Atos multiplies supercomputing capacity by 12 at CESGA in Spain with new “Finisterrae III”

Santiago de Compostela (Galicia, Spain), Paris (France) July 29, 2021

Atos has been picked by the Galician Supercomputing Heart (CESGA), to structure, supply and install a new supercomputing system, named Finisterrae III, based mostly on Atos’ BullSequana X supercomputing architecture, that will multiply the current capacities of the heart by twelve, even though delivering enormous storage capability. The deal also incorporates a thirty-qubit Atos Quantum Finding out Equipment (Atos QLM30), which areas CESGA as a pioneer in Spain in quantum simulation.

CESGA will use the supercomputer for research jobs in collaboration with college and business researchers in Galicia for different strategic places of science and technological know-how such as nanotechnology, new elements and industrial procedures, health and everyday living sciences and ocean sciences. It will also market the use of HPC and Big Details in SMEs.

It will help customers to undertake new Artificial Intelligence, Equipment Finding out and Deep Finding out tactics and use these in supercomputing. It will also market Market 4. and the Industrial Digital Innovation Hub of Galicia, bringing supercomputing tactics to general public administrations and extending the use of supercomputing to other places of knowledge, such as Social Sciences and Humanities.

The basic structure theory of the Finisterrae III task is to provide a convenient, open up, efficient, adaptable, and adaptable infrastructure for unique computational paradigms. In this sense, the task will provide entry to rising technologies, specially Quantum Computing, many thanks to the Atos QLM, which will help specialists, developers, and customers to educate on the device.

“We are very pleased to provide CESGA with this new supercomputing system built with the most up-to-date technologies which is also a trusted and higher-functionality resource that contributes to the development of science and technological know-how”, mentioned Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos. “With this new deal Atos confirms its know-how in providing higher-functionality computing solutions, opening computing new horizons to the consistently demanding needs of our customers.”

The goals of CESGA are the universalization of Analysis, Advancement and Innovation (R&D&I), facilitating entry to these resources to a larger range of entities and firms, as nicely as creating a connection among places of knowledge (mainstreaming) and supporting the growing complexity of investigations.

Quantum simulation

The Atos QLM is a simulator that enables customers to create, enhance and check quantum apps. Combining an ultra-compact, higher-powered device with a universal programming language. It enables researchers and engineers to create and experiment with quantum computer software and is the world’s only quantum computer software progress and simulation apparatus. The system simulates the guidelines of physics, which are at the heart of quantum computing, to estimate the actual execution of a quantum method with double-digit precision.

Technical specs:

Finisterrae III will multiply the computing capability of the past CESGA supercomputer by twelve, delivering a computing electric power of 4 PetaFLOPS through 354 computing nodes outfitted with most up-to-date era Intel Xeon Ice Lake 8352Y processors of 32 cores at two.2GHz.

It also incorporates a whole of one hundred forty four GPU accelerators: Nvidia A100 and Nvidia T4 GPU.

With each other, the supercomputer nodes have 118 TB aggregate memory and five PB disk storage capability based mostly on NetApp technological know-how.

Storage – For neighborhood storage, nodes consist of NVMe SSD good point out drives, with an aggregate capability of 355TB and blazing-speedy data input/ output speed. The new system also has a twenty PB capability long term data storage subsystem.

Interconnect – The nodes are connected by a higher capability, very lower latency Infiniband HDR100 interconnect network.
