This will be the most powerful supercomputer in Jap Europe and is anticipated to be operational in July 2021

Paris (France), Prague (Czech Republic), Sofia (Bulgaria) 11 May perhaps 2021

Atos currently announces that Bulgaria’s new EuroHPC supercomputer, which is primarily based on Atos’ powerful BullSequana XH2000 architecture, is now absolutely sent and assembled at Sofia Tech Park in Bulgaria. Atos was picked to establish Bulgaria’s petascale supercomputer by the European Higher Overall performance Computing Joint Enterprise (EuroHPC JU), the internet hosting entity, and the consortium “Petascale Supercomputer Bulgaria” (PetaSC-Bulgaria) whose primary husband or wife is Sofia Tech Park.

This will be the most powerful supercomputer in Jap Europe and will enable to leverage Bulgaria’s high-tech ambitions. Atos’ Czech Republic venture teams have presently started off the configuration checks and the supercomputer is anticipated to start off operating operationally in July 2021.

The supercomputer will enable improve European scientific research and foster innovation by supplying access to point out-of-the-artwork HPC infrastructure and services to a broad variety of users from the scientific research group, sector and the general public sector.atosnewsroom-bulgaria-Eurohpc

It will serve the development of scientific, general public and industrial purposes in numerous fields, such as bioinformatics, pharmacy, molecular dynamics and mechanics, quantum chemistry and biochemistry, synthetic intelligence, customized medication, bioengineering, meteorology, and the combat in opposition to weather transform.

“We are amazed by the professionalism of the Atos staff. The operate on the supply and installation of the device is ahead of timetable. The massive obstacle for the Consortium “Petascale Supercomputer – Bulgaria” staff is creating and producing a worthwhile link involving the academy, the sector, the Sofia Tech Park, and the petascale pc. In this regard, we talk with the present EuroHPC centers and have initiated conferences with the academy and sector reps. We presently have the 1st requests for resolving pragmatic jobs in chemistry, medication, and biology. Of class, we are also wanting forward to the future – we are speaking with Atos to include their system and knowledge in quantum desktops”, reported Peter Statev, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board at Sofia Tech Park.

“As Europe’s primary supercomputing manufacturer, we are happy to be supporting researchers in sector and universities throughout Europe accelerate scientific discovery and to build answers for existing issues such as people in wellbeing, electrical power and agriculture. The use of synthetic intelligence in research has greater the want for much more adaptability and much more versatility in supercomputing, which is particularly what we can present with our BullSequana XH2000 so that our prospects can profit from the new capacities of hybrid workloads.” reported 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 financial investment totaling EUR 11.five million.

In addition to this EuroHPC tender, Atos’ BullSequana will also be made use of in 4 added EuroHPC supercomputing centres CINECA in Italy, IZUM in Slovenia, with LuxProvide in Luxembourg and in the Minho State-of-the-art Computing Centre in Portugal, thus reinforcing Atos’ position as a European chief in high-efficiency computing.

31 Atos supercomputers are outlined in the TOP500 around the globe supercomputer ranking, with a blended peak efficiency of 251 petaflops – this is an increase of 79% in petaflops from the TOP500 listing in June 2020.


Technological Requirements

The sizing of the RAM reaches above 300 TB and the quantity of cores is a hundred and forty four 384, even though the pc is designed on AMD EPYC processors cooled by very hot h2o and has a fast disk storage with a ability of 2 PB. The complete method is backed up in opposition to a power failure by an uninterruptible power source with an output of 1 MW. The sizing of the method is twelve computing racks and 2 racks with auxiliary infrastructure. The total sophisticated weighs above 30 tons.
