GARUDA -which takes its name from a large, bird-like creature in Hindu and Buddhist mythology-is a collaboration of researchers and experimenters aiming to establish a nationwide grid in India.

Currently in its proof of concept phase, GARUDA will link centers for computation, mass storage and scientific instruments to enable data and computing intensive science in India for the 21st century.

The GARUDA high-speed network will connect 45 institutions in 17 cities at 10 to 100 megabits per second bandwidth.

An interactive version of this map is available online.

The GARUDA project is coordinated by Center for Development of Advanced Computing. C-DAC is a partner of EUIndiaGrid project. Interoperability between GARUDA and EGEE infrastructure is a main goal of EUIndiagrid.
