The new PRIMERGY based High Performance Cluster enables Sofia Tech Park to participate in European-wide research activities

"We are happy with our Fujitsu HPC cluster, which delivers reliable, affordable, and scalable high-performance computing. When we come to upgrade the technology, we will look at the new technology Fujitsu has to offer."

Professor DSci Ana Proykova Head of HPC Lab Sofia Tech Park

Sofia Tech Park turned to Fujitsu to create an affordable, reliable, and scalable HPC cluster, enabling both commercial and academic projects to be completed quickly

Customer

Sofia Tech Park was established to enable local research, innovation, and technological capabilities in Bulgaria. It partners with private and public institutions to create and manage a unique environment for educational programs and to provide support for the commercialization of new technologies, products, and services.

Challenge

When the Sofia Tech Park was established, it wanted to incorporate HPC capability in order to attract researchers, SMEs, students, and funding. It needed to find the right technology partner at the right price to make HPC a reality.

Solution

Working with local partner, Kontrax, and Fujitsu, Sofia Tech Park configured and built a 24-node HPC cluster based on Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers. This now enables students, researchers, and commercial partners to operate a range of specialist applications, including WRF, Gromacs, ABINIT, Quantum ESPRESSO and CP2K.

Benefit

  • Fujitsu HPC delivers measured performance of 19,001 gigaflops and parallel efficiency of 81.4%, making it the second fastest supercomputer in Bulgaria
  • Leading performance ensures fast task completion
  • Maximum uptime enables optimal availability
  • Scalability and in-built capacity allow commercial partners to use the platform
