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

Paris France, February 16, 2022

Atos today unveils its new exascale-course supercomputer, the BullSequana XH3000, a hybrid computing platform with unparalleled adaptability and overall performance to allow leading experts and scientists to progress exploration in sectors these as weather forecasting and climate modify, new drug discovery, genomics. Made and made in Europe at its factory in Angers, France, this is Atos’ most successful and effective supercomputer and an significant aspect in securing today’s digital and economic sovereignty. As the undisputed European chief in supercomputing, Atos plays a vital job in addressing sovereignty concerns, ensuring that vital HPC know-how and competencies are fostered and continue to be in Europe.

Empowering electronic and economic sovereignty

In order to take full gain of their information while maintaining their capability to safeguard it beneath any circumstance, governments, general public bodies and non-public providers are now producing sovereignty a main concern. With its BullSequana XH3000 and its expertise in sovereign cloud and cybersecurity, Atos is fully commited to furnishing its consumers with the indicates to exercising larger command in excess of the details they produce and trade.

  • Exascale[1] effectiveness with Accelerated Hybrid Computing today’s improve in the quantity and complexity of information indicates that there is an exponential want in conditions of computing electrical power, in get to deal with the new worries that humanity is experiencing nowadays this sort of as world wide warming and the Covid-19 pandemic. The BullSequana XH3000 will be ready to deliver unparalleled computing electrical power – up to 6x boost in computing electricity than previous variations – at any scale, up to an exascale-class system by applying Hybrid Computing advanced techniques, combining CPUs, GPUs with AI or even in quantum computing hardware in traditional scientific simulation workflows.
  • Greener HPC – harmonizing general performance & strength use – the BullSequana XH3000 is the one of most power-effective supercomputers on the current market thanks to its eco-style and architecture, patented Direct Liquid Cooling (DLC) alternative – which will deliver more than 50% extra cooling ability than preceding generations – and totally eco-compliant product or service lifecycle, from uncooked materials sourcing and manufacturing, to testing and transportation, and disposal/recycling.

“High-overall performance computing has produced great contributions to science, engineering and the top quality of human daily life and is a cornerstone of innovation and scientific progress.“ claimed Earl Joseph, CEO at Hyperion Investigate, HPC field analyst team “As the top European HPC seller, Atos is perfectly positioned to keep on advancing investigate and innovation with its new supercomputer, and to provide exascale class programs to its customers. With its new BullSequana XH3000 supercomputer, hybrid computing ecosystem integrating AI and quantum, and its robust roadmap for exascale, Atos demonstrates a very clear, comprehensive vision of the long run of scientific simulation, even though having into account the value of decarbonization.”

“Supercomputing performs a pivotal position in driving innovations for enterprise, society, and the world economic system as a whole and is also essential to scientific and financial sovereignty in the 21st century.” said Rodolphe Belmer, CEO of Atos. “We are very very pleased of our role as a chief in HPC and of our new BullSequana supercomputer, unveiled today, which success from 15 yrs of R&D endeavours and provides jointly Atos’ proven know-how and practical experience in high-performance computing, AI, quantum, stability and electronic decarbonization. It will no question permit, as a result of the gateway of exascale, some of the critical scientific and industrial innovation breakthroughs of the future.”

The BullSequana XH3000 integrates the most current and most-demanding technologies, networks and interconnect and is run by the most up-to-date CPU and GPU processor and accelerator architectures from AMD, Intel, NVIDIA and eventually the European microprocessor from SiPearl, for enhanced power capacity and improved effectiveness, to offer larger sized scale, more rapidly and extra efficient scientific simulations. Its OpenSequana architecture tends to make it thoroughly compatible with any future computing blade and interconnect systems, so users can very easily scale up as and when desired. With a stability-by-layout tactic, integrating vulnerability checking and risk anticipation, the BullSequana XH3000 ensures that info is powerfully protected.

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