New Atos accelerator blade enables JUWELS BullSequana method to become the most powerful supercomputer in Europe

Paris, France, May fourteen 2020

Atos, a world wide chief in electronic transformation, today announces its new BullSequana X2415, the initially supercomputer in Europe to integrate NVIDIA’s Ampere future-technology graphics processing unit architecture, the NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Core GPU. This new supercomputer blade will supply unprecedented computing electricity to improve software performance for HPC and AI workloads, tackling the difficulties of the exascale era. The BullSequana X2415 blade will improve computing electricity by additional than 2* and optimize power usage many thanks to Atos’ 100% really productive h2o-cooled patented DLC (Immediate Liquid Cooling) answer, which uses warm h2o to cool the device.

Forschungszentrum Julich Ralf-Uwe Limbach

Forschungszentrum Jülich will integrate this new blade into its booster module, extending its existing JUWELS BullSequana supercomputer, generating it the initially method all over the world the use this new technological know-how. The JUWELS Booster will deliver scientists across Europe with substantially amplified computational resources. Some of the tasks it will fuel are the European Commission’s  Human Brain Project  and the Jülich Laboratories of  “Climate Science” and “Molecular Systems”. The moment absolutely deployed this summertime the upgraded supercomputing method, operated less than ParTec’s software program ParaStation Modulo, is anticipated to deliver a computational peak performance of additional than 70 Petaflops/s generating it the most powerful supercomputer in Europe and a showcase for European exascale architecture.

“By integrating the most effective systems accessible, which include this most current blade from Atos which features NVIDIA’s powerful A100 GPU into our supercomputer, we are ready to improve our supercomputing electricity. This is an significant milestone on our route to access our ultimate objective of providing exascale abilities to science and sector” claimed Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC).

“We’re happy to be just one of the initially supercomputer manufacturers all over the world to include NVIDIA’s A100 GPU and to be ready to present scientists all over the world the greatest software performance for their HPC and AI workloads claimed Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.  “We’re genuinely enthusiastic to be doing the job with Jülich to improve its computing electricity and to help its JUWELS method to become the most powerful supercomputer in Europe.”

“Atos is just one of the major gamers earth-extensive in the substantial stop of the server industry. It is the primary European-based mostly seller of HPC devices, largely thanks to the performance and electricity of its BullSequana devices, its strong technological abilities and innovation and its skill to proficiently handle big-scale tasks globally. It has doubled its presence in the TOP500 position in excess of the last 5 years and its server industry share all over the world carries on to increase. We see Atos as just one of the key supercomputing manufacturers that will possible benefit in excess of the future several years as demand for exascale devices will become additional significant.” said Steve Conway, Senior Advisor at Hyperion Investigate.

The new blade capabilities an NVIDIA HGX-A100 base-board outfitted with four NVIDIA A100 GPUs related by way of third-technology NVIDIA NVLink™ technological know-how, along with two AMD EPYC CPUs and up to four NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand ports related by way of a Dragonfly+ configuration. The NVIDIA Ampere architecture is a groundbreaking engineering achievement that delivers a enormous performance enhancement in excess of the earlier technology for AI instruction and inference. The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU capabilities the world’s largest 7-nanometer processor, with additional than 54 billion transistors. This team of systems, along with the NVIDIA industry-primary ecosystem of in excess of 700 GPU-accelerated HPC purposes and help from NGC, will allow for scientists to strike the floor operating with containerized software program optimized for the development and deployment of GPU-accelerated HPC and AI tasks.

The BullSequana X2415 will be accessible in Q2 of 2020.
