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

Atos has been selected by the Galician Supercomputing Center (CESGA), to structure, provide and install a new supercomputing process, named Finisterrae III, based mostly on Atos’ BullSequana X supercomputing architecture, that will multiply the latest capacities of the heart by twelve, though giving massive storage capacity. The deal also includes a thirty-qubit Atos Quantum Studying Equipment (Atos QLM30), which areas CESGA as a pioneer in Spain in quantum simulation.

CESGA will use the supercomputer for investigate tasks in collaboration with college and market scientists in Galicia for many strategic spots of science and technological know-how this sort of as nanotechnology, new components and industrial processes, overall health and daily life sciences and ocean sciences. It will also encourage the use of HPC and Massive Information in SMEs.

It will allow people to undertake new Artificial Intelligence, Equipment Studying and Deep Studying methods and use these in supercomputing. It will also encourage Business four. and the Industrial Electronic Innovation Hub of Galicia, bringing supercomputing methods to general public administrations and extending the use of supercomputing to other spots of expertise, this sort of as Social Sciences and Humanities.

The simple structure basic principle of the Finisterrae III project is to offer a handy, open, efficient, adaptable, and adaptable infrastructure for various computational paradigms. In this feeling, the project will offer access to rising systems, primarily Quantum Computing, thanks to the Atos QLM, which will allow specialists, builders, and people to practice on the device.

“We are happy to offer CESGA with this new supercomputing process created with the newest systems which is also a trusted and superior-overall performance tool that contributes to the progression of science and technological know-how”, claimed Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos. “With this new deal Atos confirms its abilities in providing superior-overall performance computing methods, opening computing new horizons to the continuously demanding desires of our shoppers.”

The goals of CESGA are the universalization of Exploration, Progress and Innovation (R&D&I), facilitating access to these sources to a greater range of entities and organizations, as very well as making a website link between spots of expertise (mainstreaming) and supporting the rising complexity of investigations.

Quantum simulation

The Atos QLM is a simulator that enables people to develop, optimize and check quantum programs. Combining an extremely-compact, superior-run device with a universal programming language. It enables scientists and engineers to develop and experiment with quantum program and is the world’s only quantum program improvement and simulation apparatus. The process simulates the legal guidelines of physics, which are at the heart of quantum computing, to compute the correct execution of a quantum system with double-digit precision.

###

Complex specs:

Finisterrae III will multiply the computing capacity of the preceding CESGA supercomputer by twelve, giving a computing power of four PetaFLOPS as a result of 354 computing nodes equipped with newest era Intel Xeon Ice Lake 8352Y processors of 32 cores at 2.2GHz.

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

Collectively, the supercomputer nodes have 118 TB aggregate memory and five PB disk storage capacity based mostly on NetApp technological know-how.

Storage – For nearby storage, nodes incorporate NVMe SSD reliable state drives, with an aggregate capacity of 355TB and blazing-speedy information enter/ output velocity. The new process also has a 20 PB capacity long-lasting information storage subsystem.

Interconnect – The nodes are connected by a superior capacity, extremely low latency Infiniband HDR100 interconnect network.
