Enzian is a research computer built by the Systems Group at ETH Zurich.

As a research computer, Enzian is designed for computer systems software research, rather than any particular commercial workload. An Enzian node has a big server-class CPU closely coupled to a large FPGA, with ample main memory and network bandwidth on both sides.

Enzian power distribution boards

We've now got a power distribution board back from manufacture. David designed this to help us build a mock-up Enzian power and clock distribution network so Adam can write and test the Board Management Controller software.

We're hiring! We're looking for great PhD students to work on research projects around Enzian. To apply, contact the Systems Group using the instructions here.

We’re building Enzian to have a platform for our research into operating systems, databases, hardware acceleration, machine learning, networking, and high-performance computing, and because there was nothing comparable out there that we could get hold of otherwise.

If it works, we’d like make Enzian systems available to the rest of the research community. Find out more about it at this site.
