Mellanox FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand accelerates the fastest supercomputer in India

19 Feb 2013 Sunnyvale - India's Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) utilizes Mellanox's end-to-end FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand solution to provide server and storage application performance for PARAM Yuva - II; India's fastest supercomputer. C-DAC is the premier R&D organisation of the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), Ministry of Communications & Information Technology (MCIT) for carrying out R&D in IT, electronics and associated areas.

Launched on February 8th, PARAM Yuva - II provides more than half a Petaflop of raw compute power using hybrid compute technology with compute co-processor and hardware accelerators. C-DAC chose Mellanox's robust, high-speed interconnect solution due to its performance, scalability, low power consumption, and high-efficiency data handling.

"C-DAC's HPC programmes are focused towards creating an eco-system to derive full benefits from HPC systems to address grand challenge problems and advancing fundamental science, research and industrial competitiveness", stated Dr. Pradeep Sinha, Senior Director, High Performance Computing at C-DAC. "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."

"Providing India's scientists with more computing power to conduct research will lead to more scientific breakthroughs for the nation and the rest of the world", stated Marc Sultzbaugh, senior vice president of worldwide sales at Mellanox Technologies. "Our FDR InfiniBand solution provides India's scientists with the performance, scalability and efficiency needed to meet the requirements of research workloads and simulations today and into the future."

The cluster was built in conjunction with Netweb Technologies using Tyrone-based servers.
