Cineca is currently one of the Large Scale Facilities in Europe and it is a PRACE Tier-0 hosting site.
Cineca's HPC systems are:
- MARCONI: is the Tier-0 system based on the LENOVO NeXtScale platform and Intel Xeon Phi processors. It has been gradually completed since 2016, and its final configuration comprehends three partitions: the first partition (Marconi-A1) with Intel Broadwell, is into production since July 2016, has been closed on Sept 2018; the second partition (Marconi-A2) with Intel KnightsLanding is into production since January 2017, the third partition (Marconi-A3) with SkyLake is into production since August 2017, upgraded on Jan 2018 and finally on Nov 2018.
Marconi is classified in Top500 list among the most powerful supercomputer: rank 12 in November 2016, and rank 19 in the November 2019 list.
- GALILEO: It has been renewed in March 2018 with Intel Xeon E5-2697 v4 (Broadwell) nodes, available for italian research community.
- D.A.V.I.D.E.: (Development of an Added Value Infrastructure Designed in Europe) Developed by an Italian vendor by means of a Pre Commercial Procurement. It is the energy-aware, High Performance Cluster, based on OpenPOWER8 servers and NVIDIA Tesla P100 data center GPUs. It entered the Top500 and Green500 lists in June 2017, and entered into production in January 2018.
- LEONARDO, the new pre-exascale supercomputer will be installed in 2020. Leonardo pre-exascale project receives funding from the European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (JU).
