Bull unveiled its exascale program at SC14. The main objective of the program is to design and develop the next generation of supercomputers in Europe and contribute to producing world-class solutions for research and industry. With one of the largest teams dedicated to High-Performance Computing (HPC), Bull is experiencing a paradigm shift that gives it the critical mass to address vertical market sectors around the world.

With the unveiling of its exascale program, Bull has reaffirmed its capacity for innovation and its ability to design the world’s most powerful supercomputers. Bull meets the needs of performance and reliability that our customers require to handle the massive amounts of data generated in the digital world and to help solve major societal and environmental challenges that are arising in our societies,” said Philippe Vannier, Bull’s CEO.

The Bull exascale program aims to address technologies and processes to meet the requirements of High-Performance Computing (HPC) and Big Data: i.e. the rapid computation and analysis of massive data sets. Initially it involves five main elements:

  • An open exascale supercomputer, code-named SEQUANA
  • The matching software stack, known as bullx supercomputer suite
  • A new generation of fast interconnect, code-named BXI
  • A range of servers with ultra-high memory capacity, known as the bullx S6000 series
  • A complete set of services to optimize customer applications and make the most of exascale.
