Euler computer cluster

High-performance computer cluster

The Center for Research in Mathematical Sciences Applied to Industry (CeMEAI), one of the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (RIDC) supported by FAPESP, has inaugurated a Euler computer cluster at the São Carlos campus of the University of São Paulo (USP). Purchased at a cost of R$4.5 million, the system consists of 104 computers linked in network. According to CeMEAI coordinators, it is the fastest currently operating at São Paulo universities. While a laptop can process 10 billion floating point operations per second (FLOPs), the São Carlos computer cluster can handle 47 trillion.
