CSIR in month of July 2013 declared that, it is all set to launch its fastest supercomputer at India’s first ever big data science institute in Bangalore.
The launch of Super Computer by CSIR will mark its entry into the new field of data intensive scientific discovery. The supercomputer is supposed to have a speed of 360 tera flops, which will make it the fourth fastest country in the country and will be housed in by the CSIR Fourth Paradigm Institute (CSIR-4PI).
With the launch of Supercomputer, Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) is deciding to re-position its Bangalore-based Centre for Mathematical Modelling and Computer Simulation to deal with data intensive scientific discovery, which has came out as the fourth paradigm of science.
The supercomputer situated in the Bangalore-based 4PI will form the backbone of the new venture which will connect CSIR laboratories located in Delhi, Hyderabad, Pune, Srinagar, Chennai, Chandigarh, and Nagpur.
The laboratories based at these centers will have computing facilities between 10 and 50 tera flop capacity and is going to be linked to the supercomputer using the National Knowledge Network thus connecting 200 scientists and over 1000 students in the identified domain areas.
