Eurotech, a leading provider of embedded and supercomputing technologies, will present tomorrow the installation in CINECA of the Eurora supercomputer, which ranks as the world’s most energy efficient high-performance computing system based on measurements taken following the Green500 guidelines.
Eurora serves as the base technology for the development of the PRACE 2IP co-funded prototype, a project with the same name “Eurora” led by the CINECA supercomputing center in Italy. CINECA will deploy the Eurora prototype to advance research and discovery in the fields of computational sciences, including fundamental constituents of matter, condensed matter, astrophysics, the life sciences, and Earth sciences.
The Eurora supercomputer is accelerated by NVIDIA® Tesla® K20 GPU accelerators based on NVIDIA Kepler™. Eurora provides the base for the commercial Eurotech Aurora Tigon, expanding the Eurotech Aurora supercomputer product line to include new energy-efficient, high-performance GPU-accelerated systems.
Eurotech (eurotech.com) is a global company with a strong international focus: born and still headquartered in Italy, it has operating locations in Europe, North America and Japan.
Our roots are in the field of embedded computers. We began by addressing the challenge of real-time control of machines: from day one we knew that the right answer delivered too late becomes the wrong answer, so we learned how to ensure accuracy and reliability together with timely delivery of information.
