and will cover all HPC tiers, i.e. performance levels defining peak performance and scalability requirements of codes applied. The HPC entrance level is designated as tier 3. Uniquely for Germany, Baden-Württemberg's HPC tier 3 provides aside a general purpose HPC cluster (designated as bwUniCluster) 4 research HPC cluster (designated as bwForClusters).
