“Topaze”: a new computer at the CCRT co-designed by Atos and the CEA to meet the challenges of high-performance computing and data processing

Paris, France – June 23 2021

The CEA and its associates at the Exploration and Technological know-how Computing Middle (CCRT) have invested in a new supercomputer, named ‘Topaze’, based on the BullSequana XH2000 alternative from Atos, and mounted in the CEA’s Incredibly Massive Computing Middle (TGCC[1]) at Bruyères-le-Châtel in Essonne (south of Paris). It will be open up to the very first end users at the finish of June 2021, to get started the ‘Grand Challenges’ section, for quite big-scale simulations.

‘Topaze’ is element of Atos’ vary of HPC supercomputers, acquired following a get in touch with for tenders, and is the final result of joint R&D by Atos and the CEA’s Military services Apps Directorate (DAM). It has a peak computing ability of close to eight.eight petaflops[2].

The new personal computer involves a normal-intent partition of 864 nodes equipped with the newest AMD EPYC Milan 7763 processors, an accelerated partition of forty eight nodes based on Nvidia A100 processors and 4 quite big memory nodes. A DDN[3] storage method with a ability of roughly 3 petabytes and a bandwidth of 280 gigabytes/s completes the computation element.

atos-topazeAs associates of the CCRT, the groups from ArianeGroup, the CEA, Cerfacs, EDF, France Génomique, IFPEN, Ineris, Ingeliance, IRSN, L’Oréal, Michelin, Onera, the Safran Team, Synchrotron SOLEIL, TechnicAtome, Thales Defence Mission Methods, Thales Alenia House and Valeo will have access to the newest era of computing and information processing means needed for the success of their projects.

Significant-general performance digital simulation is an indispensable asset for innovation in several fields, these types of as studies on the progress of new plane and helicopter engines, vitality and ecological transition systems, the style and basic safety of nuclear reactors, environmental possibility evaluation, the style of new ‘flexible’ satellites, the study of proteins and the decoding of the genome, the style and manufacture of tires and integrated methods for vehicles, investigation into new materials, and the progress of more environmentally friendly cosmetics.

The CCRT’s partnership model, proven in 2003, has shown its means to answer in a sustainable way personalized to the growing requires of business. It provides a broad vary of capabilities in the subject of superior-general performance calculations and processing, combining protection, innovation and flexibility in the use of means. This model is based on numerous discussions and working sessions amongst the associates in purchase to share requires and feedback.
