Germany’s Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) provides computing facilities for Munich’s universities and the Bavarian Academy of Science and Humanities. As part of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), it's also a national center for high-performance computing (HPC) and a leading supercomputing center for the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE), an affiliation of European organizations dedicated to operating European supercomputing infrastructure and to promote HPC usage throughout Europe. LRZ is operating a new general-purpose HPC platform with over 155,000 Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family cores. Called SuperMUC*, the HPC platform is No. 4 in the TOP500 Supercomputer rankings and  the largest Intel-based computer in the world.

“We considered all major vendors for our new supercomputing platform, but the direct liquid cooling and powerful performance, as well as general HPC capacity, convinced us that the IBM platform powered by the Intel Xeon processer E5 family was the right choice for LRZ,” explained LRZ's Dr. Herbert Huber.
