PARAM Supercomputer Most Powerful

India's supercomputer PARAM Yuva II, developed by the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), has been positioned 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 revealed at the Supercomputing Conference (SC 2013) in Denver, Colorado, in the US, an official release said here Wednesday. Supercomputers, in general, use up a lot of electrical power and create much heat that necessitates convoluted cooling facilities to make sure proper operation. This adds to boost in the total cost of ownership (TCO) of a supercomputer. To draw spotlight 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 competence. Kapil Sibal, minister for communications and information technology, said supercomputing is very significant for all-round advancement in the nation, and the government is planning a big impetus for capacity-building and advanced research and development in this area. He said he would anticipate many more contributions from C-DAC, as a key player in this effort.
