In July, the new building fortheHLRSaswellasStuttgart’snewNECsupercomputer–whichisleading edge in Germany for quite some time – have been inaugurated in an impr- sive celebration. Almost simultaneously, the SSC Karlsruhe is ?nalizing the installation of a very large high performance system complex from HP, built from many hundreds of Intel Itanium processors. Additionally, a fast network connection has been opened. With a bandwidth of 40 Gbit/s it is not only the ?rst installation of this kind in Germany, but it also brings the machine roomsofHLRSandSSCKarlsruheveryclosetogether. Finally,theUniversity Heidelberg – especially the WiR – has joined the Center for Competence in VI Preface High-Performance Computing in Baden-Wur ¨ ttemberg (HKZ-BW) to further strengthenthe aspects of computationalscience. With the investment ofmore than 60 Million Euro,we – as the users of such a valuable infrastructure – are not only thankful to science managers and politicians, but also to the people runningthesecomponentsaspartoftheir dailybusiness,ona24-7level.
