Adjusted normal operations of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre as of 25 May 2021

In accordance with the preventive measures against the spread of the coronavirus published by the management of Forschungszentrum Jülich on 21 May, the Jülich Supercomputing Centre is switching to adjusted normal operations on 25 May and adjusting its range of services. Please note the information on the services and availability of our support teams.

Supercomputer JUWELS


Jülich Supercomputing Centre operates computers of the highest performance class. The supercomputers JUWELS and JURECA are currently among the most powerful supercomputers in the world.


Quantum computing

Prof. Kristel Michielsen's group at JSC is working on methods and models with which complex quantum systems can be simulated on supercomputers.

Europe’s First Quantum Computer with More Than 5,000 Qubits Launched at Jülich

A quantum annealer with more than 5,000 qubits has been put into operation at Forschungszentrum Jülich. The Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) and D-Wave Systems, a leading provider of quantum computing systems, today launched the company’s first cloud-based quantum service outside North America. The new system is located at Jülich and will work closely with the supercomputers at JSC in future. The annealing quantum computer is part of the Jülich UNified Infrastructure for Quantum computing (JUNIQ), which was established in autumn 2019 to provide researchers in Germany and Europe with access to various quantum systems.


Science: How Brain Research Makes New Demands on Supercomputing

In the latest issue of Science, Katrin Amunts and Thomas Lippert explain how advances in neuroscience demand high-performance computing technology and will ultimately need exascale computing power. The construction of a supercomputer capable of 10 to the power of 18 computing operations per second has been considered the next big step in supercomputing for many years.

Supercomputer JUWELS


JSC offers computer resources of the highest performance class to its users. With JUWELS and JURECA, it is one of the most powerful computer centres in Europe.
