Financed by national and state funds a comprehensive high performance computing (HPC) cluster and data facility infrastructure is provided to Baden-Württemberg's scientists. These resources are differentiated by scientific areas and application's requirements and scalability. Users' resource requests are therefore assigned accordingly.
Baden-Württemberg provides five HPC clusters at performance Tier 3 - aka the bwHPC clusters. The following summary lists the clusters' designated purpose or scientific community (bwHPC domains), user guides and operational status ranging from OK, constrained, unavailable to unknown.
For users with very high compute resource demands and highly parallelizable applications the following cluster at higher performance tiers are available:
Baden-Württemberg provides the following data facilities:
