QPACE - Quantum Chromodynamics Parallel Computing on the Cell
QPACE (Quantum Chromodynamics Parallel Computing on the Cell) is a massively parallel and scalable computer architecture optimized for lattice quantum chromodynamics (LQCD). It has been developed in cooperation between several academic institutions (SFB TR 55 under the leadership of the University of Regensburg) and the IBM development laboratory in Böblingen, Germany.
This system was taken out of operation on 4 October 2016. It will be replaced by a new modern and more energy-efficient system - called QPACE3 - in the last quarter of 2016.
The QPACE system is available for selected QCD projects.
