pool of Unix workstations such as, SUN Ultra 20, HP XW6400 .
& IBM Intellistation E Pro enable users to access the high-end servers at SERC. The
Unix workstation cluster is equally complemented by a cluster
of Intel Pentium running Linux and/or Windows OS.
server cluster consisting of a Dual Intel Xeon based 5 Tera
bytes server with Ultrium LTO-based scalable tape library
and an IBM RS/6000 43P 260
with SSA Storage.
numerical packages, such as MatLab,
Maple, along with architecture-specific
matmematical libraries, such as IMSL, ESSL,
SCSL, DXML, and MLIB, and a collection of special purpose
packages like Software for Computational
Chemistry such as Gaussian with Gaussview, ADF,
Schrodinger and Spartan, Software for Material Science groups,
such as the Accelrys
Cerius and Material Studio suites, software for Life Sciences
Groups, such as Accelrys
Insight, Tripos and MOE etc.,
supplement the advanced hardware at SERC.
Gigabit Ethernet backbone of the SERC
Local Area Network provides dedicated 100/1000
Mbps connectivity to each workstation/ server at SERC. The
SERC network is also connected to the campus-wide full-duplex
Gigabit Ethernet backbone, providing gigabit-speed bandwidth
across different departments of the Institute.
infrastructure comprising of a 600 KVA UPS, 1.5 MW DG Sets, 2MW Electrical Sub-station and nearly 600 TR of Air-conditioning enable 24x7 operation
of the Centre, thereby providing uninterrupted network and
computing services to the users.
