LISA, Leonardo Improved Supercomputing Architecture, is a Cineca project that aims to upgrade Leonardo's supercomputing architecture.
EuroHPC Joint Undertaking recently approved Cineca's expression of interest in upgrading the Leonardo supercomputer, with the aim of increasing its computing capacity by 100 PFlofps. The upgrade aims at both a considerable increase in performance and a broadening of the use cases that can be well addressed by the supercomputing system.
The upgrade will be based on Leonardo's modular architecture and aims to add two more computing modules. One module will be based on conventional high-bandwidth memory nodes, the other will be a brand new high-end accelerated module, capable of delivering top-of-the-line efficiency in terms of performance.
