High Performance Computing (HPC)

While the need and usefulness of High performance Supercomputing in Business as well as Scientific & Engineering Applications is unquestioned and is growing rapidly, it is not economically viable to have so many facilities. C-DAC (Centre for Development of Advanced Computing) has thus established "National PARAM Supercomputing Facility" to provide Supercomputing facility to various industries and other institutions that need such a facility to process their diverse applications.

Our Supercomputing software environment cosnsists of:

  • Parallel processing libraries based on MPI standard with debuggers
  • Parallel processing compilers for C, C++, Fortran languages with support to MPI standards
  • Highly optimized Mathematical Libraries suitable to the above system
  • System Management and Administration environment
  • Job scheduling and sequencing software for PARAM Upgradeable system
  • LINUX based file system with volume management and backup software
  • Networking and Security software’s for the facility

We have the following scientific applications for HPC facility:

  • Bioinformatics
  • Finite Element Analysis
  • Seismology
  • Materials Science
  • Climatology
  • Computational Chemistry
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics
We are working strongly on collaboration with different scientific organizations to identify priority areas for continuous research.
