Next Su­per­com­puter - Out­look

In 2025, PC2 will inaugurate the next supercomputer which will be delivered, installed and maintained by pro-com Datensysteme GmbH. Beginning in 2025, a large portion of the computer system will be made available for nationwide use as part of the National High Performance Computing (NHR) initiative and will support the Atomistic Simulation research priority, among others. In addition, the HPC system will be available to all researchers at Paderborn University and other scientists in the PC2 research focus areas from North Rhine-Westphalia. The current Noctua 2 system at PC2 will thus be complemented by another HPC system with approximately twice the computing power. The cost of the system in the planned final configuration will be approximately 14 million Euros.
