New Atos accelerator blade allows JUWELS BullSequana system to become the most potent supercomputer in Europe

Paris, France, May well fourteen 2020

Atos, a worldwide chief in digital transformation, now announces its new BullSequana X2415, the 1st supercomputer in Europe to combine NVIDIA’s Ampere next-era graphics processing unit architecture, the NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Core GPU. This new supercomputer blade will deliver unprecedented computing energy to improve application general performance for HPC and AI workloads, tackling the troubles of the exascale era. The BullSequana X2415 blade will increase computing energy by more than two* and enhance electricity use many thanks to Atos’ one hundred% really economical water-cooled patented DLC (Immediate Liquid Cooling) option, which takes advantage of warm water to amazing the machine.

Forschungszentrum Jülich will combine this new blade into its booster module, extending its present JUWELS BullSequana supercomputer, producing it the 1st system around the globe the use this new technologies. The JUWELS Booster will supply scientists across Europe with significantly enhanced computational assets. Some of the initiatives it will gas are the European Commission’s  Human Brain Project  and the Jülich Laboratories of  “Climate Science” and “Molecular Systems”. When thoroughly deployed this summer season the upgraded supercomputing system, operated under ParTec’s software package ParaStation Modulo, is predicted to supply a computational peak general performance of more than 70 Petaflops/s producing it the most potent supercomputer in Europe and a showcase for European exascale architecture.

“By integrating the very best systems accessible, which include this newest blade from Atos which includes NVIDIA’s potent A100 GPU into our supercomputer, we are capable to improve our supercomputing energy. This is an important milestone on our route to get to our top aim of delivering exascale abilities to science and business” stated Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC).

“We’re very pleased to be a single of the 1st supercomputer manufacturers around the globe to include things like NVIDIA’s A100 GPU and to be capable to give scientists around the globe the best application general performance for their HPC and AI workloads stated Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.  “We’re actually psyched to be performing with Jülich to improve its computing energy and to permit its JUWELS system to become the most potent supercomputer in Europe.”

“Atos is a single of the leading gamers entire world-huge in the superior close of the server industry. It is the leading European-based mostly seller of HPC systems, largely due to the general performance and energy of its BullSequana systems, its strong technological skills and innovation and its skill to correctly deal with big-scale initiatives globally. It has doubled its existence in the TOP500 position over the final five many years and its server industry share around the globe continues to develop. We see Atos as a single of the important supercomputing manufacturers that will very likely gain over the next several many years as desire for exascale systems gets to be more considerable.” said Steve Conway, Senior Advisor at Hyperion Study.

The new blade characteristics an NVIDIA HGX-A100 base-board equipped with 4 NVIDIA A100 GPUs connected by using 3rd-era NVIDIA NVLink™ technologies, together with two AMD EPYC CPUs and up to 4 NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand ports connected by using a Dragonfly+ configuration. The NVIDIA Ampere architecture is a groundbreaking engineering achievement that delivers a large general performance advancement over the earlier era for AI education and inference. The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU characteristics the world’s major seven-nanometer processor, with more than fifty four billion transistors. This team of systems, along with the NVIDIA industry-leading ecosystem of over seven-hundred GPU-accelerated HPC purposes and support from NGC, will let scientists to hit the floor managing with containerized software package optimized for the advancement and deployment of GPU-accelerated HPC and AI initiatives.

The BullSequana X2415 will be accessible in Q2 of 2020.
