JUPITER is about to develop into the primary European supercomputer to make the leap into the exascale period. This implies, it’ll be able to performing greater than an exaflop (or 1 quintillion) operations per second. In different phrases, the machine’s computing energy will surpass that of 5 million laptops or PCs mixed.

The European Excessive Efficiency Computing Joint Endeavor (EuroHPC JU), which is being behind the undertaking, has now signed a hosting agreement with the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) in Germany, the place JUPITER will probably be situated.

Beneath the phrases of the settlement, JUPITER (which stands for “Joint Endeavor Pioneer for Revolutionary and Transformative Exascale Analysis”) will probably be put in on the campus of the Forschungszentrum Jülich analysis institute in 2023. The machine will probably be operated by the JSC.

This new supercomputer will probably be backed by a €500million price range, break up equally between the EuroHPC JU and German federal and state sources.
