The infrastructure is the basis for high-performance computing in JARA CSD with the respective computing centers at Forschungszentrum Jülich (JSC) and RWTH Aachen (IT Center). The effective use of ever more complex high-end systems demands a close cooperation between those responsible for infrastructure and its users. New hard- and software components are being developed, tested at an early stage, and investigated in co-design projects together with hardware experts and users.

Scientific support and trainings for the use of high-performance computing is located in the infrastructure sites at Jülich and Aachen.
