Bangalore: Wipro Infotech, the India, Middle East and Asia Pacific IT business unit of Wipro Ltd, on 13 September announced the launch of Wipro Supernova -- a range of supercomputers and superstorage in India.
Wipro is building Supernova grounds up in India in exclusive partnership with Z RESEARCH, Inc., a California-based organisation specialised in commoditising supercomputers and superstorage.
Supernova includes a complete range of supercomputers with an entry level configuration delivering one trillion mathematical calculations per second going up to hundred thousand trillions of calculations per second and superstorage scaling to multiple hundred petabytes, company officials said.
