India’s Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) utilizes Mellanox’s FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand solution to provide leading server and storage application performance for PARAM Yuva – II; India’s fastest supercomputer. C-DAC is a government owned research center under Ministry of Communications & Information Technology (MCIT) in India.
PARAM Yuva – II WAS Launched on February 8th, and provides more than half a Petaflop of raw compute power using hybrid compute technology with compute co-processor and hardware accelerators. The cluster was built in conjunction with Netweb Technologies using Tyrone-based servers.
Dr. Pradeep Sinha, Senior Director, High Performance Computing at C-DAC, said: “Utilizing Mellanox FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand interconnect solutions, the new PARAM Yuva – II cluster can provide our users with superior application performance to further research and development.”
