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

Centered 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, today announce that the initially EuroHPC supercomputer is now operational. This is the ‘Vega’ supercomputer, dependent on Atos’ BullSequana XH2000 architecture, which is now installed following a start out-up ceremony hosted by IZUM with the Key Minister of the Republic of Slovenia, Janez Janša, in attendance, alongside one another 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 region, is dependent at IZUM, a community infrastructural establishment and investigate organization established by the Government of the Republic of Slovenia. It will be utilised to support the improvement of major scientific, community sector and industrial apps in quite a few domains, which include personalized medicine, bio-engineering, climate forecasting, fight towards local weather change and identifying new products and drugs.

It will provide researchers from Slovenia and the EuroHPC community with a modern day infrastructure offering maximum efficiency for computing, info processing, higher-efficiency info evaluation (HPDA), Synthetic Intelligence (AI) and Device Mastering model improvement with quickly community connectivity to other computing centers in Slovenia and Europe.

Dr. Aleš Bošnjak, Director of IZUM: We’re delighted to announce the start out-up of the initially EuroHPC supercomputer listed here in Slovenia. Now we can travel forward our investigate and innovation jobs, in individual our HPC RIVR task style and design targets, supporting Slovenian and European researchers and people from the community and industry sectors, to fulfill new difficulties and further add 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-Efficiency Computing Joint Undertaking). Capable of executing much more than 6,eight petaflops (6,eight million billion calculations for each next), the system will be among the world’s top 5 supercomputers.

Agnes Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos concluded “As the major European supercomputer company, we are very pleased to be contributing to advancing investigate and innovation in Slovenia and in Europe. ‘Vega’, as section of the EuroHPC software and community, is section of a European worldclass supercomputing ecosystem and will enable Europe compete globally in strategic domains this kind of as synthetic intelligence, bio-engineering and the fight towards local weather change.”

Atos was awarded a 5-12 months €17.3 million euro agreement to source, put in and keep the BullSequana XH2000 ‘Vega’ supercomputer.
