• Hawk to Replace Hazel Hen

    HLRS and Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced a joint collaboration to build a new supercomputing system called Hawk, which will be 3.5 times faster than HLRS's current flagship supercomputer, Hazel Hen.

  • Computational Chemistry Supports Research on New Semiconductor Technologies

    University of Marburg researchers are using high-performance computing to investigate how functionalizing silicon with other compounds could make light-based signaling feasible.

  • Supercomputing Simulations and Machine Learning Help Improve Power Plants

    High-performance computing resources and data-driven machine learning helped University of Stuttgart researchers model how coal, nuclear, and geothermal power plants could be retrofitted for cleaner, safer, and more efficient operation.

  • Media Solution Center Will Promote Innovation in Technologies for Film and Digital Art

    The MSC aims to facilitate the integration of new applications of high-performance computing and simulation into media production.

& Science

Research and science are the main pillars ensuring continuous delivery of high-edge services in every area of high-performance computing provisioning.



HLRS offers a variety of services to industry and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) way beyond plain HPC resource provisioning.



Simulations transform research and development, as well as decision making in politics. Dealing with simulations in a rational way is therefore a scientific and societal task in itself.


The High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) of the University of Stuttgart is one of the three member centres of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS). HLRS supports national and European researchers from science and industry by providing high-performance computing platforms and technologies, services and support. Services are provided in cooperation with the other two member centres of GCS and with industrial partners such as hww GmbH (T-Systems, Porsche AG) and SICOS BW GmbH.

HLRS conducts basic and applied research in the field of high-performance computing in publicly funded national and European projects as well as industrial research activities in association with partners from research and industry. Collaborative research in the automotive field is carried out in cooperation with the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart (ASCS).
