University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne

The University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne is a multidisciplinary university which develops innovative, fundamental and applied research. It provides more than 24 000 students with a wide initial undergraduate studies program which corresponds to society’s needs in all domains of the knowledge.

The ROMEO HPC Center Champagne Ardenne is an HPC platform hosted by the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne and supported by the d Champagne-Ardenne Region since 2002.

As a GPU Research Center and GPU Application Lab, its mission is to deliver high performance computing resources for both industrial and academic researchers, along with an entire ecosystem of services like HPC and GPU training, teaching, consulting and expertise as well as an application porting service.

ROMEO HPC Center is hosting the main french GPU hybrid cluster, called Romeo, and powered by 260 NVIDIA Tesla K20X GPU accelerators housed in 130 Bullx R421 E3 servers containing 2 Intel Ivy Bridge 8 cores processors. The system delivers 254.9 TFLOPS of performance with an energy efficiency of 3.3 GFLOPS/W.

Furthermore, ROMEO proposes storage spaces, specific software and support in its usage, as well as an in-depth expertise in 3 main application domains: mathematics and computer science, physics and engineering sciences, and multiscale molecular modeling.


URCA interest in TERATEC is to develop collaborations between University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne and industry leaders in the field of simulation. Thus, MaSCA – House for Simulation in Champagne-Ardenne – and ROMEO HPC Center will also provide expertise, training, resource rentals and application code porting.
