Upon its completion in late 2018, the new supercomputer (called SuperMUC-NG) will support LRZ
in its groundbreaking research across a variety of complex scientific disciplines, such as astrophysics, fluid dynamics and life sciences, by offering highly available, secure and energy- efficient high-performance computing (HPC) services that leverage industry-leading technology optimized to address the a broad range of scientific computing applications.
Information technology company IBM (NYSE: IBM) announced yesterday that the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ
) has implemented an IBM tape storage system to provide up to 16.5 petabytes of scientific data archiving and backup for the centre's SuperMUC supercomputer.

SGI said that those among the first to benefit from Altix UV include scientific research institutions such as Pittsburgh Supercomputing Centre (PSC), Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ
), University of Cambridge and leading federal integrators that have selected Altix UV.
The record-breaking Altix 4700 system is now installed in Munich, Germany, at the Leibniz Rechen-Zentrum (LRZ
The company claimed the fully functional Altix UV has been shipped to scientific research institutions, which includes Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC), Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ
), University of Cambridge and leading federal integrators.
NAG, the world's leading provider of mathematical and statistical software components for academia, has announced a renewed and extended partnership with the Leibniz Rechenzentrum Computing Center (LRZ
system, known as HLRB II, operates all 4,096 processors as a unified platform that enables applications to directly address all 17TB of memory.
The world record was posted recently on the STREAM Triad Top 20 page at http://www.cs.virginia.edu/stream/top20/Bandwidth.html , after the results were achieved and validated June 1 on an SGI Altix 4700 system now installed at the Leibniz Computing Centre Munich (LRZ
The new system, which eventually will incorporate 3,328 dual-core Intel(R) Itanium(R) 2 processors, will be capable of generating 69 trillion calculations per second of performance, effectively boosting the computing capacity at Germany's Leibniz Computing Center (LRZ
