Pratyush India’s Fastest Supercomputer.
A supercomputer is a complex machine that works thousand times better than a personal computer system. They are made for arithmetic functioning, weather forecasting, genetic analysis, and code breaking. They are made with numerous microprocessors and arrays of specific memory data. It is said to be the fastest working machine at any given task. They are mostly used in the field of research and study analysis.
India is proving to be a fast developing nation improving dexterity in fields related to Science and Technology. Supercomputing was first introduced in India in the year 1991 by Centre for development of Advanced Computing.
Since the beginning of supercomputing in India, there has been no going back.
The industry has been rising to levels of being recognized not only nationally but also globally, with this the supercomputer PRATYUSH has been introduced into the current Indian supercomputing scenario. It has been developed with specific objectives to the Indian weather forecasting and climatic analyzing.
Pratyush is the brain-child Petaflop India’s Fastest Supercomputer structured by India. Pratyush an array of computers that can bear/assist and control a peak power of 6.8 petaflops.
Pratyush is the 4th fastest supercomputer also its India’s Fastest Supercomputer in the world made conscientious for weather and climate research and ensures computing machines in Japan, USA, and the United Kingdom. It will also compel an Indian supercomputer from the 300s to the 30s in the Top500 list, a renowned international automated tracker of the world’s fastest supercomputers.
Pratyush was developed and tested in the laboratories of IITM (Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology), Pune. The supercomputers will be utilized at two technical government institutes: The first model 4.0 petaflops High-Performance Computer at IITM, Pune; and the second developed supercomputer 2.8.
The government approved a budget of ₹400 crore in 2017 to develop a 10-petaflop India’s Fastest Supercomputer. A vital function of the machine’s computer programming power is to run the forecasting of rain using a vigorous and active model. For this to process, the software replicates and models the weather for a given month — take for example May — and letting a modified model determines how the actual weather will act and indicates the changes throughout over the upcoming months of June, July, August, etc.
Working on the newly developed system, it would make forecasting of the expected rains or any other natural occurrences to map regions in India at a resolution of 3 km and around the globe at 12 km.
Termed “Pratyush,” that means the sun(the ultimate giver of light),
Union Science Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan declared Pratyush would be India’s “premier” HPC (high-performance computing) and was a step up from India’s current peak capacity of 1.0 PF.
In conclusion, dedicated India’s fastest and first “multi-petaflops” supercomputer to the nation.
The IITM release also sums up the content saying that this supercomputer would help the country in figuring out and controlling the outcomes with better forecasts concerning monsoon, and in various other occurrences of natural.
calamities or extreme events such as tsunamis, cyclones, earthquakes, air quality, lightning, fishing, hot and cold waves, flood and India is challenging itself and proving itself in every possible field and technology is on the developing growth stage here.
With the rapidly changing climate, the increasing unpredictability of Monsoon, frequent cyclones, earthquakes, etc. technological advancement especially in the field to weather forecasting and catastrophic events is a significant step and will empower India and help the world in saving a lot of lives.
