HPE Wins Another European HPC Center With Cray EX Plus AMD Compute

Per aspera, ad astra, an old Latin adage that means “through striving, to the stars,” is the root of the name for a hybrid HPC and AI supercomputer that the Grand Équipment National de Calcul Intensif (GENCI), working in conjunction with the Centre Informatique National de l’Enseignement Supérieur (CINES), one of three national HPC centers in France, will be building next year to bring a factor of 20X more compute power to bear on scientific applications.


GENCI: Advancing HPC in France and Across Europe

One of the more significant efforts in Europe to address the challenges of the convergence of high performance computing (HPC), high performance data analytics (HPDA) and soon artificial intelligence (AI), and ensure that researchers are equipped and familiar with the latest technology, is happening in France at GENCI (Grand équipement national de calcul intensif).
