India is More Focused on Research and Development Using Own Super Computers


‪#‎India‬ to have 70 ‪#‎SuperComputers‬ by 2022. The super computer will help India do research in different fields ranging from climate, defence and other areas. The government has begun the process of having 70 super-computers in the country, which will enable high-level research in different fields for not only government agencies but also the private sector. The super-computer will help India do research in different fields ranging from climate, defence and other areas, which a normal computer is ill-equipped for.
The computer would have a capacity (speed) of half petaflop to 20 petaflop, but by the time the project reaches its full peak, the speed of the super-computers can go up to 50 petaflop. A ‪#‎petaflop‬ is a measure of a computer’s processing speed and can be expressed as a thousand trillion floating point operations per second.
“The project, which costs around Rs 4,500 crore is in its nascent stage. It will come up with association of the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Department of Information and Technology (DIT). These super-computers will be in different parts of country,” Ashutosh Sharma, Secretary of DST, said.
