This will be the most strong supercomputer in Eastern Europe and is predicted to be operational in July 2021

Paris (France), Prague (Czech Republic), Sofia (Bulgaria) eleven May perhaps 2021

Atos nowadays announces that Bulgaria’s new EuroHPC supercomputer, which is dependent on Atos’ strong BullSequana XH2000 architecture, is now absolutely sent and assembled at Sofia Tech Park in Bulgaria. Atos was picked to construct Bulgaria’s petascale supercomputer by the European Significant Efficiency Computing Joint Endeavor (EuroHPC JU), the internet hosting entity, and the consortium “Petascale Supercomputer Bulgaria” (PetaSC-Bulgaria) whose top husband or wife is Sofia Tech Park.

This will be the most strong supercomputer in Eastern Europe and will help to leverage Bulgaria’s significant-tech ambitions. Atos’ Czech Republic challenge teams have now commenced the configuration assessments and the supercomputer is predicted to start functioning operationally in July 2021.

The supercomputer will help enhance European scientific exploration and foster innovation by offering accessibility to condition-of-the-art HPC infrastructure and products and services to a vast assortment of consumers from the scientific exploration neighborhood, market and the community sector.atosnewsroom-bulgaria-Eurohpc

It will serve the improvement of scientific, community and industrial programs in quite a few fields, which includes bioinformatics, pharmacy, molecular dynamics and mechanics, quantum chemistry and biochemistry, artificial intelligence, personalized medicine, bioengineering, meteorology, and the struggle in opposition to local weather adjust.

“We are amazed by the professionalism of the Atos crew. The perform on the shipping and set up of the device is forward of program. The massive challenge for the Consortium “Petascale Supercomputer – Bulgaria” crew is creating and building a precious link concerning the academy, the market, the Sofia Tech Park, and the petascale laptop. In this regard, we communicate with the current EuroHPC centers and have initiated conferences with the academy and market representatives. We now have the initially requests for fixing pragmatic responsibilities in chemistry, medicine, and biology. Of training course, we are also wanting ahead to the long term – we are speaking with Atos to include their system and encounter in quantum computer systems”, said Peter Statev, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board at Sofia Tech Park.

“As Europe’s top supercomputing producer, we are proud to be supporting scientists in market and universities across Europe speed up scientific discovery and to build alternatives for present troubles these as all those in health, energy and agriculture. The use of artificial intelligence in exploration has greater the need for additional overall flexibility and additional flexibility in supercomputing, which is accurately what we can provide with our BullSequana XH2000 so that our consumers can reward from the new capacities of hybrid workloads.” said Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.

The supercomputer is co-financed by the Republic of Bulgaria and EuroHPC JU with a joint expense totaling EUR eleven.5 million.

In addition to this EuroHPC tender, Atos’ BullSequana will also be utilized in 4 additional EuroHPC supercomputing centres CINECA in Italy, IZUM in Slovenia, with LuxProvide in Luxembourg and in the Minho Highly developed Computing Centre in Portugal, therefore reinforcing Atos’ position as a European leader in significant-effectiveness computing.

31 Atos supercomputers are shown in the TOP500 around the globe supercomputer ranking, with a put together peak effectiveness of 251 petaflops – this is an raise of 79% in petaflops from the TOP500 listing in June 2020.


Complex Technical specs

The measurement of the RAM reaches above 300 TB and the range of cores is a hundred and forty four 384, although the laptop is designed on AMD EPYC processors cooled by incredibly hot drinking water and has a rapid disk storage with a capacity of 2 PB. The full program is backed up in opposition to a electrical power failure by an uninterruptible electrical power source with an output of one MW. The measurement of the program is twelve computing racks and 2 racks with auxiliary infrastructure. The full intricate weighs above 30 tons.
