High Performance Computing offers...
The multifaceted architecture of the high performance computer allows for flexible and efficient scientific computing, especially for computationally intensive applications.
The experts of the Hessisches Kompetenzzentrum für Hochleistungsrechnen, HKHLR (Hessian Competence Center for High Performance Computing), will provide for consultancy and scientific support on using the cluster efficiently. Training on the use of high-performance computers is offered within the framework of the HKHLR, the NHR Network and the Gauß-Allianz.
The new high-performance computer Lichtenberg II again includes large memory nodes (this time with 1.5 TByte RAM) as well as new “accelerator” systems with NVIDIA GP-GPUs.
The first expansion stage of Lichtenberg II will provide its users with a real peak performance of up to 3.03 PFlop/s and a total of 257 TByte RAM. This also includes a new powerful storage system with about 4 PByte for data.
Towards the end of 2021, the Lichtenberg II high performance computer will be finally extended and completed by its second major expansion stage.
