HIGH-PERFORMANCE COMPUTING CENTER STUTTGART (HLRS)

The High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS, Höchstleistungsrechenzentrum Stuttgart) of the University of Stuttgart supports users from all fields of science in using leading- edge supercomputing technology and its applications.

HLRS's mission

The High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) of the University of Stuttgart supports academic and industrial researchers from Germany and Europe with leading- edge supercomputing technology. The centre offers additional services, supplied in collaboration with scientific partners at SICOS GmbH and industrial partners through hww GmbH (German: Höchleistungsrechner für Wissenschaft and Wirtschaft, a joint holding between the state of Baden-Württemberg, the University of Stuttgart, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, T-Systems, and Porsche AG).

HLRS is located in one of Europe’s strongest science and innovation regions and offers world-class computational facilities and support for engineering sciences. Due to its integration into the University of Stuttgart, the centre is well-suited for bringing together research and development, production, and teaching under one roof. The supercomputing environment at HLRS is primarily designed for scientific engineering tasks, meaning that HLRS’ systems are regularly among world’s largest and fastest supercomputing platforms used for industrial research.

The centre a major player and driving force in the field of international HPC training and education. It also collaborates with many firms, such as Stuttgart-based Daimler and Porsche, making the centre one of the worldwide leaders for academic-industrial partnerships. Building on these relationships, HLRS actively enables knowledge transfer from academic research to industrial production.
