Atos Launches First Supercomputer Equipped with NVIDIA A100 GPU

New Atos accelerator blade enables JUWELS BullSequana process to grow to be the most strong supercomputer in Europe

Paris, France, May 14 2020

Atos, a world wide leader in electronic transformation, right now announces its new BullSequana X2415, the initially supercomputer in Europe to combine NVIDIA’s Ampere upcoming-era graphics processing device architecture, the NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Main GPU. This new supercomputer blade will deliver unprecedented computing electrical power to boost software efficiency for HPC and AI workloads, tackling the worries of the exascale era. The BullSequana X2415 blade will increase computing electrical power by additional than two* and improve power intake thanks to Atos’ a hundred{79e59ee6e2f5cf570628ed7ac4055bef3419265de010b59461d891d43fac5627} hugely productive drinking water-cooled patented DLC (Immediate Liquid Cooling) option, which employs heat drinking water to awesome the device.

Forschungszentrum Jülich will combine this new blade into its booster module, extending its current JUWELS BullSequana supercomputer, producing it the initially process worldwide the use this new know-how. The JUWELS Booster will present researchers throughout Europe with drastically improved computational resources. Some of the initiatives it will gas are the European Commission’s  Human Mind Project  and the Jülich Laboratories of  “Climate Science” and “Molecular Systems”. After absolutely deployed this summer the upgraded supercomputing process, operated below ParTec’s application ParaStation Modulo, is expected to present a computational peak efficiency of additional than 70 Petaflops/s producing it the most strong supercomputer in Europe and a showcase for European exascale architecture.

“By integrating the most effective systems out there, like this hottest blade from Atos which consists of NVIDIA’s strong A100 GPU into our supercomputer, we are able to boost our supercomputing electrical power. This is an crucial milestone on our path to reach our final goal of supplying exascale capabilities to science and sector” reported Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC).

“We’re very pleased to be 1 of the initially supercomputer companies worldwide to include things like NVIDIA’s A100 GPU and to be able to present researchers worldwide the greatest software efficiency for their HPC and AI workloads reported Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.  “We’re actually excited to be operating with Jülich to boost its computing electrical power and to empower its JUWELS process to grow to be the most strong supercomputer in Europe.”

“Atos is 1 of the best players world-wide in the high conclusion of the server market place. It is the primary European-centered vendor of HPC techniques, largely owing to the efficiency and electrical power of its BullSequana techniques, its potent technological know-how and innovation and its capacity to successfully handle huge-scale initiatives globally. It has doubled its existence in the TOP500 ranking around the last five several years and its server market place share worldwide proceeds to expand. We see Atos as 1 of the key supercomputing companies that will most likely profit around the upcoming several several years as demand from customers for exascale techniques becomes additional major.” said Steve Conway, Senior Advisor at Hyperion Research.

The new blade options an NVIDIA HGX-A100 foundation-board equipped with four NVIDIA A100 GPUs related by using third-era NVIDIA NVLink™ know-how, alongside two AMD EPYC CPUs and up to four NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand ports related by using a Dragonfly+ configuration. The NVIDIA Ampere architecture is a groundbreaking engineering achievement that delivers a significant efficiency advancement around the former era for AI coaching and inference. The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Main GPU options the world’s greatest seven-nanometer processor, with additional than fifty four billion transistors. This workforce of systems, along with the NVIDIA market place-primary ecosystem of around 700 GPU-accelerated HPC applications and help from NGC, will allow researchers to hit the floor managing with containerized application optimized for the advancement and deployment of GPU-accelerated HPC and AI initiatives.

The BullSequana X2415 will be out there in Q2 of 2020.
