Supercomputing at the Leading Edge
A Key Technology for Science and Engineering

The Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) provides the most powerful high-performance computing infrastructure in Europe to serve a broad range of research and industrial activities in various disciplines. GCS is the alliance of the three national supercomputing centres High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS), Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), and Leibniz Supercomputing Centre, Garching near Munich (LRZ).

HPC Services and Computing Time

GCS boosts computational science and engineering by offering a world-class computing and networking infrastructure. Each GCS centre hosts supercomputer systems well beyond the 1 Petaflops performance mark, placing all three individual GCS institutions amongst the most powerful computing centres in the world. The system architectures implemented at the three GCS centres are complementary to ensure that a broad spectrum of applications can be accommodated. Furthermore, all three GCS centres feature state-of-the-art visualisation facilities and provide a wide range of tools and services for optimal user support. More: HPC Services and Computing Time …
