Koordination und Sicherstellung der weiteren Verfügbarkeit der Supercomputing-Ressourcen des Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) im Rahmen der nationalen Höchstleistungsrechner-Infrastruktur

(Coordination and securing the further availability of GCS' supercomputing resources in the framework of the national HPC infrastructure)

Funded through SiVeGCS, the GCS (Gauss Centre for Supercomputing) is establishing its “smart exascale” decade by investing heavily in next-generation systems while also boosting the breadth and depth of how the centres support and collaborate with users. It will continue to deliver world-class supercomputing resources, but wants to ensure that GCS's user base in research and industry can take full advantage of these technologies.

Within the SiVeGCS project GCS will greatly expand its training program, and is hiring new staff members at the three centres for a variety of new support functions. The three GCS centres are expanding their user support structures with new teams that do not only include HPC specialists, but also science domain experts. By having a contact versed in their various science domains, researchers using GCS resources can collaborate more closely with the respective centres and have a liaison available to help solve specific computing challenges in the researchers’ specific areas of study.
