Tata’s supercomputer ‘Eka’ begins pilot work for commercial applications
Within India, there isn’t that much advanced design work that would really put the supercomputer to use. So, the availability by itself will not lead to a major demand within India. Only the likes of Boeing and the Airbus, or automotive companies abroad that would use the technology, apart from companies like Tata Motors and M&M, who do some top-end design work. Sources said, “Boeing might require this since they are at the cutting edge of aerodynamics and aerospace design. Same thing with an Airbus or a Lockheed. In automotive also, companies could look at computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for conducting crash tests and the like,” adding that “Not much of this is Tata group dependent. We have the world market to tap.” Within the Tata group, each company takes its own decisions on what is required. An animation company like Tata Elixi might be interested but it is a question of what price and what power suits them. Similarly, TCS may have a problem, but they will see what price and other terms will suit them.
