, each with 16 dual-socket HP ProLiant BL460c compute nodes, all connected via 4X DDR Infiniband switches. HP’s second system in the top five is a 182 peak Tflop/s HP Cluster Platform 3000BL based on 2,128 HP ProLiant BL460c blade servers used by a Swedish government agency. The implementation, which has been measured for the list with 1,716 blade servers, was built to enable the organization to dramatically improve the performance of its operations.
