JADE - Jülich Aachen Data Exchange

The Jülich Aachen Data Exchange (JADE) tries to establish a flexible and scalable data management tool that addresses the specific needs and requirement of domain scientists to exchange data in a convenient and efficient way. 

Beside the support of the service infrastructure for a distributed file system, JADE further investigates other software solutions, such as iRods and investigates actively in the development of these software solutions.



Apply for computing time

Applications for computing time on the JARA-HPC partition can be submitted by any scientist of RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich qualified in his or her respective field of research. Computing resources are allocated on the basis of independent referees' reports and according to the guidelines of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). 

Prospective users can apply for computing time twice a year at defined periods of time.

The JARA-HPC Partition

The JARA-HPC Partition consists of contingents of the high-performance computers and supercomputers installed in Aachen (CLAIX) and Jülich (JUQUEEN and JURECA). The Partition was established in 2012 and is constantly being enhanced since then.

With the launch of the first stage of the new RWTH Compute Cluster “Claix” in November 2016, the JARA-HPC Partion provides more than 1 PFlops computing capacity for the exclusive use of Aachen’s and Jülich’s scientists.


As part of a cooperation project between RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich (JARA), a new database was created, that provides comprehensive overview of the main research areas in energy of the two institutions.
