New Delhi, INDIA — India has deployed its third indegenously developed supercomputer – Param – supporting scientific applications such as fluid dynamics, image processing and climate modelling, in Russia.
“We have just completed the deployment of our third supercomputer, the Param 10000 version, in Russia. The supercomputer has scientific application features including fluid dynamics and environment monitoring,” RK Arora, executive director of government’s Research and development unit, Center for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC) said.
The latest supercomputer was sold to Russian Academy of Science’s Institute for Computer Aided Design for about Rs20 million ($436,777), Arora said.
The order for sale of the 16 processor Param series of supercomputer had been made by Russia in December last year under a commercial contract, he added.
Pune-based CDAC developer of Param series of supercomputers has already sold two such application intensive machines to Russia and Singapore. CDAC, which recently launched the Param Anant range of cost effective supercomputers, has also chalked out a new marketing strategy to sell the machines in India.
