La India is a country of contrasts as well as being the second most populous country and be the 12th world economy continues to have a high rate of poverty among the population as well as high rates of illiteracy and malnutrition. Indeed, yesterday we spent a few minutes to talk about these differences when the country's space agency announced an investment of $ 90 million to prepare an exploration mission to Mars , an ad that seeks to showcase the country's technological mastery and along said path, the country's government has announced a new technological challenge: the construction of the world's most powerful supercomputer .
In a plan that will run until 2017, the government of India has on the table an action plan that will require an investment of about 900 million dollars (870 million to be exact) to build a supercomputer 61 times more faster than the supercomputer known as the fastest of today (the Sequoia supercomputer Department of Energy of the United States). This project would put the country on top of the famous TOP500 list and it shows the whole country's technical capacity if, in the end, serve the purpose of building a supercomputer capable of working exaFLOPS level (one trillion operations floating point per second).
No one can deny that the project is ambitious and, of course, would place India as the undisputed leader in the field of supercomputing since, to date, occupying the No. 58 on the list of 500 most powerful supercomputers in the world ( which is dominated by systems of the U.S., China, Japan and Europe), a place that's carved in the country since 1987, the government decided to open the C-DAC (Center for Development of Advanced Computing) to acquire an infrastructure supercomputing own refusal to support more advanced countries in this technology.
From the point of view of technological and industrial development, a project of this caliber is an important lever for the business and technical-scientific in the country (with many possibilities of internationalization and export of know-how abroad), however, I The project requires a substantial financial investment that may be detrimental to other needs of the country would require immediate intervention of authorities.
