The IT department provides the computer infrastructure to all employees of the Institute. Service includes giving direct support in case of usage problems and supporting AEI members in case of more specialized IT problems. The IT department runs the high-performance computer cluster Datura (mainly used for numerical simulations).
The administration at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) supports the scientific departments, research groups, and central facilities at the institute. [more]
The Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics runs huge computing facilities in Potsdam-Golm and Hannover. The Hannover facilities provide computing power for analysis tasks, in which gravitational-wave detector data are searched for astrophysical signals. The facilities in Potsdam-Golm are used for complex numerical simulations as well as for gravitational wave data analysis.
