Article By : VVDN Technologies

VVDN Technologies has signed a contract with C-DAC for the manufacture of RUDRA, India's first indigenously designed HPC servers.

VVDN Technologies has signed a contract with the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), a premier R&D organization of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), for manufacturing of India’s first indigenously designed high-performance computing (HPC) servers “RUDRA”.

Designed by C-DAC, the RUDRA HPC servers will be manufactured by VVDN under the National Supercomputing Mission (NSM) and are planned to be used in C-DAC’s ‘PARAM’ series of supercomputers. A wide spectrum of sectors, including high-performance computing (HPC) systems, hyperscale data centers, edge computing, banking and commerce, manufacturing, oil and gas industry, and healthcare, can benefit from the indigenously-built server.

VVDN has established a complete manufacturing setup with SMT lines capable of handling board sizes up to 850-by-560mm. The company also has a big mechanical infrastructure with tooling and injection molding, sheet metal fabrication, dedicated assembly lines, robust testing, validation, and reliability setup. VVDN comes with expertise in the design, development, and manufacturing of servers such as rack storage servers, and communication servers, among others. While working in the data center space, VVDN has its own IPs for OvS and SSL for network computing.

Recently, VVDN was approved under the PLI scheme for IT Hardware which includes the manufacturing of servers, laptops, tablets, all-in-one desktops, etc. VVDN has also been approved under three other PLIs by the Government of India in the space of telecom and networking equipment manufacturing, white goods manufacturing, and automobile and auto components manufacturing.

“It is a matter of great pride for VVDN to do the manufacturing of RUDRA 1U and 2U HPC servers—India’s first ever indigenous designed server for CDAC. VVDN is deeply committed to doing server manufacturing in India and has set up best-in-class infrastructure to do end-to-end manufacturing including PCBA, mechanical-sheet metal fabrication, testing & validation as well as certification. This collaboration with CDAC is the testimony of the advancement towards strengthening Indian research and development by doing indigenous design, development, manufacturing, and deployment of cost-effective servers which can be called DESIGN and MAKE in INDIA,” said Nitin Jain, VP-Business Development 5G & Datacenter, India and EMEA, VVDN Technologies.
