Param Pravega

Why in News

  • In February, 2022 the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru, has commissioned and installed Param Pravega, claimed to be one of the most powerful supercomputers, in the country.

About Param Pravega

  • The Param Pravega is an amalgamation of heterogeneous nodes, with Intel Xeon Cascade Lake processors for the CPU nodes and NVIDIA Tesla V100 cards on the GPU nodes. 
  • The hardware consists of an ATOS BullSequana XH2000 series system, with a comprehensive peak compute power of 3.3 petaflops.
  • The Mission has supported the deployment of 10 supercomputer systems so far at IISc, IITs, IISER Pune, JNCASR, NABI-Mohali and C-DAC, with a cumulative computing power of 17 petaflops under the National Supercomputing Mission.

Capacity

  • Param Pravega, which has a capacity of 3.3 petaflops (a measure of a computer’s processing speed; 1 petaflop equals a quadrillion or 1,015 operations per second).

Designed by 

  • Param Pravega has been designed by the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), under the National Supercomputing Mission (NSM).
  • In line with the Make in India spirit, C-DAC had a majority of components either manufactured or assembled in India with the help of an indigenous software stack developed by C-DAC.

Implementing Agency 

  • The NSM is implemented by the IISc Bengaluru and C-DAC, Pune with the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) at the helm of it.
