JURECA data-centric module to replace JURECA Cluster

Focus on EuropeIn parallel with the ongoing deployment of the JUWELS Booster, Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) is actively preparing its next major system upgrade. In November 2020, the JURECA Cluster will have reached five years of successful operation and will require renewal. For this purpose, the Cluster module of the modular supercomputer JURECA, consisting of the Cluster module as well as the Booster module installed in 2017, will be replaced by the new JURECA "data-centric" (DC) module.
