JUGENE was the top system of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre until it was upgraded to become JUQUEEN. JUGENE had the performance of one petaflop/s, which is one trillion arithmetic operations per second: 1 000 000 000 000 000. Such power is required for complex computational tasks, for example to compute how protein molecules could have originated more than four billion years ago.

Inauguration of JUGENE, JUROPA and HPC-FF

The petaflop computer JUGENE, the cluster computer JUROPA, and the High Performance Computer for Fusion HPC-FF were inaugurated in May 2009. The Federal Minister for Education and Research, Prof. Dr. Annette Schavan, and the then Prime Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia, Dr. Jürgen Rüttgers took part in the ceremony.

Upgrading JUGENE

The 2009 upgrade of JUGENE to a performance of one petaflop/s included not only the computer's hardware components, but also the installment of new energy supply lines and a water cooling system to prevent JUGENE from overheating whilst in operation.
