|Abstract:||This poster aims to present India’s key computational research sectors and its journey through the supercomputing road to fulfill the national research needs. In late 1980s due to difficulties in importing powerful computers, Indian Government launched five national initiatives to develop India’s own supercomputer in the gigaflops range resulting in indigenous development of Flosolver, Anupam, PACE, CHIPPS, PARAM 8000 parallel machines. India is among the few leading countries in the world that have instantiated the supercomputing regime.
Recent HPC Activities in India
India is gearing up to make a strong come-back in the supercomputing race. With an aim to build computational capacity of exascale, concerted efforts by various premier research and academic institutes will play a pivotal role.
