The Lise supercomputer is providing high-performance computing power for scientists in North Germany. The North German Supercomputing Alliance (Norddeutscher Verbund für Hoch- und Höchstleistungsrechnen – HLRN) operates a distributed supercomputer system. The users of the HLRN are supported by a transregional and interdisciplinary competence network consisting of application experts. Lise system being currently operated is part of the North-German Supercomputing Alliance (HLRN). Consultants from physics and materials science, chemistry, and bioinformatics as well as earth system research and engineering sciences provide advice to researchers from Berlin and the other member states of HLRN. The consultants support the efficient implementation of projects in both large-scale computing and data analysis, facilitating innovative research. During the inauguration, the top 40 positions of top500 (Nov2019) have been achieved with a very small footprint (only 14 racks) thanks to warm water cooling technology from CoolIT.
The system has been delivered together with Atos/Bull and Intel.
