High-Performance pcs (HPC) have initiated a progressive improve­ ment in learn and know-how due to the fact that many advanced and hard prob­ lems during this sector can in simple terms be solved by way of HPC and a community in modeling, algo­ rithms and software program. In 1998 the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German examine organization) advised to put in an extra Federal excessive­ functionality machine via the only in Stuttgart. In January 1999 the Wissenschaftsrat (German technology Council) determined that the Leibniz­ Rechenzentrum (Computing middle) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences in Munich may still run the second one Federal High-Performance computing device in Ger­ many. The funding expense of this Hochstleistungsrechner in Bayern (HLRB) used to be borne by way of the government of Germany and the unfastened kingdom of Bavaria while the working expense used to be on the rate of the Bavarian Gov­ ernment basically. The operation of the HLRB is geared up together with the - Leibniz-Rechenzentrum (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences because the working authority of the HLRB - steerage Committee of the HLRB - Competence community for Technical/Scientific High-Performance Comp- ing in Bavaria (KONWIHR). In 2000 a Hitachi SR8000-Fl was once put in. It was once the 1st Teraflops Com­ puter in Germany and reached a top functionality of 2 Teraflops after an extension on the finish of 2001. The target of HLRB is to supply laptop facil­ ities essential to remedy demanding medical and technological difficulties that can not be solved on enormous servers yet require huge (storage) high-performance (very speedy) pcs and effective software.
