In early 2012, HLRS inaugurated its supercomputer Hermit, a Cray XE6, at that time the fastest supercomputer in Germany. With a performance of more than 1 Petaflop/s Hermit is primarily used for engineering applications, for health, energy, environment and mobility research. In the ranking of industrially used supercomputers, the HLRS supercomputer currently holds third position worldwide (TOP500, June 2014, sub-list Industry). Hermit is designed for sustained application performance and highly scalable applications. It is composed of 3552 dual socket nodes equipped with AMD Interlagos Processors leading to 113,664 processing cores overall. Nodes are equipped with 32 GB or 64 GB main memory. The pre- and post- processing infrastructure aims to support users with complex workflows and with advanced access methods including remote graphics rendering and simulation steering. Hermit will be replaced by a next generation CRAY system named HORNET at the beginning of 2015.
