The ParTec AG is specialised in the development and support of a comprehensive suite of HPC systems management tools and a runtime environment specifically tuned for the largest distributed-memory supercomputers in existence today and beyond. ParTec’s unrivaled expertise in developing HPC software includes the self-developed ParaStation MPI and tools like TicketSuite and HealthChecker. In conjunction with professional services, consultancy and support, ParTec was elected as the partner of choice in some of the leading HPC sites across Europe. For almost 20 years, ParTec has been a strong general purpose HPC specialist in the German and EMEA HPC market.

ParTec’s ParaStation Modulo is extensively used in production environments, e.g. on the general purpose JURECA Cluster system with 2.2 PFlop/s peak performance and ranked no. 51 in the June 2016 TOP500 list, as well as on the JURECA Booster system with 5 PFlop/s, both operated by the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC). ParTec also supports the latest system, JUWELS Module 1 with 12 PFlop/s peak performance (ranked no. 23 in the June 2018 Top500 list).

Besides the support of some smaller, experimental systems, ParTec is the chosen partner for the co-design and support of the JUROPA 3, JuAMS and Juceda cluster systems, likewise located in the Jülich Supercomputing Centre.

Together with the Forschungszentrum Jülich and Intel GmbH, ParTec is one of the partners of the ExaCluster Laboratory (ECL), developing new promising HPC architectures and prototypes to enter the Exascale era.


Leveraging its profound experience in HPC in general and in the MSA architecture in particular, the SME ParTec will continue to work on improving the efficiency and the usability of heterogeneous systems on all levels, deemed essential on the way to exascale. ParTec will lead the work package “Software Architecture and System Software”, addressing system software and architectural topics for MSA-based systems. In this work package, ParTec will lead the work on the low-level communication stack and containerisation. ParTec will provide central elements of the DEEP-SEA runtime system by extending the ParaStation Management. On the system level, ParTec will significantly contribute to several tasks in the work package “System-level programming” addressing malleability and tuning, as well as interoperability and composability aspects of ParaStation MPI with other programming paradigms. ParTec will furthermore support FZJ in the work package “Coordination” on the management and coordination topics, especially regarding intra-project communication and quality control.


In the DEEP-EST project ParTec participated as FZJ’s Third Party. Building on its middleware ParaStation Modulo, namely the MPI and process management, ParTec’s focus was on designing and implementing improvements to the scheduling and resource management for the Modular Supercomputing Architecture (MSA), as well as the improvements and extensions to the programming models and libraries employed in DEEP-EST. In addition, ParTec supported FZJ internally in the DEEP-EST project with the communication between the partners, the quality control process of the deliverables, and the preparation of reviews.
