The Steinbuch Centre for Computing operates large-scale facilities for scientific high-performance computing and data-intensive sciences within the framework of secure IT federations. This modern parallel supercomputers such as the "High Performance Computing Karlsruhe" (HoreKa), other cluster systems and development platforms for different user groups. In November 2020, the SCC was selected as a center for National High Performance Computing (NHR).
Information about the services and systems related to scientific computing are listed below.
Here you will find current news about scientific computing as well as news from research and development at HPC.
