The Center for Scientific Computing (CSC) of the Goethe University Frankfurt currently operates two Linux-based computer clusters within the framework of the HHLR-GU (Hessisches Hochleistungsrechenzentrum der Goethe-Universität) to support numerically intensive studies in a variety of research fields, ranging from neuroscience to high-energy physics.
The CPU cluster FUCHS-CSC is available for HPC1) applications for users from all universities in the State of Hesse. FUCHS-CSC is located on the Riedberg campus of the Goethe University in Frankfurt. The water-cooled Goethe-HLR (the bigger of the two systems) is a combined CPU-GPU cluster and is located in the Industriepark Höchst area. As both systems are designed to support many types of applications (trivial and non-trivial), they provide an ideal HPC infrastructure for the scientific community.
