Leonardo achieves another important certification, this time on the efficiency of its DDN exascaler-based storage system, and wins first place with a Bandwdith score of 807.12 GB/s, placing second overall on the Production List  of IO500.

The IO500 is one of the most important HPC storage performance rankings in the world. It has been widely recognized by research institutions including universities, national laboratories and commercial companies.

Since November 2017, the IO500 list has been published at major HPC conferences (SC in the United States and ISC in Germany). In this context, I/O performance has become an important indicator for measuring the efficiency of supercomputer applications. In particular, it measures storage performance using two key indicators: data bandwidth (GB/s) and read/write speed (IOPS)..

These important results confirm that the EuroHPC  JU machine operated by Cineca allows great flexibility to address the most demanding I/O use cases in terms of bandwidth and IOPS.
