In the upcoming granting period the old JURECA Cluster Module will be replaced by its successor called JURECA-DC (data centric). For detailed specifications of the JURECA-DC Cluster Module please see the table below. The JURECA Booster Module will continue to be available as high-scalable module of the JURECA-DC system.


THE JURECA Booster Module

The JURECA Booster Module has a peak performance of 5 PFlop/s. It is available for all JARA researches.

Node characteristics

Available resources per call

  • One Intel Xeon Phi 7250-F Knights Landing CPU
  • 68 cores, 1.4 GHz
  • 96 GB per node node (~ 1.4 GB per core) +
    16 GB MCDRAM high-bandwidth memory
  • About 1640 nodes are available

180 million core-h*) or about 29000EFLOP*)

*) Contains about 100 million core-h (16000EFLOP) dedicated to applicants from FZJ


The JURECA Cluster Module

The new JURECA-DC Cluster Module consists of compute nodes with GPUs (GPU nodes) and without GPUs (CPU nodes).  Only researchers of the Forschungszentrum Jülich are eligible to apply for this module. The production start of the new module is currently scheduled for December 2020. Therefore, please allow for a transition period with smaller allocations at the beginning of the next granting period when planning your project.

Node type

Node characteristics

Available resources per call

CPU nodes
  • Two AMD EPYC Rome 7742 CPUs
  • 2 x 64 cores, 2.25 GHz per node
  • at least 512 GB main memory per node (~4 GB per core)

150 million core-h or about 19500 EFLOP

GPU nodes
  • Two AMD EPYC Rome 7742 CPUs
  • 2 x 64 cores, 2.25 GHz
  • 512 GB main memory per node (~4 GB per core)
  • Four NVIDIA A100 GPUs
  • 4 x 40 GB HBM2e memory
  • 192 nodes are available
45 million core-h or about 104500 EFLOP**)

**) Resources on GPU nodes are accounted in core-h of the host CPU, i.e. 128 core-h on JURECA-DC GPU nodes means using 1 node with four A100 GPUs for 1 hour.


The website with information about the configuration of the JURECA-DC system are currently in preparation.

JSC offers data projects in addition to computing time projects. For a fact sheet on data projects and the application form for data projects please see here. For further information on this please contact the user support (sc@fz-juelich.de) at JSC.
