-As a spiking neural network simulator Auryn is complementary to other simulators such as [[http://​www.nest-initiative.org|NEST]] and [[http://​briansimulator.org/​|Brian]]. Instead of focusing on large-scale simulations or ease of model development,​ Auryn'​s main focus lies on simulation speed to efficiently simulate small or medium sized network models with plasticity over extended periods of simulated time (hours to days). To that end, Auryn is optimized to run efficiently on shared memory machines and small clusters. Auryn is written in C++ and uses MPI for parallel execution. Moreover, it supports Intel'​s [[manual:​xeonphi|Xeon Phi]] architecture.+As a spiking neural network simulator Auryn is complementary to other simulators such as [[http://​www.nest-initiative.org|NEST]] and [[http://​briansimulator.org/​|Brian]].
