Erster Modularer Supercomputer weltweit geht am Forschungszentrum Jülich in Betrieb
First Modular Supercomputer worldwide starts operation
Jülich, 13 November – The second module of JURECA is as large as an entire supercomputer: the booster is accommodated across 33 cabinets in the computer hall. Thanks to the additional 5 petaflop/second - equivalent to 5 billion computing operations per second - the Jülich supercomputer now appears as one of the fastest computers in Europe on the TOP500 list of the fastest computers in the world. Above all, this is the first time that a modular supercomputer has gone into productive operation worldwide.
