Jean-Michel Alimi Research Director at CNRS November 20, 2013 Winners of the Bull-Joseph Fourier Prize 2012, Jean-Michel Alimi and his team on the DEUS project ran the very first simulation of the entire observable Universe in the CURIE supercomputer at GENCI. The cosmologist – a Research Director at CNRS – looks back on this scientific milestone, which is also a major technological achievement.

CSC deploys an energy-efficient Bull supercomputer CSC deploys an energy-efficient Bull supercomputer

CSC- IT Center for Science is deploying a highly energy-efficient supercomputer. The system is built by Bull and co-funded by the European PRACE project. It will be installed in CSC’s datacenter in Kajaani. CSC will use the system in collaboration with Finnish researchers and the PRACE community to leverage the latest processing technologies from Intel and Nvidia.

GPUs on their own are not enough… GPUs on their own are not enough…

Jean-Pierre Panziera, HPC Technical Director, Bull. Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) have been used in High-Performance Computing for a decade now. On paper, they offer great advantages in terms of energy efficiency, but the problem of porting applications to these kinds of nodes has not yet been fully resolved.
