4 Steinbuch Centre for Computing The Information Technology Centre of KIT With the creation of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) also the Steinbuch Centre for Computing (SCC) has been launched. This new scientific institution results from the merger of the Computing Centre of the Universität Karlsruhe (TH) and the Institute for Scientific Computing of the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe. Both partners have ranked for decades among the most powerful scientific computing centres in Germany. Already since 1996 they have cooperated in the Virtual Computing Centre whose resources the scientists of both institutions can use. The activities of the SCC comprise the classical and specific tasks of a modern IT service centre in science as well as own research and developments aiming particularly at a permanent and innovative optimisation of the IT services.
6 Special Competences Provisioning and development of secure, reliable, ubiquitously available, process-integrated, customer-oriented services Promotion of research, teaching, study, further education and administration (about 8,000 employees, 20,000 students) by excellent IT services as well as competent support of research, development and innovation projects involvement in teaching and support of study as well as education and further education furtherance of the own staff members Major centre for modelling, simulation and optimisation
7 High Performance and Grid Computing parallel and distributed alogrithms and data structure numerics and optimisation computer systems and architecture simulation and performance evaluation parallel and distributed systems grid computing and virtualisation networking and communication systems IT and service management data management pre- and post-processing tools and programming S t e i n b u c h C e n t r e f o r C o m p u t i n g interdisciplinary projects with service and support for other research areas
8 Leading Centre in High Performance and Grid Computing Operation of the State s High Performance Computer Both institutions can look back on a long tradition in operation and use of high performance computers. The SCC operates powerful supercomputers, amongst others the High Performance Computer HP XC4000 of the State of Baden-Württemberg with 3,000 processors and a peak performance of 15.6 TFLOP/s. Within the Baden-Württemberg High Performance Computing Competence Centre (hkz-bw) the system is available to academic and industrial users from all over Germany. They benefit especially from the machine s very high stability as well as the internationally accepted system and application know-how of the SCC. Tier-1 Grid Computing Centre For several years the SCC-partners have also been attending to the innovative topic Grid Computing. It permits the use of spaciously distributed computer resources and thus the solution of entirely new problem classes. The Grid Computing Centre Karlsruhe (GridKa) is one of the worldwide tier-1 grid computing centres for high energy physics applications. Furthermore SCC supports the national D-Grid community with large scale compute and data services. SCC develops system software for grid computing as well as numerical methods for computer-aided simulation and solution of engineering problems.
10 Research and Development The main focus of research and development at SCC lies on HPC & Simulation and Scientific Computing. Other fields are IT management, web engineering, service-oriented architectures as well as distributed systems, network services, IT security and virtualisation. Furthermore the SCC is involved in numerous research projects inside and outside KIT.
