Atos delivers BullSequana X410 supercomputer to Swansea University

Swansea (Wales), London (British isles), Paris (France), March 10 2021

Atos now announced that it has signed a contract with Swansea College to deploy its BullSequana X410 supercomputer, constructed on the new NVIDIA A100 Tensor Main GPU architecture and NVIDIA Mellanox HDR 200Gb/s InfiniBand networking, which will permit lecturers in Swansea and throughout Wales to generate ground-breaking study dependent on sophisticated machine finding out and deep finding out algorithms.

The largest NVIDIA A100 deployments within just Wales, this high-efficiency supercomputer kinds component of Atos’ existing romantic relationship with Supercomputing Wales – an Atos and Dell EMC supercomputing Centre of Excellence partially funded by the European Regional Growth Fund (ERDF) via the Welsh Federal government.

Component of the ‘AccelerateAI’ initiative, also funded by the European Regional Growth Fund (ERDF) via the Welsh Federal government, this GPU-accelerated supercomputer will permit study groups with concentrations in mathematics, engineering, science and medication throughout Wales to produce improvements in cutting-edge AI study and in industrial apps.

The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Main GPUs put in within just the BullSequana X410 supercomputer are highly parallel processors made to enhance computing. The integration of up to 8 GPUs within just a 2U form aspect locations this process at the forefront of today’s accelerated computing methods, in terms of compute density, efficiency and expense-efficiency. The supercomputer will also leverage NVIDIA Mellanox HDR 200Gb/s InfiniBand’s speedy data through, incredibly lower latency, and good In-Community Computing engines, enabling state-of-the-artwork efficiency for a broad assortment of HPC and AI apps that will more generate Swansea University’s study.

The AI supercomputer will be dependent at Swansea University’s vitality-effective Bay Knowledge Centre, the place Atos will manage the gear and do the job carefully with lecturers to help tackle their particular study desires.

Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos, said: “The BullSequana will supply researchers throughout Wales with state-of-the-artwork hardware to permit new scientific improvements on machine finding out and deep finding out algorithms. As the 1st significant-scale deployment of the NVIDIA A100 architecture, we imagine this is an exciting milestone for supercomputing-enabled study in Wales, supporting its ambition to be a earth leader in high-efficiency computing as component of the Supercomputing Wales undertaking.”

Professor Biagio Lucini, Director of the Swansea Academy of State-of-the-art Computing at Swansea College, said: “We are happy that the shipping and delivery of this cutting-edge, AI BullSequana X410 supercomputer will empower lecturers throughout Wales to generate ahead most likely ground-breaking discoveries. Constructing on the achievement of the Supercomputing Wales undertaking, this highly revolutionary gear will improve how AI is applied into market and made use of to remedy study troubles, while strengthening Wales’ situation as a main supercomputing hub.”

“HPC and AI have grow to be the basis on which we notice the methods to the world’s most intricate and hard troubles,“ said Rod Evans, EMEA Director for Supercomputing, Better Training and AI at NVIDIA. “That is why NVIDIA has constructed the world’s most robust and total AI supercomputing system that offers the security and efficiency necessary for HPC and AI researchers.”

Scientists from other Universities within just the Supercomputing Wales consortium – which includes Cardiff, Aberystwyth and Bangor – will have obtain to the high-efficiency process, supporting to assist the country’s ambition to compete globally for study and innovation initiatives. In collaboration with area SMEs, the undertaking will also accelerate adoption of AI procedures in Welsh market.
