Atos Launches First Supercomputer Equipped with NVIDIA A100 GPU

New Atos accelerator blade enables JUWELS BullSequana method to become the most highly effective supercomputer in Europe

Paris, France, Could 14 2020

Atos, a world-wide chief in electronic transformation, these days announces its new BullSequana X2415, the to start with supercomputer in Europe to integrate NVIDIA’s Ampere next-generation graphics processing device architecture, the NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Core GPU. This new supercomputer blade will deliver unprecedented computing electrical power to raise software effectiveness for HPC and AI workloads, tackling the issues of the exascale era. The BullSequana X2415 blade will increase computing electrical power by extra than 2* and improve electricity usage many thanks to Atos’ one hundred% really efficient h2o-cooled patented DLC (Immediate Liquid Cooling) resolution, which makes use of heat h2o to interesting the device.

Forschungszentrum Jülich will integrate this new blade into its booster module, extending its current JUWELS BullSequana supercomputer, earning it the to start with method all over the world the use this new technological innovation. The JUWELS Booster will provide scientists across Europe with significantly elevated computational methods. Some of the projects it will fuel are the European Commission’s  Human Mind Project  and the Jülich Laboratories of  “Climate Science” and “Molecular Systems”. At the time fully deployed this summer months the upgraded supercomputing method, operated less than ParTec’s computer software ParaStation Modulo, is envisioned to provide a computational peak effectiveness of extra than 70 Petaflops/s earning it the most highly effective supercomputer in Europe and a showcase for European exascale architecture.

“By integrating the finest technologies readily available, which include this most recent blade from Atos which consists of NVIDIA’s highly effective A100 GPU into our supercomputer, we are capable to raise our supercomputing electrical power. This is an essential milestone on our route to attain our best goal of giving exascale capabilities to science and industry” reported Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC).

“We’re proud to be one of the to start with supercomputer manufacturers all over the world to incorporate NVIDIA’s A100 GPU and to be capable to present scientists all over the world the best software effectiveness for their HPC and AI workloads reported Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.  “We’re actually excited to be performing with Jülich to raise its computing electrical power and to allow its JUWELS method to become the most highly effective supercomputer in Europe.”

“Atos is one of the leading gamers environment-broad in the higher finish of the server industry. It is the main European-primarily based seller of HPC devices, largely owing to the effectiveness and electrical power of its BullSequana devices, its powerful technological abilities and innovation and its skill to efficiently deal with huge-scale projects globally. It has doubled its presence in the TOP500 ranking around the last 5 years and its server industry share all over the world continues to improve. We see Atos as one of the critical supercomputing manufacturers that will possible reward around the next several years as demand from customers for exascale devices becomes extra major.” said Steve Conway, Senior Advisor at Hyperion Analysis.

The new blade features an NVIDIA HGX-A100 foundation-board outfitted with four NVIDIA A100 GPUs linked by using third-generation NVIDIA NVLink™ technological innovation, alongside two AMD EPYC CPUs and up to four NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand ports linked by using a Dragonfly+ configuration. The NVIDIA Ampere architecture is a groundbreaking engineering accomplishment that delivers a enormous effectiveness improvement around the past generation for AI teaching and inference. The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU features the world’s greatest 7-nanometer processor, with extra than fifty four billion transistors. This workforce of technologies, along with the NVIDIA industry-main ecosystem of around 700 GPU-accelerated HPC applications and assist from NGC, will make it possible for scientists to hit the floor functioning with containerized computer software optimized for the growth and deployment of GPU-accelerated HPC and AI projects.

The BullSequana X2415 will be readily available in Q2 of 2020.
