Bright Computing announced this morning that the University of Frankfurt has selected their Bright Cluster Manager management stack to support the new machine at the Goethe University’s Hessian high-performance computer organization (HHLR-GU). The machine, called “LOEWE-CSC”, has 20,784 processor cores plus 772 GPGPU hardware accelerators. Overall theoretical peak stands around 599 TF [double precision].
This supercomputer represents a new era for high-performance computing at the University of Frankfurt. The LOEWE-CSC supercomputer will allow us to run a large range of scientific applications at an unprecedented scale, but also at a ground-breaking performance-to-power-consumption ratio,” said professor Volker Lindenstruth, Chair of HPC Architecture at the Goethe University. “We are pleased to run Bright Cluster Manager on the LOEWE-CSC system because it has already proven itself on another TOP500-class supercomputer at our university.”
