New Atos accelerator blade allows JUWELS BullSequana process to turn out to be the most highly effective supercomputer in Europe

Paris, France, May fourteen 2020

Atos, a worldwide chief in electronic transformation, currently announces its new BullSequana X2415, the first supercomputer in Europe to combine NVIDIA’s Ampere next-generation graphics processing unit architecture, the NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Core GPU. This new supercomputer blade will deliver unparalleled computing energy to raise application general performance for HPC and AI workloads, tackling the troubles of the exascale era. The BullSequana X2415 blade will boost computing energy by a lot more than 2* and enhance power use many thanks to Atos’ 100% extremely successful h2o-cooled patented DLC (Immediate Liquid Cooling) resolution, which utilizes heat h2o to neat the equipment.

Forschungszentrum Julich Ralf-Uwe Limbach

Forschungszentrum Jülich will combine this new blade into its booster module, extending its current JUWELS BullSequana supercomputer, building it the first process worldwide the use this new engineering. The JUWELS Booster will supply scientists throughout Europe with considerably improved computational means. Some of the jobs it will gasoline are the European Commission’s  Human Mind Project  and the Jülich Laboratories of  “Climate Science” and “Molecular Systems”. After fully deployed this summertime the upgraded supercomputing process, operated underneath ParTec’s program ParaStation Modulo, is predicted to supply a computational peak general performance of a lot more than 70 Petaflops/s building it the most highly effective supercomputer in Europe and a showcase for European exascale architecture.

“By integrating the ideal systems readily available, such as this hottest blade from Atos which involves NVIDIA’s highly effective A100 GPU into our supercomputer, we are in a position to raise our supercomputing energy. This is an significant milestone on our route to attain our final goal of supplying exascale capabilities to science and market” claimed Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC).

“We’re happy to be 1 of the first supercomputer manufacturers worldwide to incorporate NVIDIA’s A100 GPU and to be in a position to provide scientists worldwide the best application general performance for their HPC and AI workloads claimed Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.  “We’re definitely fired up to be functioning with Jülich to raise its computing energy and to empower its JUWELS process to turn out to be the most highly effective supercomputer in Europe.”

“Atos is 1 of the top gamers environment-broad in the significant finish of the server market place. It is the top European-dependent seller of HPC programs, largely due to the general performance and energy of its BullSequana programs, its solid technological experience and innovation and its skill to successfully take care of significant-scale jobs globally. It has doubled its existence in the TOP500 ranking over the last five several years and its server market place share worldwide proceeds to grow. We see Atos as 1 of the crucial supercomputing manufacturers that will most likely profit over the next several several years as desire for exascale programs will become a lot more considerable.” said Steve Conway, Senior Advisor at Hyperion Exploration.

The new blade characteristics an NVIDIA HGX-A100 base-board geared up with four NVIDIA A100 GPUs connected through 3rd-generation NVIDIA NVLink™ engineering, alongside two AMD EPYC CPUs and up to four NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand ports connected through a Dragonfly+ configuration. The NVIDIA Ampere architecture is a groundbreaking engineering accomplishment that delivers a large general performance improvement over the prior generation for AI teaching and inference. The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU characteristics the world’s most significant seven-nanometer processor, with a lot more than 54 billion transistors. This group of systems, together with the NVIDIA market place-top ecosystem of over seven-hundred GPU-accelerated HPC apps and assistance from NGC, will allow for scientists to strike the ground managing with containerized program optimized for the progress and deployment of GPU-accelerated HPC and AI jobs.

The BullSequana X2415 will be readily available in Q2 of 2020.
