JURECA System at JSCJülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), the coordinator of the DEEP and DEEP-ER projects, announced plans today to develop and deploy a next-generation modular supercomputing system. To achieve this, JSC and partners Intel and ParTec – also part of the consortium, leverage the experience and results gained in the projects. The group will develop the necessary mechanisms required to augment JSC’s JURECA Cluster with a highly-scalable component named “Booster”. It will be based on Intel’s Scalable Systems Framework (Intel SSF) and is supposed to achieve a peak performance of 5 PFLOP/s. The JURECA Booster will be directly connected to the JURECA Cluster, and both modules will be operated as a single system.

“This will be the first-ever demonstration in a production environment of the Cluster-Booster concept, pioneered in DEEP and DEEP-ER at prototype-level, and a considerable step towards the implementation of JSC’s modular supercomputing concept”, explains Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre.
