For very computationally and memory intensive computations, members of Kiel University can use the HLRN supercomputing system in the scope of the North-German Supercomputing Alliance. The HLRN Supercomputing Alliance was formed in 2001 and is a joint project of the seven North-German states Berlin, Brandenburg, Bremen, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Niedersachsen and Schleswig-Hostein.

The HLRN alliance jointly operates a distributed supercomputer system hosted at the sites Georg-August-Universität Göttingen und Zuse-Institut Berlin (ZIB). In September 2018 the HLRN-IV system phase 1 was put into operation. After the successful installation of phase 2 the total HLRN-IV system will hold more than 200,000 cores with a total peak performance of about 16 PFlop/s.


 

REMARK: For the currently available resources at the HLRN due to the setup of HLRN-IV being in progress, please see the web pages of HLRN. Link to documentation.

  • 432 ‘medium’ compute nodes with:
    • 2 x Intel Skylake Gold 6148 CPUs (40 cores per nodes)
    • 192 GB Memory
    • 1 x 480 GB SSD hard disk
    • 1 x Intel Omni-Path host fabric adapter
  • 16 ‘large’ compute nodes with:
    • 2 x Intel Skylake Gold 6148 CPUs (40 cores per nodes)
    • 768 GB Memory
    • 1 x 480 GB SSD hard disk
    • 1 x Intel Omni-Path host fabric adapter
  • 1 GPU node with:
