The Center for Information Services and High Performance Computing (ZIH) is a central scientific unit of TU Dresden with a strong competence in parallel computing and software tools. We have a strong commitment to support real users, collaborating to create new algorithms, applications and to tackle the problems that need to be solved to create new scientific insight with computational methods. Our compute complex "Hochleistungs-Rechner-/-Speicher-Komplex" (HRSK) is focused on data-intensive computing. High scalability, big memory and fast I/O-systems are the outstanding properties of this project, aside from the significant performance increase. The infrastructure is provided not only to TU Dresden but to all universities and public research institutes in Saxony.
