Current Projects


University of Hamburg awards MEGWARE the contract to procure an HPC cluster

MEGWARE succeeded in fending off the competition and was awarded the contract to procure a high-performance and efficient HPC cluster system at the University of Hamburg Regional Data Centre (RRZ). The HPC cluster is needed for use in a broad variety of scientific projects. It is considered the central asset in high-performance computing requirements, and will be used by the scientific working groups at the University of Hamburg and operated by the Regional Data Centre (RRZ). A number of different types of computer node will be needed to satisfy the heterogeneous requirements. MEGWARE’s proposed configurations include dual socket standard-compute nodes based on Xeon 8-core processors Core in the latest Haswell CPU generation. The expected computing performance ranges at approximately 250 TFlops of theoretical CPU peak performance. Besides additional service nodes, the HPC cluster includes two high-performance hard drives systems. MEGWARE has planned a Mellanox Interconnect based on 40 Gbit/s QDR Infiniband to provide rapid communication between all components installed and two Ethernet networks for cluster management and service (IPMI). The project will be completed mid-May.


Delivery of a new high-performance computer to the University of Rostock

The Chair of Modelling and Simulation focuses mainly on technical questions of how to create models that require numerical solutions in mechanical and ship engineering. The spectrum extends from fundamental research through to the provision of services within the framework of industrial development. The new computer cluster installed by MEGWARE and containing approximately 240 nodes permits simulations used to clarify underlying, fundamental issues and other research and development work closely related to practical application. The systems are fitted with the latest Intel-Haswell technology.


CERN awards MEGWARE another contract in a multiple-digit million euro range

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research into the underlying physical principles of our world. Researchers at CERN probe the fundamental structure of the universe, investigating the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide at close to the speed of light. This involves a staggering technical effort to manufacturer and operate the systems, and places extreme requirements in the data analysis tasks that the computers are asked to perform. Here, MEGWARE was awarded the contract to boost the computing capacity in the IT data centres, and is scheduled to deliver over 3000 new server systems based on Intel-Haswell technology by the end of March 2015.


Expansion of HPC systems at the German Weather Service

MEGWARE expanded the high performance computer from the German Weather Service in Offenbach and installed two new Linux cluster, each with 260 Intel Xeon processors and a total capacity of 10.4 teraflops/s. Both HPC systems are used as front-end processors for the installed Cray XC30. They process meteorological data and provide model calculations in form of maps and meteograms.


Successful completion of phase 2 at the North German Association to Promote High and Highest Performance Computing

MEGWARE supports the expansion of the new supercomputer at the North German Association to Promote High and Highest Performance Computing (HLRN III) as a partner of Cray. The HLRN III Association operates a massively parallel supercomputer and was significantly expanded in the second phase. MEGWARE delivered the SMP part based on 64 compute blades with Intel Sandy Bridge processor technology in Hannover.
