Paris France, February 16, 2022

Atos currently unveils its new exascale-class supercomputer, the BullSequana XH3000, a hybrid computing system with unparalleled overall flexibility and effectiveness to help top experts and researchers to advance investigation in sectors these types of as temperature forecasting and weather modify, new drug discovery, genomics. Built and made in Europe at its manufacturing unit in Angers, France, this is Atos’ most successful and potent supercomputer and an vital factor in securing today’s electronic and financial sovereignty. As the undisputed European leader in supercomputing, Atos plays a vital purpose in addressing sovereignty problems, making sure that vital HPC information and abilities are fostered and continue being in Europe.

Empowering electronic and financial sovereignty

In get to take complete gain of their info while protecting their skill to safeguard it beneath any circumstance, governments, public bodies and private firms are now building sovereignty a big issue. With its BullSequana XH3000 and its experience in sovereign cloud and cybersecurity, Atos is dedicated to delivering its shoppers with the implies to exercising higher command over the information they produce and trade.

  • Exascale[1] overall performance with Accelerated Hybrid Computing today’s improve in the amount and complexity of info implies that there is an exponential want in terms of computing electricity, in purchase to deal with the new difficulties that humanity is dealing with right now this kind of as international warming and the Covid-19 pandemic. The BullSequana XH3000 will be capable to produce unprecedented computing electrical power – up to 6x raise in computing power than past variations – at any scale, up to an exascale-course system by applying Hybrid Computing superior procedures, combining CPUs, GPUs with AI or even in quantum computing hardware in common scientific simulation workflows.
  • Greener HPC – harmonizing general performance & vitality consumption – the BullSequana XH3000 is the a person of most vitality-economical supercomputers on the sector many thanks to its eco-structure and architecture, patented Direct Liquid Cooling (DLC) alternative – which will offer about 50% more cooling energy than earlier generations – and completely eco-compliant item lifecycle, from raw materials sourcing and production, to screening and transportation, and disposal/recycling.

“High-general performance computing has produced huge contributions to science, engineering and the top quality of human existence and is a cornerstone of innovation and scientific development.“ claimed Earl Joseph, CEO at Hyperion Research, HPC marketplace analyst team “As the main European HPC vendor, Atos is very well positioned to continue advancing investigation and innovation with its new supercomputer, and to convey exascale course techniques to its shoppers. With its new BullSequana XH3000 supercomputer, hybrid computing ecosystem integrating AI and quantum, and its solid roadmap for exascale, Atos demonstrates a apparent, thorough vision of the long run of scientific simulation, although getting into account the relevance of decarbonization.”

“Supercomputing performs a pivotal part in driving innovations for company, society, and the worldwide overall economy as a total and is also vital to scientific and economic sovereignty in the 21st century.” mentioned Rodolphe Belmer, CEO of Atos. “We are incredibly happy of our purpose as a leader in HPC and of our new BullSequana supercomputer, discovered currently, which results from 15 a long time of R&D efforts and brings with each other Atos’ demonstrated expertise and practical experience in significant-performance computing, AI, quantum, security and digital decarbonization. It will no question enable, as a result of the gateway of exascale, some of the crucial scientific and industrial innovation breakthroughs of the long run.”

The BullSequana XH3000 integrates the latest and most-demanding technologies, networks and interconnect and is run by the latest CPU and GPU processor and accelerator architectures from AMD, Intel, NVIDIA and in the long run the European microprocessor from SiPearl, for enhanced power capacity and increased efficiency, to give more substantial scale, more quickly and extra successful scientific simulations. Its OpenSequana architecture helps make it entirely appropriate with any long run computing blade and interconnect systems, so end users can conveniently scale up as and when required. With a stability-by-design and style approach, integrating vulnerability monitoring and menace anticipation, the BullSequana XH3000 makes sure that data is powerfully protected.

The BullSequana XH3000 is prepared to be readily available from Q4 2022.
