The Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Garching near Munich procures its next supercomputer - an exascale capable system and is already working with two technology partners to develop the most suitable system for users as part of an innovation partnership.
Lenovo announced that it is working together with the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) to build Europe's first High Performance Computer (HPC) prototype as part of an innovation partnership. Lenovo will be one of two companies selected to provide one or more prototypes for the exascale-ready system planned for the middle of this decade at the LRZ.
These are to be optimized for the needs of LRZ users from many different fields in science. Only after completion of these research and development activities and the subsequent evaluation will it become clear which of the two participating technology companies will build and maintain the next exascale generation supercomputer.
