Cray XC40 Hornet Supercomputer Scales to 96K Cores on Scientific Applications

Today GCS in Germany announced that their new Hornet supercomputer at HLRS is ready for extreme-scale computing challenges. “To test its mettle, Hornet successfully completed six “XXL-projects” from computationally demanding scientific fields such as planetary research, climatology, environmental chemistry, and aerospace. All six XXL Projects utilized all of Hornet’s available 94,646 compute cores–results that more than satisfied the HLRS HPC experts and scientific users.”
