GUWAHATI: Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), Pune to ascertain Rs. 17 crore value of 650TF Supercomputing Facility beneath the National Supercomputing Mission (NSM).

The MoU has been signed for a interval of 5 years. This system will include 10 grasp/service nodes, 107 CPU solely compute nodes, 10 GPU nodes and 39 High Memory CPU solely compute nodes.

A supercomputer is a pc that has very excessive velocity in its operation and better reminiscence. This supercomputing system can carry out assigned duties together with a number of duties at very excessive speeds than another regular private pc (PC) and in lots of instances are in a position to function at speeds which might be tens of millions of occasions quicker than abnormal PCs.

The MoU was signed by T.G. Sitharam, Director, IIT Guwahati, and Dr. Hemant Darbari, Director General, C-DAC, India, throughout a digital occasion within the presence of Sanjay Dhotre, Union Minister of State for Education, Communications and Electronics & Information Technology, Government of India.

IIT said that utilizing the Supercomputing facility, the Institute will give attention to quantum turbulence, instabilities and turbulence in thermal convection and MHD, supercooled liquid and glasses; reactivity of high-valent steel intermediates; computational examine of polymer-composites, membranes, poly electrolytes, granular flows; NLP, medical textual content mining, Machine Learning and its software in computational biology, Deep Learning; and Computational Social Systems areas of analysis.

The new Supercomputer at IIT Guwahati with 650 TFLOPS is extra highly effective and a technologically superior facility, which is able to play an essential function within the subject of scientific and engineering purposes comparable to quantum mechanics, local weather analysis, oil and fuel exploration, molecular modelling, climate forecasting, spacecraft aerodynamics, computational methods biology and detonation simulations together with the dealing with of enormous databases utilizing Artificial intelligence fashions.

Sitharaman stated, “Computer and Communication Centre is already equipped with Param Ishan, the 250 TF supercomputer that the Institute has had for four years now. The Centre will also house the new supercomputer. IIT Guwahati plans to turn this Computer and Communication Centre into an Academic Centre. It will amalgamate with the newly planned Department of Data Sciences and Knowledge Engineering. About 80 faculty members and 600 students of IIT Guwahati are active users of Param Ishan and are eagerly waiting for the new system to become available”.

IIT Guwahati will set up coaching programs to popularise the use and purposes of supercomputers within the northeastern area and different main missions of the Government of India. IIT Guwahati can also be planning to hyperlink this facility with our new interdisciplinary grasp programme on information sciences collectively initiated by the Departments of Electronics & Electrical Engineering, Computer Science & Engineering and Mathematics

C-DAC, Pune, will set up the Supercomputing facility utilizing the constructing strategy of NSM in IIT Guwahati, which is able to present essential Data Centre house, energy with again up, cooling, and so forth. for the ability. This new hybrid Supercomputing system is not going to solely enhance the HPC usages and analysis surroundings within the Institute but in addition improve the analysis functionality of the Northeast Region.
