Leibniz Supercomputing Centre enables ground-breaking research with pioneering technology

Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) wanted to remain a leading hub within the HPC community, which means providing compute resources that combine industry-leading performance and energy efficiency. The organization implemented its SuperMUC Phase 2 supercomputer based on 3,072 Lenovo NeXtScale nx360 M5 WCT compute nodes. Researchers can run larger simulations than ever before with up to 1 quadrillion cells, increasing resolution for molecular simulations by a factor of 100, while LRZ saves 35 percent in operating costs compared to air-cooled systems.
