Atos Launches First Supercomputer Equipped with NVIDIA A100 GPU

New Atos accelerator blade allows JUWELS BullSequana system to come to be the most powerful supercomputer in Europe

Paris, France, May possibly 14 2020

Atos, a worldwide leader in electronic transformation, right now announces its new BullSequana X2415, the initially supercomputer in Europe to combine NVIDIA’s Ampere future-technology graphics processing device architecture, the NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Main GPU. This new supercomputer blade will supply unparalleled computing electricity to strengthen application performance for HPC and AI workloads, tackling the worries of the exascale period. The BullSequana X2415 blade will increase computing electricity by a lot more than two* and enhance electrical power intake many thanks to Atos’ one hundred{bcdc0d62f3e776dc94790ed5d1b431758068d4852e7f370e2bcf45b6c3b9404d} hugely economical h2o-cooled patented DLC (Direct Liquid Cooling) alternative, which employs heat h2o to great the machine.

Forschungszentrum Jülich will combine this new blade into its booster module, extending its present JUWELS BullSequana supercomputer, earning it the initially system around the globe the use this new technologies. The JUWELS Booster will present researchers throughout Europe with substantially greater computational assets. Some of the projects it will gasoline are the European Commission’s  Human Brain Project  and the Jülich Laboratories of  “Climate Science” and “Molecular Systems”. Once fully deployed this summer the upgraded supercomputing system, operated below ParTec’s software package ParaStation Modulo, is anticipated to present a computational peak performance of a lot more than 70 Petaflops/s earning it the most powerful supercomputer in Europe and a showcase for European exascale architecture.

“By integrating the finest systems out there, like this newest blade from Atos which features NVIDIA’s powerful A100 GPU into our supercomputer, we are in a position to strengthen our supercomputing electricity. This is an vital milestone on our route to access our greatest aim of providing exascale abilities to science and industry” stated Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC).

“We’re happy to be 1 of the initially supercomputer producers around the globe to include things like NVIDIA’s A100 GPU and to be in a position to present researchers around the globe the optimum application performance for their HPC and AI workloads stated Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.  “We’re definitely thrilled to be doing the job with Jülich to strengthen its computing electricity and to permit its JUWELS system to come to be the most powerful supercomputer in Europe.”

“Atos is 1 of the top rated players world-vast in the higher finish of the server market place. It is the primary European-dependent seller of HPC methods, largely thanks to the performance and electricity of its BullSequana methods, its solid technological abilities and innovation and its capability to proficiently take care of huge-scale projects globally. It has doubled its presence in the TOP500 position in excess of the past 5 yrs and its server market place share around the globe continues to develop. We see Atos as 1 of the key supercomputing producers that will possible benefit in excess of the future couple of yrs as demand from customers for exascale methods will become a lot more sizeable.” said Steve Conway, Senior Advisor at Hyperion Analysis.

The new blade capabilities an NVIDIA HGX-A100 foundation-board geared up with four NVIDIA A100 GPUs linked through third-technology NVIDIA NVLink™ technologies, along with two AMD EPYC CPUs and up to four NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand ports linked through a Dragonfly+ configuration. The NVIDIA Ampere architecture is a groundbreaking engineering accomplishment that provides a huge performance enhancement in excess of the preceding technology for AI teaching and inference. The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Main GPU capabilities the world’s greatest 7-nanometer processor, with a lot more than fifty four billion transistors. This team of systems, along with the NVIDIA market place-primary ecosystem of in excess of seven hundred GPU-accelerated HPC purposes and support from NGC, will make it possible for researchers to hit the ground operating with containerized software package optimized for the enhancement and deployment of GPU-accelerated HPC and AI projects.

The BullSequana X2415 will be out there in Q2 of 2020.
