Azzurra HPC center

Université Côte d'Azur’s new HPC cluster, named Azzurra, was launched in early 2020. The call for proposals is now open.

Azzurra aims to provide research laboratories and students throughout the University with a high quality and flexible computing platform offering high level intensive computing possibilities (CPU and GPU) and high performance storage space.

Azzurra provides UCA computing resources as part of the OPAL project.

The hardware is hosted on the site of INRIA Sophia Antipolis Méditerranée.

As a regional HPC center, Azzurra is positioned between laboratory or team computing machines, on the one hand, and national centers (GENCI), on the other.
