The Gauß-Allianz e.V. is a German association, in which academic computing centres team up to create the necessary infrastructure for the future of high performance computing (HPC) and Grid computing on a national level.
The mission of the Gauß-Allianz is to provide versatile computing architectures.
Combining the expertise of the participating centres creates the ecosystem necessary for computational science. The Gauß-Allianz is responsible for the National Grid Initiative for Germany (NGI-DE). Strengthening the research and increasing the visibility to compete on an international level are further goals of the Gauß-Allianz.
