    Moreover, indigenous supercomputers built before:
    PARAM Series
    Anupam Series
    SAGA Series
    And many more.

    India to get indigenously-built supercomputer under a massive mission plan by 2017

    Under the National Supercomputing Mission’s plan, which got an approval from the government in March last year, in next 7 years 80 supercomputers will be built.

    India is all set to have an indigenously-built supercomputer by 2017. Government has launched a Rs 4,500-crore programme, which aims at helping India enter an elite league of nations who have made advancements in the field. The project is being handled by the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing, said Ashutosh Sharma, Secretary in the Ministry of Science and Technology. Param, India’s first supercomputer was also built by the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing.

    Under the National Supercomputing Mission’s plan, which got an approval from the government in March last year, in next 7 years 80 supercomputers will be built. “Some of them will be imported and the rest will be built be indigenously. The first one will come up by August 2017,” said Sharma.

    “We are working on how to control heat. The cost of power to run these supercomputers alone will be around Rs 1,000 crore,” he added. The new supercomputers will be kept in different institutes across the country. “A supercomputer can be used for various purposes like climate modeling, weather forecast, discoveries of drugs among others,” Sharma said. US, Japan, China and the European Union currently account for a major share of the top supercomputing machines in the world.

    Even I realized it only after reading your comment.

    @Indx TechStyle
    I am waiting for Pakistan to raise concern about this development and claim that strategic balance in South Asia is being altered and Pakistan will have to take corrective measures by building more tactical nukes. That is the only thing they can do after every advancement India makes.

    On top of it, the article mentions 'climate modeling', now jahil Pakistanis are going to claim that India is working on a climate weapon. :blah:

    There is already a facility Gadanki Ionospheric Radar Interferometer (GIRI) termed as a weather weapon.

    Nice question.
    I'm thinking of a discussion over this as well after collecting info.
    For now, site:
    http://www.dei.ac.in/dei/quantumNano/

    For more,
    Experimental
    Dr. Rajamani Vijayaraghawan Lab
    http://www.tifr.res.in/~quantro/research.htm
    There are many more. :)
    Others are HRI, RRI, IISc,
    We mainly research on this.

    Iske toh naam mein hee interference hai. Pakistan will surely raise concern about strategic imbalance in 'South Asia'.

    Yet not in top 20.
    We will be manufacturing 80 supercomputers in India in April, 2017 which will be a mix of computers manufactured by indigenous and foreign vendors. So, will get some rank up.
    But for playing in the league big league, I think we'll take a decade.

    A supercomputer to take complex computation to villages
    The aim is to make it accessible even to bright students in remote locations.
    Who says we can't break into the league of the leaders?:D

    Grid computing interconnects computer resources to solve complex engineering and science problems.

    Powerful stats

    1 teraflop: 1 trillion floating point operations per second

    1 petaflop: 1 thousand trillion floating point operations per second

    1 petaflop: 1,000 teraflops

    It's good for a world class institution but given that it's fastest in 3 regions and one of the fastest in India, we will have to do a lot more if compare with PRC, US or Japan.:)

    ISRO to develop new supercomputer
    If completed in a decent time frame, it can break into top 50 supercomputers at least.

    Now that's a good news. With C-DAC pitching in, it would be a great help to indigenous design concept and implementation. But do you have any track of the proposed semi conductor facility in India? Without a in house semi conductor and processor, we would always be lagging behind in the race. Although premier eductional institutes like IITs are getting their super computers along with a few NITs, but I think it should become a norm to have one in every technical institute in the range of TF. Budget would be a huge constraint, but I think with in house semi conductor tech, we would be able to make these more affordable.

    BTW one glimpse of the general architecture of a Supercomputer for nerds.... :cool3:
