Cy-Tera: Cy-Tera High Performance Computing Facility for Cyprus

The Cy-Tera project aims to create a research facility including a High-Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructure supporting cutting-edge scientific applications, including computational science research, associated HPC user support and training programs. It constitutes a major step in the development of the Computation-based Science and Technology Research Center (CaSToRC) of the Cyprus Institute (CyI).

The Cy-Tera facility is the first HPC facility at multi-Teraflop/s level in Cyprus, serving the needs of CyI and its partners (The National Center for Supercomputing Applications, located at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the Jülich Supercomputing Centre, the University of Cyprus, and the Synchrotron-light for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East) for frontier research applications with scientific and social importance.
