Hewlett Packard Enterprise recently announced it is building two new supercomputers for clients in Europe. One, called “Adastra” will be delivered to the French center for higher education, while the second is built to support weather research in several countries.

The supercomputer that will be installed and operated at CINES (National Computing Center for Higher Education), which is one of the three high-performance computing (HPC) centers in France, will be one of Europe’s most powerful. The new machine was procured by GENCI, a national French agency that invests and provides HPC resources to support France’s academic and industrial research communities.

The United Weather Centres – West (UWC-West), a collaboration between the Danish Meteorological Institute, Icelandic Met Office, Met Éireann, Ireland’s national weather service, and the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute, will also get a new supercomputer from HPE. It will be based in an Icelandic Met Office data center facility and powered by local renewable energy. It will be powered by the HPE Cray system that features powerful, end-to-end performance to speed time-to-predictions with higher resolution, helping weather services issue timely alerts and improve public services.

HPE announced that both supercomputers will be delivered in about one year. Adastra will be based in CINES, in Montpellier, France. The system will be installed and put into use in 2022. The UWC- West’s new supercomputer will be installed in the second quarter of 2022 and operational by early 2023.
