High Performance Computing & Data Analytics
High-performance computing systems enable researchers of the Max Planck Society and the University of Göttingen to run their parallel data- and compute-intensive applications. Furthermore, a large portfolio of data analytics and bio-informatics applications is offered and tightly integrated into the compute infrastructure. The GWDG also supports MPIs in the procurement process of department-owned resources – from the proposal to the operation. Since 2021, GWDG and the University of Göttingen are one of eight German Centers for National High Performance Computing (NHR Centers) offering services nationwide.
Storage services are not only essential for almost all scientific disciplines nowadays, but also the foundation of a multitude of standard tasks we execute daily. Therefore, GWDG offers a well selected portfolio of storage services including backup, archive, file service, sync and share (Owncloud & Nextcloud), S3-base object storage, and more.
