HPC Application Optimization and Low Latency Messaging -
TCS Experience

With the acquisition of Computational Research Labs in 2012 TCS has invested in further expansion of its HPC capabilities. Prime among them was the scaling of compute intensive application on latest Intel and NVIDIA cluster. This talk will feature case studies of application performance optimization of scientific and engineering applications including the exploitation of underlying hardware architectures. Also discussed will be the teams experience in building low latency messaging  frameworks for financial applications.

Manoj Nambiar is currently working with TCS as a Principal Scientist, heading the Performance Engineering Research Center (PERC). He also leads the Parallelization and Optimization Centre of excellence as a part of the company’s HPC Initiative. Until 2011, Manoj has been working as a research lead in High Performance Messaging, Networking and Operating Systems in PERC. Prior to this has executed several consulting assignments in the performance engineering area specializing in network and systems performance.

Manoj has a B.E from the University of Bombay, and a post graduate diploma in VLSI design from C-DAC, India.

Nishant Agrawal is working as a Enterprise & HPC Specialist at Performance Engineering Research Centre, TCS Innovation Labs, Mumbai. He has software development & architecting experience of about 12 years in the area of HPC, Messaging, Wireless telecom & Networking domain. Currently leading Parallelization and Optimization of Enterprise and Scientific applications including BFS, CFD, Pharma domains on Intel and NVIDIA architectures. Technical expert in System performance analysis, development and optimization of applications using Parallel Computing technologies such as CUDA, MPI, OpenMP, Pthreads.

Nishant holds a B.E Computer Science degree from Raipur University.
