A new accelerated HPC partition will be installed at Cineca and should be available to production early 2020. This system, based on IBM Power9 chips and equipped with NVIDIA Volta V100 GPUs, opens the way to the pre-exascale Leonardo supercomputer expected to be installed in 2021.
January 2021, a new pre-exascale HPC machine, called Leonardo, is starting its computational life in Bologna, Italy. Watch the video made to tell what the impact of the supercomputing is in our lives and to anticipate some data on Leonardo.
The Italian supercomputer MARCONI, available to the Italian and European scientific community by ISCRA and PRACE, is now number 19 with ~10,5 PFlops in the November 2019 Top500 list of the fastest supercomputers in the world. Two Cineca systems are ranked in the list.
Once again, we'll be present at Supercomputing 2019 in Denver, Colorado, at booth #957. Meet our HPC experts for an overview of our activities and for talking about new opportunities of collaboration and services. Visit us November 18 to 21 and we'll tell you about the perspectives of development of HPC in Cineca
