1st PCP pilot JULIA now available at Jülich Supercomputing Centre

JULIA is one of the two pioneering pilot systems developed by Cray in the Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) process that took place during the HBP Ramp-up Phase. The system is located at Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Germany, and is now available for use!

The key technologies used for the Cray pilot system are:

  • KNL-based compute nodes
  • 100 Gbps network technology (Omni-Path)
  • NVRAM technologies
  • Coherent software stack.

Pre-Commercial Procurement involves obtaining the research and development of new, innovative solutions before they become commercially available. Detailed information on PCP is provided by the European Commission here.

Julia is maintained by the HBP's High Performance Analytics and Computing Platform.
