While I usually do not repeat press releases in my blog, this one I do since we all are a little proud of the achievement: RWTH Aachen University orders Bull supercomputer to support its scientific, industrial and environmental research. Getting this system was a lot of work, and preparing for it still is. The compute power of that machine totals 300 Teraflops. The focus of our center is not just running this machine, but to provide HPC-specific support and to ensure efficient operation. We are confident that in Bull we found a competent partner to investigate these and other topcis in close collaboration.
