Supercomputer JURECA

Computing Power for Research

Researchers from all disciplines make use of supercomputers in order to discover how the climate is changing, how proteins are folded in cells, how new semiconductors function or how fuel cells can be improved. Jülich’s approach is to provide a system of complementary computers with a suitable platform for all applications.

Pilot Systems JULIA and JURON for Interactive Supercomputer

Two pilot systems for an interactive supercomputer are being tested at Jülich Supercomputing Centre. The systems – JULIA, created by CRAY, and JURON from IBM and NVIDIA – are specifically designed for applications in the neurosciences. The installation and test phase are part of a special procurement for the European Human Brain Project.
