The SGI supercomputer will provide the center with theoretical performance at 2 petaflops, exceeding the performance of the current Anselm supercomputer by nearly 20 times. The large cluster, which will be put into operation in 2015, will be among the 50 largest supercomputers in the world, and will become the largest Intel(r) Xeon Phi(tm) coprocessor-based cluster in Europe.

This SGI(r) ICE(tm) XA solution will have 1,008 compute nodes and 129 terabytes (TB) of RAM. It will feature 864 Intel(r) Xeon Phi(tm) 7120 coprocessors cards with 52,704 cores and 13.8 TB of RAM.

The storage will be two petabytes (PB) of disk-based solutions and three PB of tape backup. As a result of this advanced technology, the new supercomputer will be able to provide more precise simulations and modelling, as well as handle more workloads simultaneously than the Center’s previous solution.
