Atos Launches First Supercomputer Equipped with NVIDIA A100 GPU

New Atos accelerator blade enables JUWELS BullSequana method to turn out to be the most impressive supercomputer in Europe

Paris, France, May possibly 14 2020

Atos, a worldwide chief in digital transformation, currently announces its new BullSequana X2415, the 1st supercomputer in Europe to integrate NVIDIA’s Ampere future-era graphics processing device architecture, the NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Core GPU. This new supercomputer blade will produce unprecedented computing electrical power to increase application effectiveness for HPC and AI workloads, tackling the problems of the exascale era. The BullSequana X2415 blade will raise computing electrical power by much more than 2* and enhance electrical power intake many thanks to Atos’ a hundred% highly efficient drinking water-cooled patented DLC (Immediate Liquid Cooling) alternative, which utilizes heat drinking water to great the machine.

Forschungszentrum Jülich will integrate this new blade into its booster module, extending its existing JUWELS BullSequana supercomputer, earning it the 1st method around the world the use this new technologies. The JUWELS Booster will deliver scientists across Europe with considerably greater computational sources. Some of the tasks it will gasoline are the European Commission’s  Human Mind Project  and the Jülich Laboratories of  “Climate Science” and “Molecular Systems”. After thoroughly deployed this summer the upgraded supercomputing method, operated beneath ParTec’s software program ParaStation Modulo, is envisioned to deliver a computational peak effectiveness of much more than 70 Petaflops/s earning it the most impressive supercomputer in Europe and a showcase for European exascale architecture.

“By integrating the most effective technologies offered, such as this hottest blade from Atos which involves NVIDIA’s impressive A100 GPU into our supercomputer, we are ready to increase our supercomputing electrical power. This is an vital milestone on our route to arrive at our top objective of offering exascale capabilities to science and sector” reported Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC).

“We’re proud to be one of the 1st supercomputer suppliers around the world to include things like NVIDIA’s A100 GPU and to be ready to offer scientists around the world the greatest application effectiveness for their HPC and AI workloads reported Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.  “We’re really psyched to be functioning with Jülich to increase its computing electrical power and to permit its JUWELS method to turn out to be the most impressive supercomputer in Europe.”

“Atos is one of the top rated players world-large in the superior close of the server industry. It is the leading European-primarily based vendor of HPC devices, mainly thanks to the effectiveness and electrical power of its BullSequana devices, its powerful technological expertise and innovation and its potential to effectively regulate massive-scale tasks globally. It has doubled its existence in the TOP500 position more than the previous 5 a long time and its server industry share around the world proceeds to expand. We see Atos as one of the vital supercomputing suppliers that will most likely benefit more than the future handful of a long time as demand for exascale devices gets much more significant.” said Steve Conway, Senior Advisor at Hyperion Research.

The new blade attributes an NVIDIA HGX-A100 foundation-board equipped with four NVIDIA A100 GPUs linked by means of third-era NVIDIA NVLink™ technologies, together with two AMD EPYC CPUs and up to four NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand ports linked by means of a Dragonfly+ configuration. The NVIDIA Ampere architecture is a groundbreaking engineering accomplishment that provides a significant effectiveness enhancement more than the prior era for AI teaching and inference. The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU attributes the world’s premier seven-nanometer processor, with much more than fifty four billion transistors. This crew of technologies, alongside with the NVIDIA industry-leading ecosystem of more than seven-hundred GPU-accelerated HPC programs and assist from NGC, will make it possible for scientists to strike the ground functioning with containerized software program optimized for the progress and deployment of GPU-accelerated HPC and AI tasks.

The BullSequana X2415 will be offered in Q2 of 2020.
