A joint research group of Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB), BMBF research campus MODAL, RIKEN, and Kyushu University has achieved 10th place in the world in the Single-Source-Shortest-Path (SSSP) category of the Graph500, an international performance ranking of supercomputers for large-scale graph analysis. The Graph500 Committee announced this ranking on May 30th, 2022, at the international conference on High-Performance Computing (ISC2022)  held at the Congress Center Hamburg in Hamburg, Germany. The result was achieved by computing the shortest path from one starting node to all other nodes in a graph with nearly 275 billion nodes and over 4 trillion edges. Using 121.920 computing cores in parallel, 197.7 billion edges per second could be traversed.
