The supercomputer Hazel Hen, a Cray XC40 system, is at the heart of HLRS’s high performance computing (HPC) system infrastructure. With a peak performance of 7.42 Petaflops (quadrillion floating point operations per second), Hazel Hen is one of the most powerful HPC systems in the world (position 8 of TOP500, 11/2015), as well as the fastest supercomputer in the European Union. Hazel Hen, which was taken into operation in October 2015, is based on the Intel® Haswell Processor and the Cray Aries network and is designed for sustained application performance and high scalability. Each node is equipped with 2 sockets, each with 12 cores and 128 GB of memory. The system-wide storage capacity is approximately 10 PB.
