On July 20, I will be giving a talk at Aachen University jointly with Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH where we have our JUGENE Supercomputer, at the invitation of Christian Terboven, a research associate, whose blog I read regularly:
This will be a 3 hour talk to cover the latest updates from the C++ Standard Committee (and there are many) and C++0x Concurrency. Here is the poster:
Aachen University carries a large IBM backup / archive solution and are using IBM Tivoli Identity Manager software throughout the whole university (and were the first in the whole world to do that).
For those curious about JUGENE, this is gathered from wikipedia entry.
This is a BlueGene/P with 65,536 PowerPC 450 cores, clocked at 850 MHz and housed in 16 cabinets the computer reaches a peak processing power of 222.8 TFLOPS (Rpeak). With an official Linpack rating of 167.3 TFLOPS (Rmax) JUGENE took second place overall and is the fastest civil/commercially used computer in the TOP500 list of November 2007.
In February 2009 it was announced that JUGENE wil be upgraded to reach petaflops performance in June 2009, making it the first petascale supercomputer in Europe.
On May 26, 2009, the newly configurated JUGENE was unveiled. It includes 294 912 processor cores, 144 terabyte memory, 6 petabyte storage in 72 racks. With a peak performance of about one PetaFLOPS, it is the third fastest supercomputer in the world, ranking only behind IBM Roadrunner and Jaguar. The new configuaration also incorporates a new water cooling system that will reduce the cooling cost substantially.
