Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX) (TASE: MLNX), a leading supplier
of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers
and storage systems, today announced that India’s Centre for Development of
Advanced Computing (C-DAC) utilizes Mellanox’s end-to-end FDR 56Gb/s
InfiniBand solution to provide leading server and storage application
performance for PARAM Yuva – II; India’s fastest supercomputer. C-DAC is the
premier R&D organization of the Department of Electronics and Information
Technology (DeitY), Ministry of Communications & Information Technology (MCIT)
for carrying out R&D in IT, electronics and associated areas.

Launched on February 8^th, PARAM Yuva – II provides more than half a Petaflop
of raw compute power using hybrid compute technology with compute co-processor
and hardware accelerators. C-DAC chose Mellanox’s robust, high-speed
interconnect solution due to its performance, scalability, low power
consumption, and high-efficiency data handling.

“C-DAC's HPC programs are focused towards creating an eco-system to derive
full benefits from HPC systems to address grand challenge problems and
advancing fundamental science, research and industrial competitiveness,” said
Dr. Pradeep Sinha, Senior Director, High Performance Computing at C-DAC.
“Utilizing Mellanox FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand interconnect solutions, the new
PARAM Yuva – II cluster can provide our users with superior application
performance to further research and development.”

“Providing India’s scientists with more computing power to conduct research
will lead to more scientific breakthroughs for the nation and the rest of the
world,” said Marc Sultzbaugh, senior vice president of worldwide sales at
Mellanox Technologies. “Our FDR InfiniBand solution provides India’s
scientists with the performance, scalability and efficiency needed to meet the
requirements of research workloads and simulations today and into the future.”

The cluster was built in conjunction with Netweb Technologies using
Tyrone-based servers.
