On February 19, 2020, the next-generation supercomputer at the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) was officially inaugurated. The new system’s increased performance will help it serve as a powerful tool for solving a host of cutting-edge scientific challenges in a variety of scientific disciplines incorporating computational sciences, simulation, and artificial intelligence, particularly with respect to their applications for engineering. That includes geo-processing applications such as those targeted by the EUXDAT project.

The peak performance of the new system is 26 petaflops, a 3.5-fold increase over HLRS’s previous flagship computer, and places it among the fastest high-performance computers in the world

More details about the new system and its application for scientific and engineering excellence are available at the press releases [1, 2]. And, a detailed hardware description can be found at [3].
