University of Paderborn full member of the Gauss Alliance e.V.

21 Dec 2017 Paderborn - In 2008, the Gauß-Allianz e.V. united the leading German high performance computer centres into a strong network of interests and services. Although the University of Paderborn is a founding member of the Alliance, it was so far only associate member. For a proper membership, the federal and statewide funding of the Paderborn Center for Parallel Computing (PC²), which has been acquired so far, was not sufficient as an executing university institute for high-performance computing (HPC).

This changed just a few months ago when the Joint Science Conference approved a PC² proposal for a new research building and a modern HPC calculator with a total volume of over 25.4 million euro. The board of the Gauß alliance then upgraded the University of Paderborn to a full member.

This makes the high-performance data centre one of the top ten academic HPC locations in Germany. Thus, the University of Paderborn is even more visible internationally and the research conditions for many scientists in Paderborn and Ost West Falen-Lippe (OWL) improve sustainable.

In the course of the coming year, the first expansion stage of the PC² will be completed with the installation of the new HPC computer. By the end of 2020, the new research building will be constructed with an energy-efficient HPC data centre and the requested final computer expansion will be achieved.
