Atos Launches First Supercomputer Equipped with NVIDIA A100 GPU

New Atos accelerator blade allows JUWELS BullSequana system to come to be the most impressive supercomputer in Europe

Paris, France, May 14 2020

Atos, a world wide leader in digital transformation, today announces its new BullSequana X2415, the 1st supercomputer in Europe to combine NVIDIA’s Ampere upcoming-generation graphics processing unit architecture, the NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Main GPU. This new supercomputer blade will deliver unprecedented computing energy to enhance application general performance for HPC and AI workloads, tackling the challenges of the exascale period. The BullSequana X2415 blade will maximize computing energy by extra than two* and improve vitality use thanks to Atos’ 100% extremely economical drinking water-cooled patented DLC (Immediate Liquid Cooling) remedy, which uses warm drinking water to neat the equipment.

Forschungszentrum Jülich will combine this new blade into its booster module, extending its current JUWELS BullSequana supercomputer, creating it the 1st system throughout the world the use this new technological know-how. The JUWELS Booster will offer scientists across Europe with considerably amplified computational methods. Some of the initiatives it will gasoline are the European Commission’s  Human Mind Project  and the Jülich Laboratories of  “Climate Science” and “Molecular Systems”. Once totally deployed this summertime the upgraded supercomputing system, operated below ParTec’s software program ParaStation Modulo, is predicted to offer a computational peak general performance of extra than 70 Petaflops/s creating it the most impressive supercomputer in Europe and a showcase for European exascale architecture.

“By integrating the very best systems offered, which includes this most recent blade from Atos which features NVIDIA’s impressive A100 GPU into our supercomputer, we are ready to enhance our supercomputing energy. This is an crucial milestone on our path to attain our greatest goal of providing exascale capabilities to science and industry” mentioned Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC).

“We’re proud to be just one of the 1st supercomputer brands throughout the world to involve NVIDIA’s A100 GPU and to be ready to present scientists throughout the world the highest application general performance for their HPC and AI workloads mentioned Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.  “We’re seriously psyched to be working with Jülich to enhance its computing energy and to permit its JUWELS system to come to be the most impressive supercomputer in Europe.”

“Atos is just one of the best players entire world-large in the large end of the server sector. It is the foremost European-based mostly seller of HPC techniques, mainly due to the general performance and energy of its BullSequana techniques, its strong technological expertise and innovation and its potential to successfully regulate substantial-scale initiatives globally. It has doubled its existence in the TOP500 ranking more than the past 5 years and its server sector share throughout the world continues to develop. We see Atos as just one of the crucial supercomputing brands that will probably benefit more than the upcoming several years as need for exascale techniques results in being extra major.” said Steve Conway, Senior Advisor at Hyperion Investigation.

The new blade features an NVIDIA HGX-A100 base-board geared up with 4 NVIDIA A100 GPUs related by way of 3rd-generation NVIDIA NVLink™ technological know-how, along with two AMD EPYC CPUs and up to 4 NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand ports related by way of a Dragonfly+ configuration. The NVIDIA Ampere architecture is a groundbreaking engineering achievement that provides a huge general performance advancement more than the former generation for AI coaching and inference. The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Main GPU features the world’s greatest 7-nanometer processor, with extra than 54 billion transistors. This workforce of systems, alongside with the NVIDIA sector-foremost ecosystem of more than seven hundred GPU-accelerated HPC apps and guidance from NGC, will allow scientists to strike the ground jogging with containerized software program optimized for the improvement and deployment of GPU-accelerated HPC and AI initiatives.

The BullSequana X2415 will be offered in Q2 of 2020.
