Bull Builds Supercomputer for German HPC Center
Germany's leading high-performance computing center Forschungszentrum Julich and French IT systems company Bull have announced an agreement to build a 200 Teraflops supercomputer.
The supercomputer will combine Bull NovaScale servers and Sun blade servers based on Intel Xeon Nehalem processors, HPC cluster software from Partec, and a high-performance I/O system based on a Sun ZFS/Lustre file system. It is expected to be deployed at the beginning of 2009 when it will be integrated with Julich's datacenter network.
