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

Paris France, February 16, 2022

Atos these days unveils its new exascale-class supercomputer, the BullSequana XH3000, a hybrid computing system with unparalleled overall flexibility and general performance to permit top researchers and researchers to advance study in sectors these kinds of as temperature forecasting and local climate transform, new drug discovery, genomics. Made and produced in Europe at its manufacturing unit in Angers, France, this is Atos’ most efficient and powerful supercomputer and an significant element in securing today’s electronic and economic sovereignty. As the undisputed European leader in supercomputing, Atos plays a crucial role in addressing sovereignty concerns, making certain that important HPC information and competencies are fostered and keep on being in Europe.

Empowering digital and economic sovereignty

In purchase to acquire entire benefit of their data when keeping their potential to safeguard it less than any circumstance, governments, general public bodies and non-public firms are now creating sovereignty a key problem. With its BullSequana XH3000 and its know-how in sovereign cloud and cybersecurity, Atos is fully commited to supplying its prospects with the indicates to workout greater control over the facts they develop and trade.

  • Exascale[1] overall performance with Accelerated Hybrid Computing today’s raise in the amount and complexity of knowledge means that there is an exponential will need in conditions of computing energy, in buy to deal with the new challenges that humanity is facing right now these types of as world-wide warming and the Covid-19 pandemic. The BullSequana XH3000 will be equipped to deliver unparalleled computing electric power – up to 6x improve in computing electric power than prior variations – at any scale, up to an exascale-course program by utilizing Hybrid Computing superior tactics, combining CPUs, GPUs with AI or even in quantum computing hardware in standard scientific simulation workflows.
  • Greener HPC – harmonizing overall performance & strength usage – the BullSequana XH3000 is the one of most energy-efficient supercomputers on the market thanks to its eco-design and architecture, patented Direct Liquid Cooling (DLC) remedy – which will provide more than 50% additional cooling electric power than earlier generations – and absolutely eco-compliant item lifecycle, from raw material sourcing and production, to screening and transportation, and disposal/recycling.

“High-effectiveness computing has designed enormous contributions to science, engineering and the good quality of human lifetime and is a cornerstone of innovation and scientific development.“ said Earl Joseph, CEO at Hyperion Analysis, HPC market analyst team “As the main European HPC seller, Atos is nicely positioned to carry on advancing study and innovation with its new supercomputer, and to carry exascale class devices to its clients. With its new BullSequana XH3000 supercomputer, hybrid computing ecosystem integrating AI and quantum, and its sturdy roadmap for exascale, Atos demonstrates a crystal clear, complete vision of the potential of scientific simulation, even though using into account the worth of decarbonization.”

“Supercomputing performs a pivotal role in driving improvements for business, modern society, and the world wide financial state as a whole and is also important to scientific and economic sovereignty in the 21st century.” stated Rodolphe Belmer, CEO of Atos. “We are very very pleased of our position as a chief in HPC and of our new BullSequana supercomputer, exposed nowadays, which outcomes from 15 a long time of R&D efforts and delivers alongside one another Atos’ confirmed experience and encounter in higher-overall performance computing, AI, quantum, security and electronic decarbonization. It will no question allow, by way of the gateway of exascale, some of the critical scientific and industrial innovation breakthroughs of the long term.”

The BullSequana XH3000 integrates the most up-to-date and most-demanding systems, networks and interconnect and is driven by the latest CPU and GPU processor and accelerator architectures from AMD, Intel, NVIDIA and in the end the European microprocessor from SiPearl, for improved electrical power potential and increased general performance, to offer bigger scale, speedier and far more effective scientific simulations. Its OpenSequana architecture can make it entirely appropriate with any foreseeable future computing blade and interconnect technologies, so end users can very easily scale up as and when essential. With a protection-by-design and style technique, integrating vulnerability checking and danger anticipation, the BullSequana XH3000 ensures that data is powerfully guarded.

The BullSequana XH3000 is prepared to be obtainable from Q4 2022.
