This will be the most powerful supercomputer in Japanese Europe and is envisioned to be operational in July 2021

Paris (France), Prague (Czech Republic), Sofia (Bulgaria) 11 Might 2021

Atos currently announces that Bulgaria’s new EuroHPC supercomputer, which is primarily based on Atos’ powerful BullSequana XH2000 architecture, is now absolutely sent and assembled at Sofia Tech Park in Bulgaria. Atos was chosen to develop Bulgaria’s petascale supercomputer by the European Significant Functionality Computing Joint Endeavor (EuroHPC JU), the hosting entity, and the consortium “Petascale Supercomputer Bulgaria” (PetaSC-Bulgaria) whose foremost associate is Sofia Tech Park.

This will be the most powerful supercomputer in Japanese Europe and will assistance to leverage Bulgaria’s substantial-tech ambitions. Atos’ Czech Republic job teams have currently begun the configuration exams and the supercomputer is envisioned to get started working operationally in July 2021.

The supercomputer will assistance strengthen European scientific research and foster innovation by providing obtain to condition-of-the-art HPC infrastructure and services to a vast variety of consumers from the scientific research community, sector and the general public sector.atosnewsroom-bulgaria-Eurohpc

It will provide the growth of scientific, general public and industrial applications in a lot of fields, together with bioinformatics, pharmacy, molecular dynamics and mechanics, quantum chemistry and biochemistry, artificial intelligence, personalised drugs, bioengineering, meteorology, and the fight in opposition to weather change.

“We are amazed by the professionalism of the Atos group. The operate on the delivery and installation of the device is ahead of routine. The massive obstacle for the Consortium “Petascale Supercomputer – Bulgaria” group is setting up and generating a important connection involving the academy, the sector, the Sofia Tech Park, and the petascale laptop. In this regard, we talk with the present EuroHPC centers and have initiated conferences with the academy and sector associates. We currently have the 1st requests for fixing pragmatic tasks in chemistry, drugs, and biology. Of training course, we are also hunting forward to the upcoming – we are chatting with Atos to include their platform and working experience in quantum computers”, said Peter Statev, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board at Sofia Tech Park.

“As Europe’s foremost supercomputing maker, we are proud to be supporting researchers in sector and universities throughout Europe speed up scientific discovery and to establish alternatives for present-day troubles these as people in well being, power and agriculture. The use of artificial intelligence in research has increased the have to have for extra overall flexibility and extra flexibility in supercomputing, which is accurately what we can give with our BullSequana XH2000 so that our shoppers can advantage from the new capacities of hybrid workloads.” said Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.

The supercomputer is co-financed by the Republic of Bulgaria and EuroHPC JU with a joint expenditure totaling EUR 11.five million.

In addition to this EuroHPC tender, Atos’ BullSequana will also be made use of in 4 further EuroHPC supercomputing centres CINECA in Italy, IZUM in Slovenia, with LuxProvide in Luxembourg and in the Minho State-of-the-art Computing Centre in Portugal, therefore reinforcing Atos’ placement as a European leader in substantial-effectiveness computing.

31 Atos supercomputers are mentioned in the TOP500 around the globe supercomputer position, with a mixed peak effectiveness of 251 petaflops – this is an boost of seventy nine{ae9868201ea352e02dded42c9f03788806ac4deebecf3e725332939dc9b357ad} in petaflops from the TOP500 listing in June 2020.


Complex Technical specs

The size of the RAM reaches above three hundred TB and the number of cores is 144 384, though the laptop is built on AMD EPYC processors cooled by incredibly hot h2o and has a speedy disk storage with a capacity of two PB. The overall program is backed up in opposition to a power failure by an uninterruptible power supply with an output of 1 MW. The size of the program is 12 computing racks and two racks with auxiliary infrastructure. The entire elaborate weighs above thirty tons.
