In this video from ISC 2015, Estela Suarez from the DEEP project describes the progress her team has made in the past year. DEEP is an Exascale project funded by the EU 7th framework program. The main goal is to develop a novel, Exascale-enabling supercomputing platform.
On July 14, 2015, Eurotech announced the installation of the DEEP “Booster”, a tightly coupled cluster of manycore coprocessors, at Jülich Supercomputing Centre. This novel and highly-scalable HPC system completes the Exascale-enabling DEEP System. This prototype is based on the Cluster-Booster architecture and has been developed within the research project DEEP. With this delivery, the DEEP consortium can leverage a supercomputer with a peak performance of 505 TFlop/s and an efficiency of over 3 GFlop/s per Watt. The Eurotech hot water cooling solution allows for additional permanent gains in energy efficiency at data centre level as it guarantees year-round free cooling in all climate zones. The system includes a matching innovative software stack, and six carefully selected grand challenge simulation applications have been optimized to show the full performance potential of the system.”
