Based on Atos’ BullSequana XH2000, the ‘Vega’ supercomputer was inaugurated at the Institute of Facts Science (IZUM) in Slovenia

Maribor (Slovenia), Paris (France) April 21, 2021

Atos and the Institute of Facts Science (IZUM) in Maribor, Slovenia, currently announce that the 1st EuroHPC supercomputer is now operational. This is the ‘Vega’ supercomputer, dependent on Atos’ BullSequana XH2000 architecture, which is now mounted next a start out-up ceremony hosted by IZUM with the Key Minister of the Republic of Slovenia, Janez Janša, in attendance, jointly with the Government Vice-President of the European Fee Margrethe Vestager, the Minister of Training, Science and Activity Dr. Simona Kustec and the Government Director of EuroHPC Joint Undertaking Anders Dam Jensen.
