History

Barcelona Supercomputing Center is the national supercomputing centre in Spain and it specialises in high performance computing. The mission of the centre is two-fold:

  • to provide infrastructure and supercomputing services to Spanish and European scientists and
  • to generate knowledge and technology to transfer to business and society.

It is  a Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence and a hosting member of the European research infrastructure PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe). Barcelona Supercomputing Center manages the Spanish Supercomputing Network (RES). As a research centre it has almost 300 experts and R&D Professionals organized into four main areas: Computer sciences, Life sciences, Earth sciences and Computer applications in science and engineering.

These scientists conduct their own research and take part in other centres’ projects, facilitating the use of HPC through their experience in developing applications suitable for this kind of computing. As a service centre it has several supercomputers and high-capacity data repositories.

The MareNostrum supercomputer, which has a capacity of 1.1 petaflops, is the centre’s emblem. MinoTauro is the second most powerful supercomputer and has an extremely energy-efficient architecture. Barcelona Supercomputing Center also  has Big Data infrastructures, with a total storage capacity of 11 Petabytes.
