Atos Launches First Supercomputer Equipped with NVIDIA A100 GPU

New Atos accelerator blade enables JUWELS BullSequana system to turn into the most effective supercomputer in Europe

Paris, France, May fourteen 2020

Atos, a global chief in electronic transformation, nowadays announces its new BullSequana X2415, the very first supercomputer in Europe to integrate NVIDIA’s Ampere following-generation graphics processing device architecture, the NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Main GPU. This new supercomputer blade will deliver unparalleled computing power to increase application general performance for HPC and AI workloads, tackling the worries of the exascale era. The BullSequana X2415 blade will raise computing power by extra than 2* and optimize energy use many thanks to Atos’ one hundred% remarkably successful water-cooled patented DLC (Direct Liquid Cooling) alternative, which works by using warm water to awesome the machine.

Forschungszentrum Jülich will integrate this new blade into its booster module, extending its existing JUWELS BullSequana supercomputer, creating it the very first system all over the world the use this new technological know-how. The JUWELS Booster will supply scientists across Europe with noticeably greater computational assets. Some of the initiatives it will fuel are the European Commission’s  Human Brain Project  and the Jülich Laboratories of  “Climate Science” and “Molecular Systems”. The moment totally deployed this summer months the upgraded supercomputing system, operated beneath ParTec’s software ParaStation Modulo, is predicted to supply a computational peak general performance of extra than 70 Petaflops/s creating it the most effective supercomputer in Europe and a showcase for European exascale architecture.

“By integrating the ideal systems out there, which include this latest blade from Atos which contains NVIDIA’s effective A100 GPU into our supercomputer, we are able to increase our supercomputing power. This is an crucial milestone on our route to achieve our supreme goal of providing exascale abilities to science and sector” explained Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC).

“We’re happy to be one of the very first supercomputer suppliers all over the world to consist of NVIDIA’s A100 GPU and to be able to give scientists all over the world the maximum application general performance for their HPC and AI workloads explained Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.  “We’re definitely excited to be functioning with Jülich to increase its computing power and to empower its JUWELS system to turn into the most effective supercomputer in Europe.”

“Atos is one of the leading players world-broad in the higher stop of the server market place. It is the foremost European-centered vendor of HPC systems, mostly due to the general performance and power of its BullSequana systems, its powerful technological experience and innovation and its capacity to successfully take care of huge-scale initiatives globally. It has doubled its presence in the TOP500 rating about the last five a long time and its server market place share all over the world continues to develop. We see Atos as one of the important supercomputing suppliers that will probably profit about the following couple a long time as need for exascale systems becomes extra significant.” said Steve Conway, Senior Advisor at Hyperion Study.

The new blade options an NVIDIA HGX-A100 base-board outfitted with four NVIDIA A100 GPUs connected by way of third-generation NVIDIA NVLink™ technological know-how, alongside two AMD EPYC CPUs and up to four NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand ports connected by way of a Dragonfly+ configuration. The NVIDIA Ampere architecture is a groundbreaking engineering achievement that delivers a substantial general performance advancement about the previous generation for AI training and inference. The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Main GPU options the world’s major 7-nanometer processor, with extra than 54 billion transistors. This staff of systems, alongside with the NVIDIA market place-foremost ecosystem of about seven hundred GPU-accelerated HPC apps and aid from NGC, will enable scientists to strike the floor working with containerized software optimized for the development and deployment of GPU-accelerated HPC and AI initiatives.

The BullSequana X2415 will be out there in Q2 of 2020.
