Europe’s exascale supercomputer JUPITER to challenge US and China’s dominance

Posted by in categories: business, space, supercomputing

Officially, there are only two exascale supercomputers in the world: Frontier at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee and Aurora at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois. However, it is widely suspected that China has at least two secret exascale machines that have not been tested and ranked by the industry’s 500 list of the most powerful supercomputers in the world.

JUPITER, which stands for Joint Undertaking Pioneer for Innovative and Transformative Exascale Research, will be built at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre in Germany by the European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU), a collaboration between the European Union and private businesses.
