About Super Computing Centre
Super Computing Centre was inaugurated by the Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on 19th February, 2019, under National Super Computer Mission. This is the first super computer developed and installed under this mission (launched in 2015 as part of Make in India initiative) in India by MeitY.
It is named appropriately as PARAM SHIVAY as being first in the series and in the holy city of Varanasi (land of Baba Vishwanath).


  • PARAM Shivay has helped me to carry out the simulations of the real-time dynamics with the photo- absorption in the larger systems of the transition-metal dichalcogenide nanoflakes, which otherwise would not have been possible. We are deeply grateful to the support team of PARAM Shivay for everything. We are deeply indebted to CDAC for all their support towards our project. CDAC, Pune has been an instrumental support to many computational Scientists in their active pursuit of Research.

  • PARAM Shivay is helping me immeasurably in guiding my Ph.D. students (research group) on a wide range of research problems. The helpdesk has answered back with great prompt attitude in installing different programs & modules required by us from time to time. In short, helpdesk has been extraordinarily supportive. We owe the deepest debt of gratitude to the team of PARAM Shivay. PARAM Shivay is doing a magnificent job in helping Computational Scientists across India in their active pursuit of research. I would like to appeal to the Department of Science and Technology, India to allocate substantial funds to CDAC, Pune and PARAM-Shivay team to support them strongly in their future endeavors, which may include upgrading their HPC systems from time to time.

  • PARAM Shivay supercomputer facility of IIT BHU has helped me a lot in pursuing my research work. The molecular docking studies on the target biological macro molecules especially proteins narrow down the search for suitable ligand molecules that can interact well with the receptor and either stabilize it or modify its activity or function. Molecular dynamics simulation mimics the cell condition and thus validates the in-silico experiments. Such studies save the time, energy, and resources of the researchers for the actual wet-lab experiments. They speed up the drug discovery process and have immense application in the medical field. I am grateful to the PARAM Shivay support team for solving any issues during simulation studies. The helping desk members are always prompt in their actions.

  • PARAM Shivay has been of immense benefit to my PhD students and researchers in my lab. My research area is deep learning and without the access to PARAM Shivay system, many of the articles that are currently under review would not have seen the light of the day. The PARAM Shivay facility has been one of the best managed facility I have every come across. The helpdesk responds promptly to any query and provide support to the maximum extent possible. I am also grateful for the team for helping with resolving space related issues while using the facility. We owe the deepest gratitude to the entire PARAM Shivay team at CDAC Pune and IITBHU.CDAC Pune has been at the forefront of HPC in the country. They have for many years helped computational scientists all over the county in the active pursuit of research. I cannot imagine conducting high quality research on modern machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies without the activity support provided by the PARAM Shivay team. The facility is outstanding and perhaps even better than some of the commercially available resources that are super expensive! CDAC Pune should be commended for rising up to the challenge and providing a stable and economical solution. The division at Pune is in dire need of a strong support from Govt. of India, and being a regular user of their systems, I would urge for their support in the best possible way. I sincerely hope that CDAC Pune will deploy more such solutions across the country for the benefit of the larger research community.

  • High performance computation is an essential platform for both science and technology research at present age, every premier institute around the world offers such facilities to the in-house researchers. Param Shivay is one of such major facilities which caters to users from the Institute as well as from outside. In view of growing demand and usage, it is necessary to upgrade such an important facility after a period of four to five years. I would like to suggest for more GPU based HPC systems which will enhance the computational resources of Param Shivay. Also, if the support team helps users in parallel programming or software in parallel mode, the users will greatly benefit from it
    Prof. Debaprasad Giri, IIT-BHU, Mr. Dibyajyoti Mohanta, Research Scholar, IIT-BHU
  • High end specifications of Param-Shivay like 40 core/Node is greatly helpful. The support team has been active whenever needs arise like software installations etc. Param-Shivay is definitely a big contributor towards my scientific research Pursuit. National Supercomputing Mission: (NSM) has, greatly, encouraged young researchers in India to pursue research in the domain of theoretical science by providing a good computing facility like Param-Shivay. We would like to request Govt. of India to allocate more funds towards the maintenance of existing clusters along with establishing new ones. We are constantly trying our best to contribute to science by exploring the unexplored through good publications.
