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

Paris France, February 16, 2022

Atos currently unveils its new exascale-class supercomputer, the BullSequana XH3000, a hybrid computing platform with unparalleled versatility and functionality to help leading experts and scientists to progress analysis in sectors these kinds of as temperature forecasting and local weather adjust, new drug discovery, genomics. Created and manufactured in Europe at its manufacturing unit in Angers, France, this is Atos’ most efficient and highly effective supercomputer and an essential component in securing today’s digital and financial sovereignty. As the undisputed European leader in supercomputing, Atos performs a essential purpose in addressing sovereignty problems, ensuring that important HPC information and skills are fostered and continue being in Europe.

Empowering digital and economic sovereignty

In get to acquire total gain of their data though maintaining their capacity to shield it underneath any circumstance, governments, community bodies and non-public providers are now producing sovereignty a main problem. With its BullSequana XH3000 and its knowledge in sovereign cloud and cybersecurity, Atos is dedicated to providing its consumers with the indicates to work out larger control more than the data they deliver and trade.

Pushing the boundaries of technological excellence

  • Exascale[1] effectiveness with Accelerated Hybrid Computing today’s maximize in the amount and complexity of details usually means that there is an exponential need in conditions of computing ability, in purchase to deal with the new issues that humanity is dealing with right now these as worldwide warming and the Covid-19 pandemic. The BullSequana XH3000 will be able to deliver unprecedented computing electrical power – up to 6x increase in computing power than past variations – at any scale, up to an exascale-course program by applying Hybrid Computing sophisticated approaches, combining CPUs, GPUs with AI or even in quantum computing hardware in standard scientific simulation workflows.
  • Greener HPC – harmonizing performance & electricity usage – the BullSequana XH3000 is the just one of most electrical power-effective supercomputers on the market place many thanks to its eco-style and architecture, patented Immediate Liquid Cooling (DLC) remedy – which will provide over 50% a lot more cooling electric power than earlier generations – and entirely eco-compliant products lifecycle, from raw product sourcing and producing, to testing and transportation, and disposal/recycling.

“High-overall performance computing has built massive contributions to science, engineering and the high-quality of human lifetime and is a cornerstone of innovation and scientific development.“ explained Earl Joseph, CEO at Hyperion Analysis, HPC industry analyst team “As the top European HPC seller, Atos is well positioned to continue advancing investigation and innovation with its new supercomputer, and to provide exascale course units to its prospects. With its new BullSequana XH3000 supercomputer, hybrid computing ecosystem integrating AI and quantum, and its robust roadmap for exascale, Atos demonstrates a distinct, comprehensive eyesight of the upcoming of scientific simulation, though getting into account the value of decarbonization.”

“Supercomputing performs a pivotal function in driving improvements for organization, culture, and the world wide economy as a entire and is also key to scientific and economic sovereignty in the 21st century.” stated Rodolphe Belmer, CEO of Atos. “We are exceptionally very pleased of our role as a chief in HPC and of our new BullSequana supercomputer, revealed nowadays, which effects from 15 many years of R&D initiatives and provides with each other Atos’ verified skills and expertise in higher-general performance computing, AI, quantum, stability and electronic decarbonization. It will no question enable, through the gateway of exascale, some of the essential scientific and industrial innovation breakthroughs of the foreseeable future.”

The BullSequana XH3000 integrates the most up-to-date and most-demanding systems, networks and interconnect and is driven by the newest CPU and GPU processor and accelerator architectures from AMD, Intel, NVIDIA and eventually the European microprocessor from SiPearl, for improved power ability and enhanced effectiveness, to offer larger scale, faster and extra successful scientific simulations. Its OpenSequana architecture can make it fully appropriate with any long term computing blade and interconnect systems, so customers can conveniently scale up as and when wanted. With a stability-by-structure approach, integrating vulnerability checking and menace anticipation, the BullSequana XH3000 guarantees that details is powerfully guarded.

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