The 8th bwHPC Symposium this year will take place on

November 28, 2022

and will be hosted at the High-Performance Computing Center of the University of Stuttgart (HLRS).

The bwHPC symposium offers a unique opportunity to actively engage in a dialog between scientific users, operators of bwHPC services, and the bwHPC support centers. Its focus is on the presentation of scientific projects and success stories carried out with the help of bwHPC high-performance computing in the context of the BaW├╝ data federation.

The symposium will be free of charge and open to researchers from all scientific fields. Currently, the bwHPC symposium is planned as a face-to-face event. If necessitated by the infection situation, a switch to an online event is possible.

Information on the registration and the agenda will follow in due time and will also be available online:

FIDO2 and TOTP Token as a Second Factor for bwHPC and NEMO2

The use of a second factor to secure logins to services is becoming increasingly mandatory. bwHPC currently uses time-based one-time passwords (TOTP) or Yubico OTP as a second factor for SSH logins. We have looked at some hardware security tokens for bwIDM/bwHPC that can be used instead of a mobile phone.

News on NEMO2 Procurement

The initial partition of NEMO2, consisting of around 140 Milan nodes and 1000 terabytes (one petabyte) of high-speed storage space, has been ordered. A tender for a GPU partition and a second CPU partition will be opened in early 2024.

Enforcing Two-factor Authentication on NEMO

We will enforce two-factor authentication for NEMO logins in November. Currently, this security feature can be tested on our vis1/2 visualization nodes.
