Luxprovide was pleased to offer its members an exclusive tour of MeluXina, Luxembourg’s high performance computer.

In 2022, LuxProvide became a member of LU-CIX and wanted to be an active member of the community from the beginning. Thus, some LU-CIX members, could learn more about the MeluXina supercomputer inaugurated in June 2021. The perfect support for Luxembourg’s data-driven innovation strategy is MeluXina. By giving companies of all sizes access to high-performance computing, MeluXina helps build a digital, sustainable and reliable economy. It is one of the most powerful high-performance computers in Europe. The MeluXina supercomputer has a computing power of 18 petaflops, or 18 million billion computing operations per second. To put the size in numbers: 18,000,000,000,000. MeluXina has thus made it into the top 50 of the world ranking of the 500 most powerful computers.

On March 16, some LU-CIX members were able to discover the supercomputer during an exclusive visit with us and learn more about how it works.
