Atos multiplies supercomputing capacity by 12 at CESGA in Spain with new “Finisterrae III”

Santiago de Compostela (Galicia, Spain), Paris (France) July 29, 2021

Atos has been selected by the Galician Supercomputing Center (CESGA), to design, provide and set up a new supercomputing procedure, named Finisterrae III, dependent on Atos’ BullSequana X supercomputing architecture, that will multiply the latest capacities of the middle by twelve, though offering huge storage capacity. The deal also contains a 30-qubit Atos Quantum Finding out Device (Atos QLM30), which destinations CESGA as a pioneer in Spain in quantum simulation.

CESGA will use the supercomputer for investigation jobs in collaboration with university and market researchers in Galicia for many strategic areas of science and technologies these as nanotechnology, new elements and industrial processes, health and fitness and life sciences and ocean sciences. It will also market the use of HPC and Major Details in SMEs.

It will enable buyers to adopt new Synthetic Intelligence, Device Finding out and Deep Finding out strategies and use these in supercomputing. It will also market Sector 4. and the Industrial Electronic Innovation Hub of Galicia, bringing supercomputing strategies to public administrations and extending the use of supercomputing to other areas of information, these as Social Sciences and Humanities.

The fundamental design basic principle of the Finisterrae III venture is to give a practical, open, productive, versatile, and adaptable infrastructure for diverse computational paradigms. In this perception, the venture will give obtain to emerging technologies, particularly Quantum Computing, thanks to the Atos QLM, which will enable professionals, builders, and buyers to teach on the equipment.

“We are happy to give CESGA with this new supercomputing procedure developed with the hottest technologies which is also a trustworthy and superior-overall performance tool that contributes to the progression of science and technologies”, stated Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos. “With this new deal Atos confirms its knowledge in providing superior-overall performance computing options, opening computing new horizons to the constantly demanding demands of our customers.”

The targets of CESGA are the universalization of Study, Improvement and Innovation (R&D&I), facilitating obtain to these sources to a increased quantity of entities and companies, as well as producing a connection in between areas of information (mainstreaming) and supporting the rising complexity of investigations.

Quantum simulation

The Atos QLM is a simulator that allows buyers to establish, optimize and examination quantum programs. Combining an extremely-compact, superior-run equipment with a universal programming language. It allows researchers and engineers to establish and experiment with quantum program and is the world’s only quantum program enhancement and simulation equipment. The procedure simulates the guidelines of physics, which are at the heart of quantum computing, to calculate the correct execution of a quantum method with double-digit precision.

Technological technical specs:

Finisterrae III will multiply the computing capacity of the former CESGA supercomputer by twelve, offering a computing electrical power of 4 PetaFLOPS by 354 computing nodes outfitted with hottest generation Intel Xeon Ice Lake 8352Y processors of 32 cores at 2.2GHz.

It also incorporates a total of one hundred forty four GPU accelerators: Nvidia A100 and Nvidia T4 GPU.

Alongside one another, the supercomputer nodes have 118 TB combination memory and 5 PB disk storage capacity dependent on NetApp technologies.

Storage – For regional storage, nodes consist of NVMe SSD good point out drives, with an combination capacity of 355TB and blazing-rapid facts enter/ output speed. The new procedure also has a 20 PB capacity long lasting facts storage subsystem.

Interconnect – The nodes are linked by a superior capacity, quite small latency Infiniband HDR100 interconnect community.
