    PARAM Supercomputer among the most power efficient systems in world
    By IANS | 1 Jan, 2014, 07.36PM IST


    NEW DELHI: India's supercomputer PARAM Yuva II, developed by the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), has been ranked first in India, ninth in the Asia Pacific Region and 44th in the world among the most power efficient computer systems as per the Green500 List announced at the Supercomputing Conference (SC 2013) in Denver, Colorado, in the US, an official release said here Wednesday.

    Supercomputers, in general, consume a lot of electrical power and produce much heat that necessitates elaborate cooling facilities to ensure proper operation. This adds to increase in the total cost of ownership (TCO) of a supercomputer. To draw focus towards development of energy efficient supercomputers, Green500 ranks computer systems in the world according to compute performance per watt, thus providing a world ranking based on energy efficiency.

    Kapil Sibal, minister for communications and information technology, said supercomputing is very important for all-round advancement in the country, and the government is planning a big impetus for capacity-building and advanced research and development in this area.

    He said he would expect many more contributions from C-DAC, as a key player in this endeavour.

    If each of the top university in India can build and develop its own super computer with help of CDAC, It can not only help the students and the universities but the nation as a whole.

    Super computer is cluster of computers with an operating system that ensures that each node performs the task at highest efficiency. Thus each university develops its own super computer in sort of competition to each other, to be faster and efficient, and this computational power can be rented out to industries. So that top industrial giants can come, use and keep funding the projects. This rent and funds can be used for maintaining and further developing the super computers.

    Further super computers can be linked together (if it is possible) to provide a higher computational power which can be used by industry and universities for higher level of simulations.
    thus the entire

    My thinking is that India should provide one peta powered supercomputer to every university of the country to help them develop a culture of R&D and computer simulations which can be done in all fields nowadays

    one super computer each to all state governments for E-governance initiatives which will be backed by IVR, SMS and Call centre based systems and processes

    Five supercomputers to The judiciary ( court systems ) - regional hubs - to enable electronic filing of cases and suits, storage and retreival of past judgements - in short online judiciary type system

    And of course all these comes after we equip BARC, DRDO, HAL, NAL, Railways, IMD, Army, Navy and IAF with supercomputers for thier needs

    THis is the just the begining scenario
