Yahoo! India Research and Development sets up lab at IIT Madras

Yahoo! India R&D in partnership with the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT- Madras) today announced the launch of Yahoo! Grid Computing Lab at the IIT- Madras campus. This cluster of high-end servers at the lab will allow researchers to access web-scale data and conduct research on big data and cloud computing systems.

Yahoo has set up a grid computing lab here on IIT campus, consisting of a cluster of high-end servers running its open source Hadoop software, which will provide the infrastructure necessary to conduct research on big data and cloud computing systems.

“This partnership is beneficial to both of us. Our Indian product offerings generate over 200 terabytes of data every week. The big data research that will be performed at this lab can help us in analysing this data, which in turn, can be used to improve our various products – such as Yahoo front page,” said Hari Vasudev, Vice-President, Yahoo! Inc.
Yahoo! India R&D had previously established a similar lab at the IIT Bombay campus, which conducts research in data management and natural language processing.
