Reinventing HPC –
Pushing Future Computing & Future Science

Reinventing HPC: LRZ at the ISC 2024

“Reinventing HPC” is the official slogan for ISC High-Performance 2024. The challenges in the HPC ecosystem are manyfold: What are the answers to create more energy-efficient and more sustainable HPC? How do we deal with energy consumption in the rapidly growing AI space? And is AI all about scale or maybe also about smart AI approaches within HPC? What's next in the field of HPC and quantum? And how do we prepare our users for all of this?

At the LRZ, we’ve accepted the challenge to find solutions to the questions, that drive our industry already today – and to do the possible. Why? Because it is in our DNA to support our users as best as we can and always be one step ahead to providing the latest technologies. Opening up new avenues for our users and increasing their time-to-solution is what really matters to us.

Meet us at ISC24 - GCS booth #K02

Soon to be operational, the Phase 2 of SuperMUC-NG it's one of the fastest supercomputers in Germany. It significantly expands LRZ’s high performance artificial intelligence capabilities and serves Germany's broad AI and HPC userbase. It will reduce the time to science for world-class use cases from e.g. life sciences, environmental sciences, and material sciences.

Check out the exhibit: Hot-water cooled GPU


Enabling word-class science: This is what our flagship system does for an extremely broad user base reaching from astrophysics and engineering to environmental computing and personalized medicine. Get to know our leadership-class system: SuperMUC-NG

AI propels HPC

With AI techniques becoming more widely used, demand in HPC and AI resources  increases in various fields of science at the speed of light. Our answer: Integrating the power of HPC with artificial intelligence techniques and work on smart AI solutions.

Re-inventing HPC

Developing solutions for sensitive health data, creating a portal for the fair use of massive amounts of HPC data or figuring out how containerisation works best for different HPC systems: Re-inventing HPC is in our DNA. Read about our latest developments.

Quantum Computing

From music of the future to everyday rhythm: Step by step and in collaboration with our partners in science, technology and industry we are orchestrating quantum computing and bringing the new technology into everyday life in science and research.

Supercomputing both consumes energy and helps co-develop energy efficiency solutions. Togehter with our partners we have been leading the way in this field for over a decade. And the topic is not losing its relevance. On the contrary, with energy hungry AI solutions on the rise, it gets ever more hot. Watch the talk "More compute with less energy" given by our Head of LRZ, Prof. Dieter Kranzlmüller, for the lecture series "Sustainability in Computer Science" at the TU Wien earlier in 2024. And let's discuss his statements on-site at ISC.
