NVIDIA Powers 22.4 Petaflop HPC4 Supercomputer at Eni

Oil & Gas giant Eni of Italy has expanded the computing capacity of their Green Data Center with a massive GPU-powered system called HPC4. Built by HPE, the 22.4 Petaflop supercomputer is powered  by 3,200 Tesla GPU accelerators. “Based in Ferrera Erbognone near Milan, HPC4 quadruples the company’s computational power and makes its HPC infrastructure the world’s most powerful industrial computing system today.”

Eni in Italy Launches 18.6 Petaflop HPC4 Supercomputer

Eni in Italy has launched its new HPC4 supercomputer. With a peak performance of 18.6 Petaflops, the HPC4 cluster from Hewlett Packard Enterprise quadruples the Company’s computing power, making it the world’s most powerful industrial system. “With HPC4 we are tracing the path for the use of exascale supercomputers in the energy sector that could revolutionize the way in which oil&gas activities are managed.”

Eni in Italy fires up 5.8 Petaflop HPC3 Cluster for Oil & Gas

During the first week of April, Eni fired up its new HPC cluster in the Green Data Center in Ferrera Erbognone, Italy. Known as HPC3, the new 5.8 Petaflop cluster will allow Eni to fully support all the activities in the Energy Exploration and Production sector. “The start-up of the new HPC3 supercomputer and its follow-on HPC4 will enable Eni to deploy the most advanced and sophisticated proprietary codes developed by our research for the E&P activities,” said Eni CEO Claudio Descalzi. “These technologies will provide Eni with unprecedented accuracy and resolution in seismic imaging, geological modeling and reservoir dynamic simulation, allowing us to further accelerate overall cycle times in the upstream process and to sustain the E&P performances.”
