CCRT Supercomputer Will be Dedicated to Scientific and Industrial Research
Designed Around Bull NovaScale(R) Servers, the Computer Will Deliver Performance in Excess of 43 Teraflops, Positioning it Among the 15 Most Powerful Systems in the World
CCRT (Centre de Calcul Recherche et Technologie), the Center for Research and Technology Computing in France, has awarded Bull the contract to build a supercomputer delivering in excess of 43 teraflops (43 thousand billion operations a second).
The CCRT's supercomputer will be made available for the scientific and industrial communities to use in major areas of research, particularly aeronautical engineering, energy, life sciences and environmental research. In particular, the system will be used by the members of the CCRT, including the French Atomic Energy Authority (the CEA), Electricite de France (EDF) and three companies from the SAFRAN Group: SNECMA, Turbomeca and Techspace Aero.
