Teraflop Workbench

The Teraflop Workbench project is a collaboration between the High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) and NEC to support the users to achieve the their research goals using high performance computing.  As part of the Teraflop Workbench, the Teraflop Workbench since 2004 has become a meeting platform for scientists, application developers, international experts, and hardware designers to discuss the current state and future directions of supercomputing with the aim of achieving the highest sustained application performance.

The Teraflop Workbench project focuses on current and future trends of hardware and software developments.  We observe a strong tendency to heterogeneous environment at the hardware level.  At the same time, applications become increasingly heterogeneous by including multi-physics or multi-scale effects.  The goal of the current studies of the Teraflop Workbench is to gain inside into the development of both components

The overall target is to help scientists to run their applications in the most efficient and most convenient way on the hardware best suited for their purpose.
