We will present the status of the Bonn Correlator Center with emphasis on the geodetic correlation. The correlator center has been operated jointly by the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, the Bundesamt f"ur Kartographie und Geod"asie in Frankfurt with support from the Institute for Gedodesy and Geoinformation in Bonn. Correlation has been done with the DiFX software correlator. We will give a brief summary of our experience with correlating the CONT14 session, the first CONT to be correlated with DiFX. We will also discuss our plans for upgrading/renewing the HPC cluster in preparation for the expected impact of the future VGOS observations on the available computing and playback resources.
