Computing centers / TGCC

Très Grand Centre de calcul

du CEA


TGCC is an infrastructure for scientific high-performance computing and Big Data, able to host petascale supercomputers.

This supercomputing center has been planned to welcome the first French Petascale machine Curie, funded by GENCI for the PRACE Research Infrastructure, and the next generation of Computing Center for Research and Technology (CCRT).
New Joliot-Curie supercomputer will replace Curie in the summer of 2018.



This new infrastructure is designed to:

  • accommodate future high end computing systems,

  • provide a communication and exhibition space for scientific events (conferences, seminars...),

  • propose a flexible and modular facility for future evolutions of HPC systems.

  • The infrastructure has been designed to optimize operating costs and power consumption.
