    On Februar 17 Lord Mayor of Stuttgart Fritz Kuhn, Mayor Dr. Fabian Mayer, and Ines Aufrecht, Director of Economic Development paid a visit to the HLRS. After a welcome by Director Prof. Michael Resch, who gave a short introduction to HLRS's position and role in HPC the visitors had a look at Hazel Hen a Cray XC40 which is the fastest supercomputing system in Germany.

& 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 science & development, and 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.

The 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 co-operation with the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart (ASCS).
