CénitS is the Extremadura Supercomputing, Technological Innovation and Research Center aimed to promote and provide, HPC services and advanced communications to the research communities of Extremadura, or that company or institution that requests it and thus contribute through technological improvement and innovation, improving the competitiveness of enterprises.

From 2009, until the end of 2017, CénitS managed LUSITANIA, the first supercomputer in Extremadura, which has provided researchers, innovators and technologists with a resource capable of satisfying requirements that could not otherwise be addressed, offering intensive calculation services and advanced communications to the research community, companies, institutions and technology centers of Extremadura.

Since the end of 2015, CénitS has the LUSITANIA II Supercomputer, reaching a calculation capacity of 89.19 TFlops, thus considerably increasing the available power. 

Since the beginning of 2020, Extremadura has had the LUISITANIA III supercomputer, notable increasing the computing resources offered by the COMPUTAEX Foundation, reaching a total supercomputing calculation capacity of 93 TFlops plus 120 TFlops of graphic computing.
