In this international competition of the HPC Advisory Council  which is carried out during the International Supercomputing Conference 2013 (ISC’13) in Leiptzig, our team named “kluster” competes against other international teams.

The goal of the competition  is the construction of a compute cluster from state-of-the-art hardware in order to gain the most performance while being energy-efficient. According to the rules of the competition, the team with the cluster that processes a set of benchmarks from scientific software the fastest with respect to a power restriction of 3000 Watt is the winner. To overcome this challenge, the “kluster” team has to apply methods and techniques from the scientific domains of mathematics, physics and computer sciences.
