Atos Launches First Supercomputer Equipped with NVIDIA A100 GPU

New Atos accelerator blade enables JUWELS BullSequana system to grow to be the most effective supercomputer in Europe

Paris, France, May perhaps fourteen 2020

Atos, a global chief in digital transformation, currently announces its new BullSequana X2415, the first supercomputer in Europe to combine NVIDIA’s Ampere following-era graphics processing unit architecture, the NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Main GPU. This new supercomputer blade will supply unprecedented computing ability to increase software performance for HPC and AI workloads, tackling the difficulties of the exascale period. The BullSequana X2415 blade will maximize computing ability by extra than 2* and improve electricity use many thanks to Atos’ 100% extremely effective h2o-cooled patented DLC (Direct Liquid Cooling) remedy, which works by using heat h2o to awesome the equipment.

Forschungszentrum Jülich will combine this new blade into its booster module, extending its existing JUWELS BullSequana supercomputer, creating it the first system worldwide the use this new technologies. The JUWELS Booster will supply researchers across Europe with substantially enhanced computational means. Some of the jobs it will fuel are the European Commission’s  Human Mind Project  and the Jülich Laboratories of  “Climate Science” and “Molecular Systems”. The moment completely deployed this summer months the upgraded supercomputing system, operated under ParTec’s application ParaStation Modulo, is expected to supply a computational peak performance of extra than 70 Petaflops/s creating it the most effective supercomputer in Europe and a showcase for European exascale architecture.

“By integrating the very best technologies available, such as this most current blade from Atos which features NVIDIA’s effective A100 GPU into our supercomputer, we are equipped to increase our supercomputing ability. This is an significant milestone on our route to achieve our supreme aim of supplying exascale abilities to science and sector” mentioned Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC).

“We’re happy to be just one of the first supercomputer suppliers worldwide to include NVIDIA’s A100 GPU and to be equipped to offer you researchers worldwide the highest software performance for their HPC and AI workloads mentioned Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.  “We’re seriously energized to be operating with Jülich to increase its computing ability and to empower its JUWELS system to grow to be the most effective supercomputer in Europe.”

“Atos is just one of the top players globe-huge in the significant stop of the server sector. It is the leading European-based vendor of HPC techniques, mostly owing to the performance and ability of its BullSequana techniques, its solid technological experience and innovation and its means to effectively deal with substantial-scale jobs globally. It has doubled its presence in the TOP500 ranking in excess of the last 5 yrs and its server sector share worldwide proceeds to grow. We see Atos as just one of the key supercomputing suppliers that will probably profit in excess of the following couple of yrs as demand from customers for exascale techniques turns into extra major.” said Steve Conway, Senior Advisor at Hyperion Investigate.

The new blade characteristics an NVIDIA HGX-A100 base-board equipped with 4 NVIDIA A100 GPUs linked via third-era NVIDIA NVLink™ technologies, alongside two AMD EPYC CPUs and up to 4 NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand ports linked via a Dragonfly+ configuration. The NVIDIA Ampere architecture is a groundbreaking engineering accomplishment that provides a huge performance enhancement in excess of the prior era for AI coaching and inference. The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Main GPU characteristics the world’s biggest 7-nanometer processor, with extra than fifty four billion transistors. This crew of technologies, together with the NVIDIA sector-leading ecosystem of in excess of seven hundred GPU-accelerated HPC programs and help from NGC, will let researchers to hit the ground jogging with containerized application optimized for the growth and deployment of GPU-accelerated HPC and AI jobs.

The BullSequana X2415 will be available in Q2 of 2020.
