Paris (France), Prague (Czech Republic), Sofia (Bulgaria) 11 May well 2021
Atos right now announces that Bulgaria’s new EuroHPC supercomputer, which is based mostly on Atos’ impressive BullSequana XH2000 architecture, is now absolutely sent and assembled at Sofia Tech Park in Bulgaria. Atos was chosen to develop Bulgaria’s petascale supercomputer by the European High Efficiency Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU), the hosting entity, and the consortium “Petascale Supercomputer Bulgaria” (PetaSC-Bulgaria) whose leading associate is Sofia Tech Park.
This will be the most impressive supercomputer in Japanese Europe and will help to leverage Bulgaria’s significant-tech ambitions. Atos’ Czech Republic venture teams have presently started off the configuration exams and the supercomputer is predicted to start doing the job operationally in July 2021.
The supercomputer will help make improvements to European scientific exploration and foster innovation by offering accessibility to state-of-the-art HPC infrastructure and products and services to a broad range of customers from the scientific exploration community, industry and the general public sector.
It will provide the advancement of scientific, general public and industrial purposes in quite a few fields, including bioinformatics, pharmacy, molecular dynamics and mechanics, quantum chemistry and biochemistry, artificial intelligence, customized medicine, bioengineering, meteorology, and the fight in opposition to weather change.
“We are amazed by the professionalism of the Atos group. The operate on the delivery and installation of the equipment is ahead of schedule. The big challenge for the Consortium “Petascale Supercomputer – Bulgaria” group is making and generating a important relationship involving the academy, the industry, the Sofia Tech Park, and the petascale personal computer. In this regard, we connect with the existing EuroHPC facilities and have initiated meetings with the academy and industry reps. We presently have the initial requests for fixing pragmatic duties in chemistry, medicine, and biology. Of system, we are also looking ahead to the long run – we are chatting with Atos to insert their platform and expertise in quantum computer systems”, claimed Peter Statev, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board at Sofia Tech Park.
“As Europe’s leading supercomputing manufacturer, we are proud to be supporting scientists in industry and universities throughout Europe accelerate scientific discovery and to produce answers for latest problems this kind of as individuals in well being, power and agriculture.

The supercomputer is co-financed by the Republic of Bulgaria and EuroHPC JU with a joint investment totaling EUR 11.five million.
In addition to this EuroHPC tender, Atos’ BullSequana will also be used in four further 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’ place as a European chief in significant-general performance computing.
31 Atos supercomputers are outlined in the TOP500 globally supercomputer rating, with a merged peak general performance of 251 petaflops – this is an enhance of 79% in petaflops from the TOP500 listing in June 2020.
The sizing of the RAM reaches about 300 TB and the number of cores is one hundred forty four 384, when the personal computer is created on AMD EPYC processors cooled by hot water and has a quickly disk storage with a capability of 2 PB. The total process is backed up in opposition to a power failure by an uninterruptible power source with an output of one MW. The sizing of the process is twelve computing racks and 2 racks with auxiliary infrastructure. The total advanced weighs about 30 tons.
