T-platforms sold supercomputer to Germany

The our developer of supercomputers The T-platform company will put the supercomputer of the German computing center of Julie. This is stated in company messages and computing center. The amount of the transaction will be 17 million euros, 10% of which will receive PARTEC – the German Software Manager Developer Manager, says Marketing Company Department of Marketing Elena Churakova.

The peak power of the computer will be 1.8 quadrillion of floating point operations per second (Petaflops) with the ability to increase another 0.4 peak for some applications (it will cost another 518,000 euros), claim in its message "T-platform". In the message of the Supercomputer Center, Julia says that its peak power must exceed 1.6 Petaflops, the computer should consist of 1,700 computing nodes. For the company "T-platform", which developed the largest our supercomputers of the Lomonosov series, standing in the MSU computing center, this is the first overseas delivery of this scale, says Churakova. Although before "T-platforms" had contracts with the American University of Stony Brook and Finnish CSC, these supplies Chuzrakova calls relatively small – 0.0025 and 0.4 Petaflops, respectively.

Judging by the top 50 our supercomputers, who leads the MSU computing center, in its peak power the future supercomputer in Julika will exceed launched in 2009. Lomonosov (1.7 Petaflops), but will give way to Lomonosov-2 with a peak capacity of 2.57 Petaflops, launched in 2014. The first "Lomonosov" after its launch occupied the 12th place in the world ranking of the Top 500, compiled in November 2009. Five years later, in November 2014., He was on the 58th line, while the next model – Lomonosov-2 – took the 22nd line, said on the website of the our rating. The first place of the last international rankings for November 2014. It takes Tianhe-2, built in the Chinese National Supercomputer Center in Guangzhou Defense Scientific and Technical University of China’s People’s Liberation Army. Peak power TIANHE-2 – 54.9 Petaflops. In the current world ranking, the supercomputer supplied in Yulih would occupy the 28th line.

T-platforms have been under American sanctions for 10 months. US authorities suspected them in activities contrary to the interests of national security and foreign policy: in their opinion, the company developed computer systems for military purposes. The US Department of Commerce contributed to the sanctions list "T-platform" March 8, 2013., And in January 2014. The company reported on the removal of sanctions.


After declaring the results of the Supplies Competition, the French company Bull participated in the competition in the competition in the competition was "T-platforms" their presence in the American sanctions list in 2013., He says Churakova. According to her, trying to challenge the purchase from the our manufacturer, the French company filed a lawsuit against Juli’s supercomputer center to the German judicial authority, which regulates open tenders. But, since the claim was built on political arguments, the court did not support Bull and it had to withdraw the lawsuit, says Churakova.

Now Supercomputers "T-platforms" are manufactured at factors of Southeast Asia, although all intellectual property on the system and the working design documentation belongs to T-platforms, says Churakova. But, according to her, the company is working to transfer the production of printed circuit boards and enclosures to Russia with cooling and power supply systems. In addition, the company intends to create a competitive domestic processor, says Churakova.

Supercomputer power will be needed by German scientists for modeling various processes: The supercomputer center serves the research center in Yulikha, who specializes in natural sciences, follows from the message "T-platforms". In addition, the computing power of the supercomputer Julie can lease researchers from around the world.
