Grand Equipement National pour le Calcul Intensif (GENCI) is a government-owned organization in charge of coordinating high-performance computing (HPC) for France’s research institutes. It was created in 2007 to ensure France is at the international forefront of scientific research. GENCI is charged by the Ministry for Higher Education and Research with implementing and ensuring the coordination of the French national
HPC centres by providing funding, assuming ownership and promoting the use of HPC in fundamental and industrial research. GENCI is also the French representative of the Partnership of Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) and, as such, also has responsibility for driving HPC across Europe. With these objectives in mind, GENCI asked system integrator Bull to develop an HPC computing cluster based among others
on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2680. The cluster consists of 92,000 cores installed and operated at the Très Grand Centre de calcul du CEA (TGCC) close to Paris.
