India is all set to get a great boost in the field of technology as 10 green supercomputers would be installed in the country in a course of 3 years. The new computers will not only give a significant boost to the computing performance but also will make a sharp reduction on the power consumption, said a Center for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) scientist.
Computers to be launched in phases
Confirming the news to IANS, the associate director and head of the High Performance Computing, C-DAC, Pune, Sanjay Wandhekar said that they have plans for installing at least five to ten supercomputers in this year and the rest would be introduced in phases in the the coming three years.
According to the reports, the supercomputer machines planned for installation in the coming days are developed under the National Supercomputing Mission worth Rs. 4,500 crores. Being a crucial mission for the development of the country, it is jointly handled by information technology, electronics science as well as technology departments.
India to enter green computing list
As of now, 11 machines from India have entered the world’s 500 most powerful supercomputer list, out of which 2 are in the top 100 list. Once the 73 supercomputers are installed, India will also make its place in the list of Top 500 green computing, which is indeed a great achievement.
