Atos’s supercomputer to pave the way for Bulgaria’s leading position in high-tech

This will be the most impressive supercomputer in Jap Europe and is predicted to be operational in July 2021

Paris (France), Prague (Czech Republic), Sofia (Bulgaria) 11 May well 2021

Atos nowadays announces that Bulgaria’s new EuroHPC supercomputer, which is based on Atos’ impressive BullSequana XH2000 architecture, is now thoroughly delivered and assembled at Sofia Tech Park in Bulgaria. Atos was chosen to develop Bulgaria’s petascale supercomputer by the European Superior Effectiveness Computing Joint Endeavor (EuroHPC JU), the web hosting entity, and the consortium “Petascale Supercomputer Bulgaria” (PetaSC-Bulgaria) whose major partner is Sofia Tech Park.

This will be the most impressive supercomputer in Jap Europe and will enable to leverage Bulgaria’s high-tech ambitions. Atos’ Czech Republic task teams have already started out the configuration exams and the supercomputer is predicted to start out doing the job operationally in July 2021.

The supercomputer will enable increase European scientific investigate and foster innovation by giving access to condition-of-the-artwork HPC infrastructure and products and services to a extensive array of buyers from the scientific investigate neighborhood, sector and the public sector.

It will serve the improvement of scientific, public and industrial apps in lots of fields, such as bioinformatics, pharmacy, molecular dynamics and mechanics, quantum chemistry and biochemistry, artificial intelligence, customized medicine, bioengineering, meteorology, and the fight from climate transform.

“We are impressed by the professionalism of the Atos crew. The function on the supply and installation of the equipment is forward of plan. The huge challenge for the Consortium “Petascale Supercomputer – Bulgaria” crew is setting up and generating a valuable link amongst the academy, the sector, the Sofia Tech Park, and the petascale computer. In this regard, we connect with the existing EuroHPC centers and have initiated conferences with the academy and sector representatives. We already have the very first requests for fixing pragmatic jobs in chemistry, medicine, and biology. Of course, we are also searching ahead to the future – we are speaking with Atos to add their platform and knowledge in quantum personal computers”, claimed Peter Statev, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board at Sofia Tech Park.

“As Europe’s major supercomputing producer, we are proud to be supporting scientists in sector and universities across Europe speed up scientific discovery and to produce methods for recent troubles such as people in well being, electricity and agriculture. The use of artificial intelligence in investigate has enhanced the have to have for extra overall flexibility and extra versatility in supercomputing, which is exactly what we can deliver with our BullSequana XH2000 so that our clients can gain from the new capacities of hybrid workloads.” claimed Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.

The supercomputer is co-financed by the Republic of Bulgaria and EuroHPC JU with a joint financial commitment totaling EUR 11.five million.

In addition to this EuroHPC tender, Atos’ BullSequana will also be made use of in four added EuroHPC supercomputing centres CINECA in Italy, IZUM in Slovenia, with LuxProvide in Luxembourg and in the Minho State-of-the-art Computing Centre in Portugal, therefore reinforcing Atos’ placement as a European chief in high-efficiency computing.

31 Atos supercomputers are stated in the TOP500 around the globe supercomputer rating, with a put together peak efficiency of 251 petaflops – this is an raise of seventy nine% in petaflops from the TOP500 listing in June 2020.
