Cutting edge liquid cooling & GPU accelerator enable Italy’s Top Supercomputing Center to Leapfrog Current Green 500 No. 1 system
Amaro (Italy) – January 29, 2013 – Eurotech, a leading provider of embedded and supercomputing technologies, will present tomorrow the installation in CINECA of the Eurora supercomputer, which ranks as the world’s most energy efficient high-performance computing system based on measurements taken following the Green500 guidelines.
Eurora serves as the base technology for the development of the PRACE 2IP co-funded prototype, a project with the same name “Eurora” led by the CINECA supercomputing center in Italy. CINECA will deploy the Eurora prototype to advance research and discovery in the fields of computational sciences, including fundamental constituents of matter, condensed matter, astrophysics, the life sciences, and Earth sciences.
The Eurora supercomputer is accelerated by NVIDIA® Tesla® K20 GPU accelerators based on NVIDIA Kepler™. Eurora provides the base for the commercial Eurotech Aurora Tigon , expanding the Eurotech Aurora supercomputer product line to include new energy-efficient, high-performance GPU-accelerated systems.
