Atos unveils new exascale-class BullSequana supercomputer, for digital and economic sovereignty

Paris France, February 16, 2022

Atos these days unveils its new exascale-class supercomputer, the BullSequana XH3000, a hybrid computing system with unparalleled overall flexibility and efficiency to help major scientists and researchers to progress exploration in sectors this kind of as weather forecasting and local weather modify, new drug discovery, genomics. Designed and manufactured in Europe at its manufacturing facility in Angers, France, this is Atos’ most effective and effective supercomputer and an crucial factor in securing today’s electronic and economic sovereignty. As the undisputed European chief in supercomputing, Atos plays a key role in addressing sovereignty difficulties, ensuring that crucial HPC information and skills are fostered and continue to be in Europe.

Empowering digital and economic sovereignty

In purchase to choose complete edge of their info when retaining their potential to defend it under any circumstance, governments, general public bodies and private organizations are now earning sovereignty a key problem. With its BullSequana XH3000 and its expertise in sovereign cloud and cybersecurity, Atos is fully commited to supplying its shoppers with the indicates to training higher regulate more than the information they generate and trade.

  • Exascale[1] performance with Accelerated Hybrid Computing today’s raise in the quantity and complexity of knowledge signifies that there is an exponential will need in conditions of computing electric power, in order to deal with the new difficulties that humanity is dealing with currently such as world wide warming and the Covid-19 pandemic. The BullSequana XH3000 will be ready to deliver unprecedented computing electricity – up to 6x raise in computing ability than preceding variations – at any scale, up to an exascale-course technique by utilizing Hybrid Computing advanced tactics, combining CPUs, GPUs with AI or even in quantum computing components in classic scientific simulation workflows.
  • Greener HPC – harmonizing effectiveness & energy usage – the BullSequana XH3000 is the 1 of most energy-economical supercomputers on the current market thanks to its eco-design and style and architecture, patented Direct Liquid Cooling (DLC) alternative – which will offer about 50% a lot more cooling ability than earlier generations – and fully eco-compliant products lifecycle, from raw materials sourcing and manufacturing, to testing and transportation, and disposal/recycling.

“High-performance computing has designed monumental contributions to science, engineering and the excellent of human everyday living and is a cornerstone of innovation and scientific progress.“ explained Earl Joseph, CEO at Hyperion Analysis, HPC market analyst team “As the primary European HPC seller, Atos is perfectly positioned to continue advancing research and innovation with its new supercomputer, and to deliver exascale class systems to its shoppers. With its new BullSequana XH3000 supercomputer, hybrid computing ecosystem integrating AI and quantum, and its powerful roadmap for exascale, Atos demonstrates a apparent, complete vision of the future of scientific simulation, while using into account the great importance of decarbonization.”

“Supercomputing plays a pivotal function in driving innovations for enterprise, society, and the international economic climate as a whole and is also essential to scientific and financial sovereignty in the 21st century.” said Rodolphe Belmer, CEO of Atos. “We are exceptionally very pleased of our purpose as a chief in HPC and of our new BullSequana supercomputer, uncovered these days, which outcomes from 15 decades of R&D efforts and delivers jointly Atos’ verified skills and encounter in large-functionality computing, AI, quantum, safety and digital decarbonization. It will no question allow, by way of the gateway of exascale, some of the important scientific and industrial innovation breakthroughs of the future.”

The BullSequana XH3000 integrates the newest and most-demanding systems, networks and interconnect and is powered by the hottest CPU and GPU processor and accelerator architectures from AMD, Intel, NVIDIA and ultimately the European microprocessor from SiPearl, for improved electricity potential and improved functionality, to present larger scale, a lot quicker and additional successful scientific simulations. Its OpenSequana architecture helps make it absolutely appropriate with any long term computing blade and interconnect systems, so users can quickly scale up as and when required. With a protection-by-design and style strategy, integrating vulnerability monitoring and menace anticipation, the BullSequana XH3000 assures that information is powerfully safeguarded.

The BullSequana XH3000 is planned to be out there from Q4 2022.
