HKHLR

Competence Center for High Performance Computing in Hesse (HKHLR)

TU Darmstadt is member of the HKHLR, a cooperative unit of five hessian HPC centers.

Primary aim of the Competence Center for High Performance Computing in Hesse is to assist scientists in using modern HPC systems efficiently and sustainably. For that, HPC Hesse offers workshops, consultancy and high-level user support. Staff members at each university take care of supporting local users.

The following centers provide HPC resources for scientific calculations:

  • The Lichtenberg Cluster at Technical University Darmstadt
  • Goethe-University Frankfurt: the Center for Scientific Computing (CSC) with LOEWE-CSC and FUCHS
  • Justus-Liebig University Giessen: the HLR Skylla,
  • University Kassel: the Linux-Cluster
  • Philipps University Marburg the Marburger RechenCluster 2 (MaRC2).

The Competence Center for High Performance Computing in Hesse was founded by the universities of Darmstadt, Frankfurt, Giessen, Kassel, and Marburg.
It is funded by Hesse's State Ministry of Higher Education, Research and the Arts.
