Do you know “Pune supercomputers among world’s fastest”?
At the 2013 International Supercomputing Conference held in Leipzig, Germany, on June 18, 2013, a list of the world’s 500 fastest supercomputers was announced. Two of Pune’s supercomputers, ranked 36th and 69th, feature in the top 100. Of the two, ParamYuva II (ranked 69) was developed by the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) and became operational in February 2013. With a capacity for 524 teraflops, within three weeks of its launch, it was running at 70 percent of its capacity. ParamYuva II can be utilised for faster tapping of natural resources in the sea, designing of customised drugs, and for precise weather forecasting.
The Supercomputer ranked 36th in Leipzig was developed by the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM).
