PRACE proudly announces the 4 European systems ranked in the top 10 of the Top500 list: SuperMUC at #4, FERMI at #7, JUQUEEN at #8 and CURIE thin nodes at #9.
With the installation of FERMI, the new BG/Q supercomputing system, CINECA by mandate of Italian Ministry of Education University and Research, becomes PRACE Tier-0 hosting site as from the PRACE roadmap. The CINECA Scientific Committee for PRACE, up to now an informal body, became for the decision of the CINECA Board of Directors an institutional body.
The installation plan of our new system FERMI, the IMB BG/Q, is now available. We are glad to provide you with precise dates about the next steps.
PRACE Research Infrastructure: the top level of the European HPC ecosystem. The PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe) offers access to computing and data management resources at partner sites hosting PRACE systems with expertise distributed throughout Europe at PRACE member representative sites.
FERMI is the new supercomputing system in CINECA. This new system, based on IBM BG/Q architecture, is currently being installed and will become fully operational this summer.
