Supercomputer JUWELS

In July 2018, the first module of JSC's current HPC system JUWELS (Jülich Wizard for European Leadership Science) went officially into operation at JSC. JUWELS features a versatile cluster architecture based on commodity multi-core CPUs, delivering a Linpack-performance of 6.2 petaflops (Rmax) and a theoretical peak performance of 12 petaflops. It consists of about 2,550 compute nodes with two Intel Xeon 24-core Skylake CPUs each, and about two percent of the compute nodes feature four of the latest-generation NVIDIA Volta GPUs.
