Software Heritage’s Italian mirror in Bologna

Heritage3/11/2019 – The Big Data Valley in Emilia-Romagna keeps on growing. The Enea Center will be the first in Italy to host Software Heritage, keeping a full replica of the archive, which now contains more than 6 billion unique source files, a modern Library of Alexandria with an unprecedented collection of source codes and algorithms.

This initiative is part of a much wider context that sees Emilia-Romagna as a top region as concerns the digital transformation of the manufacturing system, with the Big Data Technopole of Bologna as one of the most advanced supercomputing centres in the world. Besides the Enea Center, the Technopole will host ECMWF (European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts), CINECA-INFN (with a new HPC super-computer in collaboration with EuroHPC Joint Undertaking), BI-REX (Competence Center Industry 4.0) and many other actors. The Big Data Association, born in Emilia-Romagna, includes players that manage 90% of the Italian supercomputing resources.
