Today Atos announced a contract to supply a BullSequana X supercomputer to the Institute of Interdisciplinary Physics and Complex Systems (IFISC) in Spain. The new computational cluster will be used for Big Data analysis and intensive digital simulations and substantially enhance the institute’s research capacity, enabling it to face new challenges.

We are very proud to provide IFISC with this supercomputer designed with the latest technologies and to offer a reliable and high performance tool for Big Data analysis and intensive numerical simulations.” says José Camacho, Director of HPC & Quantum computing at Atos in Iberia, “This contract reinforces the Atos’ expertise and experience in delivering high-performance computing solutions, opening new horizons of computing to the new and demanding needs of our customers.”

The supercomputer’s architecture is based on Atos’ BullSequana X430A5 servers, with AMD EPYC Rome latest generation processors.

The excellent performance of the equipment supplied by Atos will put IFISC in a unique positioning in order to address its new strategic challenges in Big Data analysis,” said Maxi San Miguel, Director of IFISC.

Atos was selected from 11 candidates who took part in the European public tender for the significantly superior performance of its offer compared to other proposals. The delivery and installation of the new equipment is scheduled for December 2019.

  1. Another win for EPYC. AMD’s crushing it in HPC, and moving up in cloud, both of which have decision makers who want the best tech/TCO. Enterprise is another matter, however, w/ much lower standards.
