Peak LUMI Performance – 552 petaflops
This week, European supercomputer project EuroHPC JU and HPE announced that a supercomputer will be deployed in Finland with a peak performance of 552 petaflops, making it one of the fastest in the world. The system will be based on AMD Epyc processors and AMD Instinct accelerators.
The LUMI supercomputer will be available in ten European countries that have recently created a consortium of the same name: Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Poland, Sweden, and Switzerland. The system will be located at the CSC – IT Science Center in Kajaani, Finland (the illustration shows a sketch of the LUMI Computing Center).
The press release notes that the supercomputer will be powered by environmentally friendly energy sources, and the heat generated during operation will cover 20% of the heating needs of the area where the supercomputer will be located.
Commissioning of the system is scheduled for the middle of next year.
