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

Atos and the Institute of Details Science (IZUM) in Maribor, Slovenia, now announce that the initially EuroHPC supercomputer is now operational. This is the ‘Vega’ supercomputer, based on Atos’ BullSequana XH2000 architecture, which is now put in next a start-up ceremony hosted by IZUM with the Prime Minister of the Republic of Slovenia, Janez Janša, in attendance, collectively with the Govt Vice-President of the European Fee Margrethe Vestager, the Minister of Training, Science and Activity Dr. Simona Kustec and the Govt Director of EuroHPC Joint Undertaking Anders Dam Jensen.

Vega, the largest supercomputer in the region, is based at IZUM, a public infrastructural institution and study firm proven by the Govt of the Republic of Slovenia. It will be employed to aid the progress of primary scientific, public sector and industrial purposes in numerous domains, which include customized medication, bio-engineering, climate forecasting, fight versus local climate improve and finding new resources and medication.

It will offer scientists from Slovenia and the EuroHPC community with a modern-day infrastructure providing highest functionality for computing, facts processing, substantial-functionality facts investigation (HPDA), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Understanding product progress with rapidly community connectivity to other computing centers in Slovenia and Europe.

Dr. Aleš Bošnjak, Director of IZUM: We’re delighted to announce the start-up of the initially EuroHPC supercomputer below in Slovenia. Now we can drive ahead our study and innovation assignments, in individual our HPC RIVR project layout goals, supporting Slovenian and European scientists and users from the public and business sectors, to meet up with new challenges and more contribute to the regional and European HPC initiatives.”

Named Vega, just after Slovenian mathematician Jurij Vega, the new petascale supercomputer will be co-owned and jointly operated by the EuroHPC JU (The European Higher-Effectiveness Computing Joint Undertaking). Capable of executing more than six,8 petaflops (six,8 million billion calculations for each 2nd), the technique will be amongst the world’s prime 5 supercomputers.

Agnes Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos concluded “As the primary European supercomputer producer, we are proud to be contributing to advancing study and innovation in Slovenia and in Europe. ‘Vega’, as section of the EuroHPC application and community, is section of a European worldclass supercomputing ecosystem and will assist Europe contend globally in strategic domains these as artificial intelligence, bio-engineering and the fight versus local climate improve.”

Atos was awarded a 5-yr €17.three million euro contract to source, put in and maintain the BullSequana XH2000 ‘Vega’ supercomputer.
