India’s fastest supercomputer PARAM Yuva II Launch

Now Indian would call them the citizen of top ranked country in research and development globally as the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing, Pune has successfully launched ‘Param Yuva II’, India’s fastest supercomputer.

Developed by C-DAC, Param Yuva II’ is the new upgraded 524 TeraFlop version of its earlier PARAM Yuva , has inaugurated by J Satyanarayana, Secretary, Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), Govt of India.

With launch as part of National Mission on Supercomputing, India becomes the first R&D institution to cross the 500TF milestone, while ranks at 62nd position for fastest computer in the world.

Featuring 10 times faster than the predecessor, the supercomputer will be the most effective device to solve large and complex computational problems , best for scientific community, covering areas like weather forecasting, seismic data analysis and scientific data processing .

The supercomputer is expected to provide more than half a Petaflop of raw compute power based on hybrid compute technology, also running on home network- PARAMNet-III and Infiniband FDR System Area Network.

It has also said that PARAM Yuva-II features 200 Terabytes of high performance storage and sees to be helpful in several research applications such as pharmaceuticals, bio informatics, aeronautical engineering and weather predictions.

Sources said, promising energy efficient with 35% reduction in energy consumption, PARAM Yuva II will be the main part of attraction from users of the scientific institutes, research laboratories and universities.

India’s quantum jump with PARAM Yuva has possible after three months long successful record of work by 300 members’ team of C-DAC, creating a general purpose research-oriented computational environment.
