ROMEO : efficiency at the TOP

Posted on 09 January 2014 by Pierre Picard

The University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne is proud to be ranked 5th in the latest Green500 list published during the SC Conference in Denver.

The ROMEO supercomputer is available for both industrial and academic researchers in the Reims Champagne-Ardenne Region, along with a panoply of services, including secured storage, software and support, as well as in-depth expertise in different engineering fields: HPC, applied mathematics, physics, biophysics and chemistry.

The ROMEO supercomputer is the most powerful GPU-accelerated cluster in France and also one of the greenest supercomputers in the world according to the latest Green500 list.
Powered by 260 NVIDIA® Tesla® GPU accelerators housed in 130 bullx servers, the supercomputer delivers 254.9 Tflops and features a free-cooling system based on the Bull Cool Cabinet Door.

To herald the full hybrid cluster, the ROMEO HPC Center launched the ROMEO challenge “Exceed the limits”. This challenge is an opportunity to overcome all the usual limitations and to test out the new Tesla K20X GPU-based cluster. It is open to all European researchers and companies. 5 million computing hours will be allocated to projects that can exploit a significant portion, or the totality, of this unique scientific platform, after selection by the ROMEO Scientific Committee.
