Tags: Science and Technology

PARAM PORUL, a state-of-the art Supercomputer  was inaugurated on May 25, 2022 at NIT Tiruchirappalli.

  • It has been dedicated to the nation under the National Supercomputing Mission (NSM).

  • National Supercomputing Mission (NSM) is a joint initiative of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) and the Department of Science and Technology (DST). 

  • A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between NIT Tiruchirappalli and Center for Development in Advanced Computing (C-DAC) on 12 October 2020 to set up this 838 Teraflops supercomputing facility under NSM.

  • The system is equipped with a mix of CPU nodes, GPU nodes, high memory nodes, high storage and high performance Infiniband interconnects to meet the computing needs of various scientific and engineering applications.

  • It is based on direct contact liquid cooling technology to achieve high power utilisation effectiveness and thereby reduce operating costs.

  • This state-of-the-art computing system will prove to be of great importance to the research community.

  • Under NSM, so far 15 supercomputers with compute capacity of 24 petaflops have been installed across the country.

  • All these supercomputers are manufactured in India and are working with indigenously developed software stack.
