ParTec, Atos Unit Sign Partnership for Europe's First Exascale Supercomputer

The partnership will supply a supercomputer dubbed JUPITER to the German Jülich Supercomputing Centre for 500 million euros ($524 million).

A Franco-German consortium said on Wednesday it had signed a deal to provide Europe’s first Exascale supercomputer as the region tries to catch up with the United States in next-generation computing.

The consortium, comprising Germany’s ParTec and a unit of France’s Atos, said it had struck a deal with EuroHPC, a joint venture between the EU, European countries, and private firms aimed at promoting supercomputing in Europe.

Supercomputers are vastly more powerful than traditional ones, and an Exascale supercomputer can perform one quintillion, or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000, calculations per second.

The partnership will supply a supercomputer dubbed JUPITER to the German Jülich Supercomputing Centre for 500 million euros ($524 million).

“JUPITER will have up to three times the data processing capability of Europe’s current most powerful supercomputer,” the consortium stated, adding that it would take up around four tennis courts’ worth of area.
