Europe’s Exascale Supercomputer in Its Starting Blocks
EuroHPC JU and the German-French supercomputer consortium ParTec-Eviden, led by Eviden, have signed a contract for the construction of JUPITER. JUPITER will be the first exascale supercomputer in Europe and hosted at Forschungszentrum Jülich in the German state of North Rhine Westphalia. The system, designed for largest possible simulations and AI applications in science and industry alike, is expected to launch in 2024. Owned by the European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU), it will be operated by the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), one of the three national supercomputing centers of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS).
