Consultation, training, tutorials, workshops


While all facilities offer low-threshold access to HPC through local consulting services and adjusted documents, the collaboration regarding documentation and realization of events assures additional value for the centers themselves and among the users.

In consultation with national initiatives for the unification and extension of the HPC documentation, e.g. in DFG-funded „Performance engineering“ projects and within the Gauß Alliance, content contributions occur in the arising media (e.g., HPC-WIKI). Furthermore, a coordinated integration of these contents is carried out in the center-specific documentation.

A close exchange of know-how on similar initiatives of other federal states is being established (e.g. Competence Center for High Performance Computing in Hessen (HKHLR).
