Atos’ BullSequana powers the first EuroHPC supercomputer operational at IZUM in Slovenia

Dependent on Atos’ BullSequana XH2000, the ‘Vega’ supercomputer was inaugurated at the Institute of Info Science (IZUM) in Slovenia

Maribor (Slovenia), Paris (France) April 21, 2021

Atos and the Institute of Info Science (IZUM) in Maribor, Slovenia, these days announce that the to start with EuroHPC supercomputer is now operational. This is the ‘Vega’ supercomputer, dependent on Atos’ BullSequana XH2000 architecture, which is now mounted following a commence-up ceremony hosted by IZUM with the Key Minister of the Republic of Slovenia, Janez Janša, in attendance, jointly with the Govt Vice-President of the European Fee Margrethe Vestager, the Minister of Schooling, Science and Sport Dr. Simona Kustec and the Govt Director of EuroHPC Joint Undertaking Anders Dam Jensen.

Vega, the greatest supercomputer in the nation, is dependent at IZUM, a public infrastructural institution and analysis corporation established by the Govt of the Republic of Slovenia. It will be employed to assist the progress of leading scientific, public sector and industrial programs in several domains, like personalized medicine, bio-engineering, temperature forecasting, struggle in opposition to climate transform and getting new supplies and medicines.

It will provide researchers from Slovenia and the EuroHPC network with a fashionable infrastructure delivering highest general performance for computing, knowledge processing, substantial-general performance knowledge examination (HPDA), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning model progress with fast network connectivity to other computing centers in Slovenia and Europe.

Dr. Aleš Bošnjak, Director of IZUM: We’re delighted to announce the commence-up of the to start with EuroHPC supercomputer listed here in Slovenia. Now we can generate ahead our analysis and innovation tasks, in specific our HPC RIVR project structure plans, supporting Slovenian and European researchers and customers from the public and business sectors, to fulfill new problems and further lead to the regional and European HPC initiatives.”

Named Vega, after Slovenian mathematician Jurij Vega, the new petascale supercomputer will be co-owned and jointly operated by the EuroHPC JU (The European Higher-Overall performance Computing Joint Undertaking). Capable of executing more than six,8 petaflops (six,8 million billion calculations per second), the technique will be among the world’s prime 5 supercomputers.

Agnes Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos concluded “As the leading European supercomputer producer, we are proud to be contributing towards advancing analysis and innovation in Slovenia and in Europe. ‘Vega’, as aspect of the EuroHPC plan and network, is aspect of a European worldclass supercomputing ecosystem and will enable Europe compete globally in strategic domains these types of as synthetic intelligence, bio-engineering and the struggle in opposition to climate transform.”

Atos was awarded a 5-12 months €17.3 million euro contract to provide, set up and maintain the BullSequana XH2000 ‘Vega’ supercomputer.
