Leibniz Supercomputing Centre in Garching
Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) is an institution of the Commission for Informatics of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. It employs 170 staff members. LRZ understands itself as a service-oriented enterprise for scientific institutions. Via the Munich scientific network, which is also operated by LRZ, all central servers and systems of the universities in Munich as well as from other scientific institutions (e.g., the Bavarian Academy of Sciences, the Max-Planck Institutes, the Fraunhofer society etc.) are interconnected. In its role as a center for technical and scientific supercomputing, LRZ operates an HPC system for state-wide usage, and since March 2000 also one of three national supercomputing systems, which can be used by scientists throughout Germany. Apart from investigations in the area of scientific supercomputing and IT management LRZ also is a nation-wide competence center for data communication networks, collaborating with other scientific institutions and industrial partners within a number of pilot projects.
