The Gauß-Allianz is a non-profit association for the promotion of science and research. To this end, it supports the scientific community in Germany by creating the conditions for sustainable and efficient use of supercomputing resources of the top performance classes, in particular through the coordination and pooling of complementary skills and diversified computer architectures and the associated access structure.
The mission of the Gauß-Allianz is to coordinate the HPC related activities of the members. With the provision of versatile computing architectures and by combining the expertise of the participating centers, this creates the ecosystem necessary for computational science. Strengthening the research and increasing the visibility to compete on an international level are further goals of the Gauß-Allianz. It is especially an important milestone to maintain the leading role of Germany in the european supercomputing activities.
