The supercomputer JUROPA was based on a cluster configuration of NovaScale servers from the French computer specialist Bull, and on blade servers from the American company Sun with Intel Nehalem processors. The system was designed by experts from the Jülich Supercomputing Centre and implemented together with the partner companies Bull, Sun, Intel, Mellanox and ParTec. It consisted of 2208 computing nodes with a total computing capacity of 207 teraflop/s. JUROPA’s operating system was developed by Forschungszentrum Jülich and ParTec. JUROPA was financed by Forschungszentrum Jülich within the framework of funding by the Helmholtz Association.
JUROPA was shutoff on the 24th of June 2015. Its successor is JURECA.
