Summary: The Role of the Julich Supercomputing Centre within LinkSCEEM
Over the last few years the Julich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) became one of the driving
forces in Europe which promote the creation and implementation of a High Performance
Computing (HPC) service as a persistent and sustainable European Research Infrastructure,
hosted by 3-5 Tier-0 centres. In parallel, JSC developed its supercomputer systems in a way
that it currently provides the two most powerful European supercomputers: JUGENE, an IBM
Blue Gene/P system with a peak performance of 1 PFlop and JUROPA, an Intel-Nehalem
based cluster with 300 TFlops. JSC strives to become one of the first European supercomputer
centres.
Starting from scientific contacts between researchers in Julich and Nicosia around 2004 and
earlier, better integrated since the Julich initiative towards the new EU member states in 2006,
the EU project LinkSCEEM strengthens such collaborations and serves as a prototype for the
integration of a big Western European supercomputing centre, a small or medium-sized
Eastern Mediterranean centre and their associated research communities into a pan-European
Research Infrastructure. The small centre can profit from the expertise of the big one, the
associated communities can benefit from each other and new opportunities with respect to
scientific exchange, resource provisioning and support are generated for all partners.
In the first part of the talk the Julich Supercomputing Centre and its mission will be
introduced. In the second part the development of relations between JSC and CaSToRC as
well as between JSC and other LinkSCEEM partners will be highlighted and the mutual
