Usage of SuperMUC-NG - supercomputer

SuperMUC-NG is the name of the high-end supercomputer at the Leibniz-Rechenzentrum (Leibniz Supercomputing Centre) in Garching near Munich (the MUC suffix is borrowed from the Munich airport code). With more than 311,000 cores and a peak performance of more than 26.9 Petaflop/s (=1015 Floating Point Operations per second), it is one of the fastest supercomputers in the world.


A separate application procedure for academic users from Germany and the European PRACE member states must be completed to gain access.

In order to carry out sophisticated numerical simulations in the natural and engineering sciences, the LRZ provides more powerful supercomputers and the software necessary for their use. The LRZ aims to ensure that such computers are among the most powerful systems in the world, at least at the time of procurement. Typical features of these supercomputers are a large number of networked processors that access fast, shared file systems and a very large shared main memory. The supercomputer at the LRZ can be used by scientists all over Germany and researchers of the PRACE member states, but the prerequisite is that an evaluation procedure is successfully completed. In addition to operating the computer, the LRZ offers extensive support in using the computers and optimizing the programs running on them.
