Our biggest testimonial is our clients, who are among the business elite of India. They range in size from companies with a turnover exceeding $ 1000 million, to small firms with a turnover less than $ 1 million. Some of the clients for whom we have done interesting projects are:

The National Stock Exchange of India. One of the world's largest stock exchanges and based in Mumbai, the NSE has been our client for many years. We have built an online test administration system for them with a Web-based interface. We have also build an online real-time fault-tolerant cluster-computing solution for the NSE to recalculate risk exposure using Value-at-Risk algorithm for their futures and options trading system. This system is unique in the world, and provides super-computer performance by using a cluster of Intel computers running Linux on an MPI backbone.
