India’s First 1.3 Peta Flop HPC Facility

High-Performance Computation based R&D in India is going to witness a new phase with the setting up of India’s first state-of-the-art 1.3 PetaFlop High-Performance Computing facility and datacenter ecosystem at IIT Kharagpur under the National Supercomputing Mission (NSM). The Institute signed an MoU with the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), an autonomous Scientific Society of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Government of India on March 12. 2019 towards this effect. C-DAC would facilitate supply, installation, commissioning and operations of state-of-the-art HPC facility along with Data Center ecosystem at IIT Kharagpur funded under the NSM project.
