The Leibniz Supercomputing Centre of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BADW-LRZ) is the IT service provider for Munich’s universities and a growing number of scientific institutions in the greater Munich area and in the state of Bavaria.
The Centre is a front-runner nationally and internationally in High-Performance Computing (HPC). It supports outstanding research and education in various scientific domains by providing stable, professional, reliable, secure, and energy efficient IT services based on the latest IT technologies. The competencies of about 200 employees are well grounded on many years of extensive operational experience, research on latest IT topics, as well as close co-operation with manufacturers and scientific clients.
In its 25-year existence Chemniz-based MEGWARE Computer Vertrieb und Service GmbH has established itself as one of the leading supercomputing specialists in Europe. Since its inception, the Company has relied on an extensive experience in the development and installation of high-performance computing (HPC) systems and Linux clusters. The company offers competent planning before procurement, manufacture and testing of the complete system up to turnkey installation, service and support and has developed innovative products, including chassis, PDUs, direct liquid cooling on the chip or management software for clustering applications.
MEGWARE unites the strengths of around 50 excellently trained, highly motivated staff. They have delivered and installed ca. 1000 high performance computers to research institutes, universities and
commercial customers throughout Europe. For example, the current TOP500 list includes 5 MEGWARE systems, and the company recently completed the delivery of a computing cluster at CERN consisting of over 2800 nodes with a theoretical peak performance of over 2 GFlop/s.
MNM Team applies its vast expertise in the management of complex networked IT systems from basic research to business applications, and from theoretical foundations to operational systems providing services to tens of thousands of daily users.
The team’s 30 researchers hold positions at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Technische Universität München, Universität der Bundeswehr München and Leibniz Supercomputing Centre. Thus the team brings together the highest level research organisations in Bavaria and one of the biggest supercomputing centres in the world.
