Competence Building

HPC division has been actively supporting C-DAC in the following activities for competence building.

  • Building End-to-End Solutions and Ecosystem: Drawing from a large pool of resources and skill sets developed over the years as part of its HPC program, C-DAC also extends its expertise to build and manage the gamut of HPC requirements of other academic and research institutes. Some such institutes are:

    Research and Scientific Labs: NCMRWF, Delhi; NCL, Pune; IMD, Pune; TIFR, Pune; IUCAA, Pune; BARC, Mumbai; NIO, Goa; PRL, Ahmedabad; IGCAR, Kalpakkam; INCOIS, Hyderabad; NIRD, Hyderabad; NEIST, Jorhat; NEHU, Shilong; and NESAC, Meghalaya

    Academia: IITs; IISc, Bangalore; IISER, Pune; JNU, New Delhi; CCSHAU, HISAR; University of Hyderabad; Bharathiar University, Coimbatore; Bharathidasan University, Trichy; and NIT, Silchar

  • Grid Garuda enables researchers and scientists of partner institutions to work in collaboration and use HPC systems from their respective research labs.
  • Establishment of HPC facilities outside the country: As a part of the projects funded by MEA, C-DAC is involved in setting up of HPC facilities in GHANA, Armenia, Tanzania, Vietnam and Kazakhastan
  • NPSF at C-DAC, Pune houses PARAM Yuva II, the latest in the series of PARAM supercomputing systems developed by C-DAC. It deploys high bandwidth three-tier Storage Architecture providing about 1 Petabyte of storage including backup. This system with Rmax (Sustained Performance) of 386.7 TFs and Rpeak (Peak Performance) of 529.4 TFs, ranked Sixty Ninth (69th) in the Top500 list released in June 2013.
  • CTSF at C-DAC, Bangalore houses PARAM Padma supercomputing system developed and launched by C-DAC in 2003. This system ranked 171st out of Top500 supercomputers of the world in June 2003. PARAM Padma originally had a peak computing power of 2 TeraFlops, which has now been upgraded to 20 Teraflops.
