Bangalore: India’s fastest supercomputer, the second generation Param Yuva II was inaugurated by J Satyanarayana, secretary, department of electronics and information technology, at the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) facility in Pune. The supercomputer is capable of crunching data up to 524 teraflops, about 10 times faster than the Param Yuva-I.



Today it takes 18 to 20 years, from testing to designing, for researchers to discover a new drug. Param Yuva II will help reduce this time frame by 2-3years. The supercomputer will make weather predictions quicker and if researchers can predict weather condition of a 6 Km radius from the satellite data that they receive then with this new supercomputer at their disposal, they can cover a 10 Km radius and that’s not all. The versatile number crunching super machine will also reduce the power consumption by 35 percent.



The next-gen PARAM supercomputer is India’s largest supercomputer built with hybrid technology and has a peak computing capacity of more than 500 Teraflops. Delhi-based Netweb Technologies have tested and efficiently achieved a sustained performance of 370 Teraflops over LINPACK benchmark. The LINPAK benchmark is the measure of a system’s computing power and is used for ranking the supercomputers worldwide.



Sandeep Lodha, VP,Sales & Marketing, Netweb Technologies shared some insights and experiences with SiliconIndia about the installation of the fastest supercomputer in India.
