Abstract:   The Aurora Bricks is the new highly modular high performance system from Eurotech, based on the technology developed in the QPACE2 project.
The general idea behind the Aurora Bricks is the one of a compact, modular and energy efficient high performance system, which uses all 3-dimension for both the electronics and the cooling of the electronics, leaving no space un-used.
The Aurora Bricks leverages the recently engineered second generation of the Aurora Direct Hot Liquid Cooling, the proven water cooling technology used in the Aurora supercomputers like the Tigon.
The result of this approach is an innovative HPC architecture that excels in agility, performance density and energy efficiency.
