Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur is among the first academic institutions to receive a supercomputing facility of 1 Peta-flop computing power under the National Supercomputing Mission (NSM), which will usher new age research and innovation in the country. IIT Kharagpur is in the process of setting up a new Centre for Computational and Data Sciences (CCDS) around such a supercomputing platform to build, manage, and operate the high performance computing facility to provide large computational support to the users to carry out both Research and Teaching activities that involve state-of-the-art high performance computing (HPC).

“Faculty members and their research groups at IIT Kharagpur are engaged in research activities in several areas of national importance that require large computational (both hardware and software) support. The 1 Peta-Flop new system with both CPU and CPU-GPU based servers along with the already existing HPC equipment will provide about 1.
