History of Supercomputing in India

India had faced difficulties in the 1980s when trying to purchase Supercomputers for academic and weather forecasting purposes.In 1987 the Indian Government had requested to purchase a Cray X-MP Supercomputer; this request was denied by the United States government as the machine could have a dual use in weapons development.[8] After this problem, in the same year, the Government of India decided to promote an indigenous Supercomputer development programme.

The Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) was created at some point between November 1987 and August 1988. C-DAC was given an initial 3 year budget of Rs375 million to create a 1000MFLOPS (1GFLOPS) Supercomputer by 1991. C-DAC unveiled the PARAM 8000 Supercomputer in 1991. This was followed by the PARAM 8600 in 1992/1993. These machines demonstrated to the world Indian technological prowess and led to export success.

National Supercomputing Mission

The National Supercomputing Mission was launched to enhance the research capacities and capabilities in the country by connecting them to form a Supercomputing grid, with National Knowledge Network (NKN) as the backbone. The NSM is setting up a grid of supercomputing facilities in academic and research institutions across the country.
