Eye-witness account. Philippe Lachamp, Director of the Helios project, looks back on the outstanding achievement of Bull’s teams in Rokkasho: implementing one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, starting with a blank canvas, in few months. Expertise, commitment and team spirit were at the heart of this extraordinary success story.
Designed and implemented by Bull at the TGCC data center near Paris, CURIE is one of Europe’s most powerful supercomputers, delivering 2 Petaflops. Developed for GENCI as part of the PRACE program, it will enable French and European researchers to tackle huge scientific challenges, in areas such as astrophysics, life sciences and climatology.
