High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart and Hewlett Packard Enterprise Collaborate to Build World’s Fastest Supercomputer for Industrial Production

GCS NewsFlash 20/2018

The High-Performance Computing Center of the University of Stuttgart (HLRS) and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), the number one market leader in high-performance computing (HPC), announced a joint collaboration to build and deliver for HLRS a next-generation supercomputer, 3.5 times faster than its current system. The upcoming system, which HLRS has named Hawk, will be the world’s fastest supercomputer for industrial production, powering computational engineering and research across science and industrial fields to advance applications in energy, climate, mobility, and health.

Hawk, based on HPE’s next-generation high-performance computing (HPC) platform running a next-generation AMD EPYC™ processor code named Rome, will have a theoretical peak performance of 24 petaFLOPs, and consist of a 5,000-node cluster.
