Forschungszentrum Jülich – a member of the Helmholtz Association – is one of the largest research centres in Europe. It pursues cutting-edge interdisciplinary research addressing the challenges facing society in the fields of health, energy and the environment, and information technologies. Within the Forschungszentrum, the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) is one of the three national supercomputing centres in Germany as part of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS). Presently, JSC operates some of the highest performance European systems.

JSC has over 30 years expertise in providing supercomputer services to national and international user communities. It undertakes research and development in HPC architectures, performance analysis, HPC software and tools, grid computing, and project management.


FZJ is the Coordinator of the DEEP-SEA project and responsible for the management activities in the work package “Coordination”. On the technical side FZJ drives the overall concept and technical designs as leader of the Design and Developers Group (DDG), and takes a strong co-design approach reinforced through its leadership of the work package “Co-design applications” including the application support team and benchmarking. FZJ will contribute to the application profiling and system monitoring. FZJ is involved in setting up the SW architecture and SW integration. Finally, FZJ will also be involved in communication and outreach activities.


JSC was responsible for the DEEP-EST, -ER and DEEP project management and led the effort to develop DEEP-ER's I/O software stack and the application support team. The latter helps application developers in their porting effort, with the final goal of a full validation of the DEEP-ER concepts. Last but not least, the Cluster-Booster architecture further developed in the DEEP-ER project is an invention of JSC, who first proposed it within the DEEP project. Exploiting new memory technologies to improve its I/O performance and its resiliency was also a JSC's initiative, which became reality in the very fruitful collaboration established within the DEEP-ER Project.
