Scientists at the Goethe University and in the state of Hessen will be using LOEWE-CSC for a wide range of scientific research, ranging from theoretical physics and chemistry to life sciences and computer science. This research is supported amongst others by the Frankfurt Cluster of Excellence for Macromolecular Complexes (CEF-MC), the LOEWE Helmholtz International Centre (HIC) for FAIR, the LOEWE Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre (BiKF), the Transregio SFB 49 Condensed Matter Systems with Variable Many-Body Interactions, the Frankfurt Bernstein Focus Neurotechnology DMSPiN, and the Hessian Quantum Chemistry Initiative.
"This supercomputer represents a new era for high-performance computing at the University of Frankfurt. The LOEWE-CSC supercomputer will allow us to run a large range of scientific applications at an unprecedented scale, but also at a ground-breaking performance-
The supercomputer will be built by ClusterVision using Bright Cluster Manager™ as the cluster management software, which is unique due to its built-in functionality for large and complex HPC clusters. At the heart of the cluster will be 386 units of 2U Supermicro GPU-optimised Twin servers with two hot-plug nodes each, 1544 AMD Opteron 12-core "Magny-Cours"
About the HHLR-GU
The Goethe-University's Hessian high performance computer organisation (HHLR-GU) coordinates all IT and HPC activities at the Goethe University. Part of HHLR-GU is the Center for Scientific Computing, which was founded as a joint initiative of research groups from the university departments Physics, Chemistry, Biochemistry and Pharmacy, Geosciences, Computer Science and Mathematics, and the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS). The mission of the CSC is HPC support for the scientific community and education in Computational Science. The CSC organises the interdisciplinary master program Computational Science and regular seminars. It will also operate the new flagship computer LOEWE-CSC.
