Atos unveils new exascale-class BullSequana supercomputer, for digital and economic sovereignty

Paris France, February 16, 2022

Atos today unveils its new exascale-class supercomputer, the BullSequana XH3000, a hybrid computing system with unparalleled overall flexibility and efficiency to allow major scientists and researchers to advance study in sectors these as weather conditions forecasting and climate improve, new drug discovery, genomics. Intended and created in Europe at its factory in Angers, France, this is Atos’ most economical and powerful supercomputer and an essential factor in securing today’s digital and economic sovereignty. As the undisputed European chief in supercomputing, Atos performs a crucial function in addressing sovereignty difficulties, ensuring that critical HPC awareness and abilities are fostered and remain in Europe.

Empowering electronic and financial sovereignty

In buy to consider entire advantage of their information even though keeping their capability to safeguard it underneath any circumstance, governments, community bodies and personal corporations are now making sovereignty a big concern. With its BullSequana XH3000 and its experience in sovereign cloud and cybersecurity, Atos is committed to furnishing its customers with the signifies to exercising increased manage around the details they develop and exchange.

Pushing the boundaries of complex excellence

  • Exascale[1] general performance with Accelerated Hybrid Computing today’s increase in the quantity and complexity of facts indicates that there is an exponential have to have in terms of computing electrical power, in buy to deal with the new worries that humanity is struggling with currently this sort of as global warming and the Covid-19 pandemic. The BullSequana XH3000 will be capable to provide unparalleled computing energy – up to 6x improve in computing energy than preceding versions – at any scale, up to an exascale-class method by applying Hybrid Computing state-of-the-art approaches, combining CPUs, GPUs with AI or even in quantum computing hardware in conventional scientific simulation workflows.
  • Greener HPC – harmonizing performance & strength use – the BullSequana XH3000 is the a person of most power-efficient supercomputers on the market many thanks to its eco-structure and architecture, patented Immediate Liquid Cooling (DLC) alternative – which will present about 50% far more cooling power than prior generations – and absolutely eco-compliant product or service lifecycle, from uncooked substance sourcing and manufacturing, to screening and transportation, and disposal/recycling.

“High-efficiency computing has built tremendous contributions to science, engineering and the good quality of human daily life and is a cornerstone of innovation and scientific progress.“ stated Earl Joseph, CEO at Hyperion Analysis, HPC marketplace analyst group “As the main European HPC vendor, Atos is properly positioned to carry on advancing study and innovation with its new supercomputer, and to convey exascale class techniques to its clients. With its new BullSequana XH3000 supercomputer, hybrid computing ecosystem integrating AI and quantum, and its potent roadmap for exascale, Atos demonstrates a clear, in depth vision of the potential of scientific simulation, although taking into account the importance of decarbonization.”

“Supercomputing plays a pivotal function in driving improvements for organization, society, and the world wide economic system as a total and is also critical to scientific and financial sovereignty in the 21st century.” stated Rodolphe Belmer, CEO of Atos. “We are incredibly very pleased of our position as a leader in HPC and of our new BullSequana supercomputer, uncovered nowadays, which final results from 15 many years of R&D endeavours and delivers with each other Atos’ confirmed knowledge and experience in high-performance computing, AI, quantum, protection and digital decarbonization. It will no question allow, as a result of the gateway of exascale, some of the vital scientific and industrial innovation breakthroughs of the long run.”

The BullSequana XH3000 integrates the most current and most-demanding systems, networks and interconnect and is driven by the most up-to-date CPU and GPU processor and accelerator architectures from AMD, Intel, NVIDIA and in the end the European microprocessor from SiPearl, for improved electricity capacity and improved efficiency, to deliver greater scale, more rapidly and extra successful scientific simulations. Its OpenSequana architecture can make it fully appropriate with any potential computing blade and interconnect systems, so buyers can effortlessly scale up as and when needed. With a security-by-design and style strategy, integrating vulnerability checking and threat anticipation, the BullSequana XH3000 makes sure that facts is powerfully secured.

The BullSequana XH3000 is prepared to be readily available from Q4 2022.
