Paris (France), Prague (Czech Republic), Sofia (Bulgaria) 11 May possibly 2021

Atos currently announces that Bulgaria’s new EuroHPC supercomputer, which is primarily based on Atos’ impressive BullSequana XH2000 architecture, is now thoroughly sent and assembled at Sofia Tech Park in Bulgaria. Atos was selected to develop Bulgaria’s petascale supercomputer by the European Higher Performance Computing Joint Endeavor (EuroHPC JU), the internet hosting entity, and the consortium “Petascale Supercomputer Bulgaria” (PetaSC-Bulgaria) whose foremost partner is Sofia Tech Park.

This will be the most impressive supercomputer in Jap Europe and will support to leverage Bulgaria’s superior-tech ambitions. Atos’ Czech Republic task teams have previously begun the configuration exams and the supercomputer is predicted to begin functioning operationally in July 2021.

The supercomputer will support enhance European scientific exploration and foster innovation by providing access to state-of-the-art HPC infrastructure and solutions to a large array of customers from the scientific exploration group, business and the public sector.atosnewsroom-bulgaria-Eurohpc

It will provide the growth of scientific, public and industrial applications in many fields, together with bioinformatics, pharmacy, molecular dynamics and mechanics, quantum chemistry and biochemistry, synthetic intelligence, personalized medication, bioengineering, meteorology, and the combat from local climate change.

“We are impressed by the professionalism of the Atos workforce. The function on the shipping and installation of the machine is ahead of program. The significant challenge for the Consortium “Petascale Supercomputer – Bulgaria” workforce is creating and creating a important relationship concerning the academy, the business, the Sofia Tech Park, and the petascale laptop or computer. In this regard, we converse with the present EuroHPC centers and have initiated meetings with the academy and business reps. We previously have the to start with requests for fixing pragmatic jobs in chemistry, medication, and biology. Of training course, we are also wanting ahead to the long run – we are talking with Atos to increase their system and working experience in quantum desktops”, said Peter Statev, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board at Sofia Tech Park.

“As Europe’s foremost supercomputing manufacturer, we are proud to be supporting scientists in business and universities throughout Europe speed up scientific discovery and to build answers for latest worries this kind of as individuals in well being, energy and agriculture.
