JSC Contributes to PRACE Project Access
Within the 16th call for PRACE HPC Projects, JSC will contribute about 70 million core hours on its upcoming 12 Petaflop Cluster JUWELS, as one of seven HPC systems from five hosting member institutions spread across Europe. The computing time on JUWELS was awarded by PRACE in a peer-review process to three projects from the research fields of computational chemistry, CFD, and astrophysics. The projects come from France, UK, and the Netherlands. JSC rejoins the PRACE project access after the decommissioning of JUQUEEN, which also served as an HPC resource for PRACE in earlier calls. The participation is organized by the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) - the German member of PRACE - comprising the three national supercomputing centres LRZ at Garching near Munich, HLRS at Stuttgart, and JSC. In addition to previous calls, extended user support will be provided by new PRACE High-Level Support Teams, which will be operated jointly for GCS by the three member centres. Also new is the perspective of modular supercomputing, which will be offered through additional HPC architectures which will be attached to the JUWELS core Cluster module in the near future.
