DescriptionThe Gauss Center for Supercomputing (GCS) has just procured its next generation of HPC systems for Germany. Each system at the three national supercomputing centers in Garching, Jülich and Stuttgart offers more than 10 PetaFlop/s (10^16 Flop/s) of performance. This update from GC, showcases the latest installations and their capabilities and introduces an outlook on the future developments towards exascale. At the core of the GCS strategy is the increasing demand from the user communities, which drive the planning by requesting higher computational performance, better scalability, and improved throughput for the benefits of science and research. This user-driven approach underlines the goals of the German Smart Scaling Initiative to establish a powerful German HPC ecosystem, complementing European and international initiatives.
