Atos Launches First Supercomputer Equipped with NVIDIA A100 GPU

New Atos accelerator blade allows JUWELS BullSequana method to turn out to be the most highly effective supercomputer in Europe

Paris, France, Could 14 2020

Atos, a world wide leader in digital transformation, now announces its new BullSequana X2415, the very first supercomputer in Europe to combine NVIDIA’s Ampere following-generation graphics processing device architecture, the NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Main GPU. This new supercomputer blade will produce unprecedented computing energy to strengthen application general performance for HPC and AI workloads, tackling the difficulties of the exascale period. The BullSequana X2415 blade will boost computing energy by a lot more than two* and improve power use thanks to Atos’ 100% remarkably economical water-cooled patented DLC (Direct Liquid Cooling) remedy, which works by using warm water to neat the device.

Forschungszentrum Jülich will combine this new blade into its booster module, extending its current JUWELS BullSequana supercomputer, making it the very first method worldwide the use this new technology. The JUWELS Booster will supply researchers across Europe with appreciably increased computational means. Some of the tasks it will fuel are the European Commission’s  Human Brain Project  and the Jülich Laboratories of  “Climate Science” and “Molecular Systems”. At the time thoroughly deployed this summer season the upgraded supercomputing method, operated under ParTec’s program ParaStation Modulo, is predicted to supply a computational peak general performance of a lot more than 70 Petaflops/s making it the most highly effective supercomputer in Europe and a showcase for European exascale architecture.

“By integrating the very best systems obtainable, which includes this hottest blade from Atos which consists of NVIDIA’s highly effective A100 GPU into our supercomputer, we are equipped to strengthen our supercomputing energy. This is an critical milestone on our route to attain our top aim of providing exascale capabilities to science and business” stated Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC).

“We’re very pleased to be 1 of the very first supercomputer manufacturers worldwide to involve NVIDIA’s A100 GPU and to be equipped to offer you researchers worldwide the optimum application general performance for their HPC and AI workloads stated Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.  “We’re seriously energized to be doing work with Jülich to strengthen its computing energy and to permit its JUWELS method to turn out to be the most highly effective supercomputer in Europe.”

“Atos is 1 of the best gamers globe-broad in the high end of the server market. It is the primary European-based mostly seller of HPC systems, largely thanks to the general performance and energy of its BullSequana systems, its solid technological abilities and innovation and its potential to proficiently take care of substantial-scale tasks globally. It has doubled its presence in the TOP500 ranking over the last five a long time and its server market share worldwide proceeds to improve. We see Atos as 1 of the key supercomputing manufacturers that will very likely reward over the following handful of a long time as desire for exascale systems gets to be a lot more considerable.” said Steve Conway, Senior Advisor at Hyperion Exploration.

The new blade characteristics an NVIDIA HGX-A100 foundation-board geared up with 4 NVIDIA A100 GPUs connected by way of 3rd-generation NVIDIA NVLink™ technology, together with two AMD EPYC CPUs and up to 4 NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand ports connected by way of a Dragonfly+ configuration. The NVIDIA Ampere architecture is a groundbreaking engineering accomplishment that provides a large general performance enhancement over the preceding generation for AI instruction and inference. The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Main GPU characteristics the world’s greatest seven-nanometer processor, with a lot more than fifty four billion transistors. This group of systems, along with the NVIDIA market-primary ecosystem of over 700 GPU-accelerated HPC applications and guidance from NGC, will make it possible for researchers to strike the floor jogging with containerized program optimized for the growth and deployment of GPU-accelerated HPC and AI tasks.

The BullSequana X2415 will be obtainable in Q2 of 2020.
