Scientific Computing Center PLEIADES

PLEIADES as an Interdisciplinary Computing Cluster for the University of Wuppertal

In 2008, PLEIADES was originally founded by the experimental particle physics group as part of the ATLAS experiment at CERN. Over time, other working groups joined, for example from the fields of computational fluid mechanics or astro particle- and hadron-physics.

In june 2021, through cooperation of many research groups in the Interdisziplinäres Zentrum 2, the PLEIADES cluster has been extended to 14848 CPU Cores, a SAN Backend and a GPU Cluster, as part of the "Antrag auf Großgeräte nach Art. 91b GG". Funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). 2304 additional CPU cores were added in an update in June 2022.
