The University of Stuttgart has ordered two supercomputers called Hunter and Herder from HPE for its High Performance Computing Center. These systems will cost €115 million and they are expected to take the HLRS up to exascale level in two stages by 2027.

Anna Steiger, Chancellor at the University of Stuttgart, said, "Energy efficiency with optimal support for cutting-edge science is of paramount importance for us at the University of Stuttgart. With Hunter and Herder, we are responding to the challenges of reducing CO2 emissions, while also enabling both improved computing power and outstanding energy performance."

Petra Olschowski (Baden-Württemberg Minister of Science, Research, and Arts) said, "As part of the University of Stuttgart, HLRS has a key role to play — it is not just the impressive performance of the supercomputer but also the methodological knowledge that the center has assembled that helps our cutting-edge computational research to achieve breathtaking results, for example in climate protection or for more environmentally sustainable mobility.”
