Atos Launches First Supercomputer Equipped with NVIDIA A100 GPU

New Atos accelerator blade permits JUWELS BullSequana process to come to be the most strong supercomputer in Europe

Paris, France, Could 14 2020

Atos, a world wide leader in digital transformation, today announces its new BullSequana X2415, the very first supercomputer in Europe to combine NVIDIA’s Ampere next-era graphics processing unit architecture, the NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Core GPU. This new supercomputer blade will supply unparalleled computing electric power to enhance application performance for HPC and AI workloads, tackling the challenges of the exascale era. The BullSequana X2415 blade will improve computing electric power by more than two* and optimize energy usage many thanks to Atos’ a hundred% hugely efficient water-cooled patented DLC (Immediate Liquid Cooling) solution, which takes advantage of warm water to cool the device.

Forschungszentrum Jülich will combine this new blade into its booster module, extending its existing JUWELS BullSequana supercomputer, building it the very first process all over the world the use this new technology. The JUWELS Booster will deliver researchers throughout Europe with drastically improved computational sources. Some of the tasks it will fuel are the European Commission’s  Human Brain Project  and the Jülich Laboratories of  “Climate Science” and “Molecular Systems”. Once completely deployed this summer the upgraded supercomputing process, operated beneath ParTec’s software program ParaStation Modulo, is envisioned to deliver a computational peak performance of more than 70 Petaflops/s building it the most strong supercomputer in Europe and a showcase for European exascale architecture.

“By integrating the greatest technologies accessible, such as this newest blade from Atos which features NVIDIA’s strong A100 GPU into our supercomputer, we are in a position to enhance our supercomputing electric power. This is an vital milestone on our route to reach our greatest goal of supplying exascale abilities to science and field” reported Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC).

“We’re proud to be a person of the very first supercomputer companies all over the world to include things like NVIDIA’s A100 GPU and to be in a position to offer you researchers all over the world the best application performance for their HPC and AI workloads reported Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.  “We’re truly thrilled to be doing the job with Jülich to enhance its computing electric power and to permit its JUWELS process to come to be the most strong supercomputer in Europe.”

“Atos is a person of the leading gamers world-broad in the superior conclusion of the server current market. It is the leading European-primarily based seller of HPC methods, mainly due to the performance and electric power of its BullSequana methods, its potent technological abilities and innovation and its capacity to successfully handle massive-scale tasks globally. It has doubled its presence in the TOP500 ranking more than the final five years and its server current market share all over the world continues to increase. We see Atos as a person of the essential supercomputing companies that will most likely gain more than the next few years as need for exascale methods becomes more considerable.” said Steve Conway, Senior Advisor at Hyperion Study.

The new blade features an NVIDIA HGX-A100 base-board geared up with 4 NVIDIA A100 GPUs related by using third-era NVIDIA NVLink™ technology, along with two AMD EPYC CPUs and up to 4 NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand ports related by using a Dragonfly+ configuration. The NVIDIA Ampere architecture is a groundbreaking engineering achievement that delivers a massive performance advancement more than the earlier era for AI teaching and inference. The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU features the world’s most significant seven-nanometer processor, with more than fifty four billion transistors. This staff of technologies, along with the NVIDIA current market-leading ecosystem of more than seven hundred GPU-accelerated HPC applications and help from NGC, will allow for researchers to strike the floor running with containerized software program optimized for the advancement and deployment of GPU-accelerated HPC and AI tasks.

The BullSequana X2415 will be accessible in Q2 of 2020.
