On 5 July 2019, the Joint Science Conference (GWK) decided on the recommendation of the German Council of Science and Humanities (WR) to fund a new high-performance computer at the University of Cologne. CHEOPS 2 will - besides providing a powerful computing infrastructure - support research focused on the analysis of large amounts of data as well as the methodical improvement of simulation and visualization.

The 11.1 million euros will be used to expand CHEOPS 2 in two phases in the coming years. The required space is already available: The new high performance computer will be housed in the new server hall at the RRZK.

It will not only be available to the university's core profile areas, but also to a proportion of scientific users from all over Germany.
