Leonardo Pre-exascale Supercomputer

The European supercomputer Leonardo, hosted and managed by Cineca, that will be installed in  2022 in the new data center located in the Technopole of Bologna, is one of the three pre-exascale systems announced by EuroHPC JU

Cineca has a long history – since its establishment in 1969 – in supplying one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world. The strong partnership with the EuroHPC initiative has led to the realization of the Leonardo project, a significant step forward in raising European research in the field of computational sciences. The ultimate goal is to strengthen the European presence in high-performance computing, a strategic asset to promote the technological growth of the member states of the Union.

The continuous demand for computational resources necessary to process an ever-expanding amount of data requires providing researchers with increasingly high-performance technologies. Furthermore, the launch of new leading Italian and European initiatives, which face increasingly advanced computational challenges, are based on the availability of these technologies.

For example, the Leonardo supercomputer will contribute at the mitigation and management of risks due to extreme situations, natural events, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic events, flash flood, for the fight against pandemic and epidemic situations.

Leonardo's main goals are

Sustain the computing capability for the Italian and European researchers

The computational power of Leonardo will boost scientific exellences and industrial strenght across Europe.

Help ensure EU sovereignty on strategic technologies​

High Performance Computing is crucial to achieve progresses in research for the European Union as a whole.

tackle relevant and urgent societal challenges

Leonardo will be a critical tool for understanding and responding to complex challenges and transforming them into innovation opportunities.

why a Supercomputer?

But what is the relationship between supercomputing and our daily life?

Thanks to archival materials, videos and images of scientific simulations, films and articles, this video tells about the projects and scientific challenges that is possible to takle with the aid of a supercomputer.

A story that projects from the past into the future with Leonardo, destined to be one of the most powerful European supercomputers.
