Atos Launches First Supercomputer Equipped with NVIDIA A100 GPU

New Atos accelerator blade allows JUWELS BullSequana system to grow to be the most powerful supercomputer in Europe

Paris, France, May possibly 14 2020

Atos, a worldwide chief in digital transformation, today announces its new BullSequana X2415, the 1st supercomputer in Europe to integrate NVIDIA’s Ampere subsequent-generation graphics processing device architecture, the NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Main GPU. This new supercomputer blade will deliver unparalleled computing electrical power to strengthen software efficiency for HPC and AI workloads, tackling the troubles of the exascale era. The BullSequana X2415 blade will improve computing electrical power by a lot more than 2* and enhance vitality consumption many thanks to Atos’ one hundred% extremely successful drinking water-cooled patented DLC (Direct Liquid Cooling) alternative, which takes advantage of heat drinking water to amazing the machine.

Forschungszentrum Jülich will integrate this new blade into its booster module, extending its current JUWELS BullSequana supercomputer, building it the 1st system throughout the world the use this new engineering. The JUWELS Booster will give scientists throughout Europe with substantially amplified computational assets. Some of the assignments it will fuel are the European Commission’s  Human Mind Project  and the Jülich Laboratories of  “Climate Science” and “Molecular Systems”. The moment totally deployed this summer time the upgraded supercomputing system, operated underneath ParTec’s computer software ParaStation Modulo, is anticipated to give a computational peak efficiency of a lot more than 70 Petaflops/s building it the most powerful supercomputer in Europe and a showcase for European exascale architecture.

“By integrating the very best systems available, which include this latest blade from Atos which contains NVIDIA’s powerful A100 GPU into our supercomputer, we are in a position to strengthen our supercomputing electrical power. This is an significant milestone on our route to get to our greatest aim of furnishing exascale capabilities to science and market” said Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC).

“We’re happy to be one particular of the 1st supercomputer brands throughout the world to involve NVIDIA’s A100 GPU and to be in a position to offer scientists throughout the world the optimum software efficiency for their HPC and AI workloads said Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.  “We’re seriously fired up to be performing with Jülich to strengthen its computing electrical power and to empower its JUWELS system to grow to be the most powerful supercomputer in Europe.”

“Atos is one particular of the prime gamers entire world-broad in the large finish of the server current market. It is the foremost European-centered vendor of HPC devices, mostly owing to the efficiency and electrical power of its BullSequana devices, its solid technological abilities and innovation and its capability to properly control big-scale assignments globally. It has doubled its presence in the TOP500 rating about the last 5 several years and its server current market share throughout the world carries on to grow. We see Atos as one particular of the essential supercomputing brands that will most likely gain about the subsequent few several years as demand for exascale devices gets a lot more major.” said Steve Conway, Senior Advisor at Hyperion Analysis.

The new blade functions an NVIDIA HGX-A100 base-board outfitted with four NVIDIA A100 GPUs connected by way of 3rd-generation NVIDIA NVLink™ engineering, along with 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 accomplishment that delivers a enormous efficiency advancement about the preceding generation for AI schooling and inference. The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Main GPU functions the world’s most significant 7-nanometer processor, with a lot more than 54 billion transistors. This workforce of systems, alongside with the NVIDIA current market-foremost ecosystem of about 700 GPU-accelerated HPC programs and guidance from NGC, will make it possible for scientists to strike the floor managing with containerized computer software optimized for the development and deployment of GPU-accelerated HPC and AI assignments.

The BullSequana X2415 will be available in Q2 of 2020.
