This we did in the shortest duration just six weeksand the space which Eka occupies is one-and-a-half to two times less than what a similar machine would have required,” he says.

NIFTY 50 10, The type of applications that EKA is testing in digital media—Maya, Material Studio, Abacus, Renderman, to name a few—proves that the zing in the Indian media market has not gone unnoticed by this research organization. CRL also uses the open source software Linux to lash together the humongous horsepower generated by such high-speed servers. Says Rajendra Lagu, head of applications at CRL, “We are a company that has a large number of doctorates and it was but natural that we would utilise their capabilities to the maximum.
