A Petascale Made in India “PARAM Ganga” supercomputer was put in at IIT Roorkee on Monday by BVR Mohan Reddy, Chairman of the Board of Governors of Indian Institute of Expertise (IIT) Roorkee. The 1.66 PFLOPS (Peta Floating-Level Operations Per Second) implementation at IIT Roorkee by the Middle for Improvement of Superior Computing (CDAC) was constructed underneath the Nationwide Supercomputing Mission (NSM) method.
The aim is to supply computing energy to the consumer neighborhood at IIT Roorkee and neighboring tutorial establishments. It’s a joint initiative of the Division of Science and Expertise (DST) and the Ministry of Electronics and Data Expertise (MeitY).
IIT Roorkee had signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the CDAC earlier to ascertain a state-of-the-art supercomputing facility involving crucial elements resembling motherboards for servers, liquid cooling information facilities at direct contact are made in India progressing in the direction of the federal government of India’s “Atmanirbhar Bharat” initiative.
Whereas addressing the occasion, Reddy mentioned, “IIT Roorkee will perform advanced research and capacity building using this supercomputing infrastructure developed under NSM. that motherboards for compute nodes and direct contact liquid cooling data centers, are manufactured in India as per the initiative of the Indian government of Atmanirbhar Bharat.”
Dr. Darbari emphasised: “The basic idea behind building a petascale supercomputer with components made in India is to pave the way to Aatmanirbhar Bharat and simultaneously accelerate problem-solving capability in multidisciplinary fields. To this end, “PARAM Ganga”, the new high-performance computing (HPC) facility would help researchers solve complex problems of national and global importance. The new HPC infrastructure will serve as the essential computing environment. for modern research as well as for their theoretical and experimental work.
