The technological infrastructure
The Competence Center can rely on the technological infrastructure provided by CINECA and Leonardo, which are part of the large European Computing Centers supporting scientific and technological research.
Part of this infrastructure are the Leonardo supercomputer (managed by CINECA) and the Da Vinci supercomputer (managed by Leonardo), which rank in the Top500 globally. Two key assets serving research, industry and public administration.
Leonardo 4° TOP500
250 PFlops HPL
Leonardo is one of the most powerful supercomputing systems in the world, capable of performing more than 250 Petaflops, or more than 250 million billion operations per second. Remarkably, each individual GPU-based rack provides as much computing power as the entire BlugeneQ Fermi system, which was decommissioned only in 2015.
Leonardo is a key enabling technology with the goal of increasing the competitiveness of Italian and European research, paving the way for the next era of exascale in Europe.
Da Vinci 164° TOP500
The davinci-1 supercomputer is one of the most powerful in Aerospace, Defense and Security, and a resource for accelerating technological transformation toward digitization of the industry.
The davinci-1 High Performance Computing architecture is an integrated supercomputing and cloud computing platform, combining flexibility and computational power, enabling algorithm deployment, customization by technology platform, and computation of the countless interactions between generated data.
…Inoltre EUROHPC Joint Undertaking
EuroHPC JU is continuously growing by building powerful supercomputers in all European countries. Industry, public administration and academia have the opportunity to access these infrastructures for free through calls for proposals.
