In early of march 2022, PARAM Ganga-a High-Performance Computational (HPC) facility has deployed at IIT Roorkee.
Earlier this year in feb, the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bengaluru installed the supercomputer 'Param Pravega'.
It will aid researchers to solve complex problems of national importance and global significance.
It will serve as an essential computer environment for the modern-day research along with their theoretical and experimental work.
The Mission envisages empowering national academic and R&D institutions spread over the country by installing a vast supercomputing grid comprising of more than 70 high-performance computing facilities.
An indigenously developed server platform called ‘Rudra’ is being tried out in a pilot system, with an interconnect for inter node communication called Trinetra also having been developed.
This misison has three phases-The National Supercomputing Mission in its three phases plans to increase India’s supercomputing capability to 45 petaflops, which will include three systems with 3 petaflops capability and one system with 20 petaflops capability.
Phase I looking at assembling supercomputers.
Phase II looking at manufacturing certain components within the country.
Phase III where a supercomputer is designed by India.
Currently we are in phase three which have started in sept 2021.
