C-DAC, Pune aims to install its compact supercomputing system, ‘PARAM SHAVAK’, in at least 50 educational and research institutes across India, this year.
Christened Param Shavak, the system seeks to make super computing accessible for scientific, engineering and academic programmes. Launched in December 2014, it has been installed at 25 institutes.
C-DAC, which is the premier R&D organisation of the Department of Electronics and Information Technology, has termed the system ‘supercomputer in a box’. “The Param Shavak has been very well accepted and we intend to do another 50 such installations in 2016. This would not be restricted only to India and we will try and tap markets like Myanmar and Bangladesh as well,” Moona said.
Param Shavak is available in a single server table top model. It aims to provide high-performance computing capabilities for engineering and scientific applications to catalyse research using modelling, simulation and data analysis.
