The future is now

Our mission:

Creating a new world with our high-performance computer

LuxProvide is the national supercomputer HPC organisation in charge of the planning, installation and long-term operation of the machine. For our brand new organisation and future HPC infrastructure, we are seeking talented and highly motivated experts to join the team in charge of the design, implementation, and operation of the national supercomputer.

MeluXinahigh-performance computing

Luxembourg’s first supercomputer MeluXina has been installed in LuxConnect’s Data Center DC2 in Bissen, which is powered by green energy from Kiowatt, a cogeneration plant fuelled by waste wood.

Its modular architecture focuses on the needs of its users including companies and players in the Luxembourg economy, and more specifically SMEs and start-ups. MeluXina is a key element of Luxembourg’s data-driven innovation strategy, which aims to develop a sustainable and reliable digital economy and supports the digital transition of the economy by facilitating competitiveness and business innovation in an increasingly digital world. The computing power of MeluXina is more than 10 petaflops.

It has been operational since June 2021 and is ranked among the first 50 of the TOP500 supercomputers worldwide.

MeluXina goes live

The supercomputer MeluXina was inaugurated in June 2021 and made available to business and research. MeluXina is the perfect support for Luxembourg's data-driven innovation strategy. It contributes to building a digital, sustainable and reliable economy by making high-performance computing accessible to businesses of all sizes.

Technical structure

The HPC model is a BullSequana XH2000 with a computing capacity of 18 petaflops per second. Fully scalable, the HPC delivers sustained performance due to its open and modular architecture. Modular supercomputers accommodate big data science.
