Atos Launches First Supercomputer Equipped with NVIDIA A100 GPU

New Atos accelerator blade allows JUWELS BullSequana method to become the most effective supercomputer in Europe

Paris, France, Could fourteen 2020

Atos, a world wide chief in digital transformation, now announces its new BullSequana X2415, the very first supercomputer in Europe to combine NVIDIA’s Ampere following-technology graphics processing unit architecture, the NVIDIA® A100 Tensor Core GPU. This new supercomputer blade will deliver unparalleled computing ability to strengthen software effectiveness for HPC and AI workloads, tackling the troubles of the exascale era. The BullSequana X2415 blade will enhance computing ability by a lot more than 2* and enhance electricity consumption thanks to Atos’ a hundred% remarkably productive h2o-cooled patented DLC (Direct Liquid Cooling) answer, which utilizes warm h2o to great the equipment.

Forschungszentrum Jülich will combine this new blade into its booster module, extending its present JUWELS BullSequana supercomputer, building it the very first method around the globe the use this new technological innovation. The JUWELS Booster will offer researchers throughout Europe with substantially elevated computational assets. Some of the assignments it will gasoline are the European Commission’s  Human Brain Project  and the Jülich Laboratories of  “Climate Science” and “Molecular Systems”. At the time entirely deployed this summertime the upgraded supercomputing method, operated below ParTec’s software program ParaStation Modulo, is envisioned to offer a computational peak effectiveness of a lot more than 70 Petaflops/s building it the most effective supercomputer in Europe and a showcase for European exascale architecture.

“By integrating the very best technologies accessible, including this latest blade from Atos which consists of NVIDIA’s effective A100 GPU into our supercomputer, we are equipped to strengthen our supercomputing ability. This is an critical milestone on our route to reach our final aim of offering exascale abilities to science and industry” said Prof. Thomas Lippert, Director of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC).

“We’re very pleased to be one particular of the very first supercomputer suppliers around the globe to consist of NVIDIA’s A100 GPU and to be equipped to offer researchers around the globe the greatest software effectiveness for their HPC and AI workloads said Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.  “We’re genuinely enthusiastic to be performing with Jülich to strengthen its computing ability and to help its JUWELS method to become the most effective supercomputer in Europe.”

“Atos is one particular of the leading players world-extensive in the substantial stop of the server market place. It is the main European-based mostly seller of HPC methods, largely because of to the effectiveness and ability of its BullSequana methods, its powerful technological skills and innovation and its means to effectively regulate substantial-scale assignments globally. It has doubled its presence in the TOP500 position in excess of the final 5 years and its server market place share around the globe proceeds to grow. We see Atos as one particular of the critical supercomputing suppliers that will probable gain in excess of the following handful of years as demand for exascale methods gets a lot more significant.” said Steve Conway, Senior Advisor at Hyperion Study.

The new blade attributes an NVIDIA HGX-A100 foundation-board geared up with 4 NVIDIA A100 GPUs related by using 3rd-technology NVIDIA NVLink™ technological innovation, together with two AMD EPYC CPUs and up to 4 NVIDIA Mellanox InfiniBand ports related by using a Dragonfly+ configuration. The NVIDIA Ampere architecture is a groundbreaking engineering achievement that delivers a significant effectiveness improvement in excess of the past technology for AI schooling and inference. The NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPU attributes the world’s biggest 7-nanometer processor, with a lot more than fifty four billion transistors. This staff of technologies, along with the NVIDIA market place-main ecosystem of in excess of seven hundred GPU-accelerated HPC purposes and assistance from NGC, will make it possible for researchers to hit the ground jogging with containerized software program optimized for the improvement and deployment of GPU-accelerated HPC and AI assignments.

The BullSequana X2415 will be accessible in Q2 of 2020.
