Paris — June 29, 2021 — Atos today announces that 10 new supercomputers, based on its BullSequana X high-performance infrastructure, are in the TOP500 global supercomputing ranking. This makes a total of 36 Atos supercomputers listed, with a combined peak performance of 206 petaflops – an increase of 27 percent in petaflops from the last TOP500 listing announced in November 2020.

Looking back over these last six months Atos has seen a flurry of HPC successes, in particular:

  • EuroHPC  – its BullSequana will be used in five EuroHPC supercomputing centres – Sofia Tech Park at Bulgaria (“Discover”), CINECA in Italy (“Da Vinci”), IZUM in Slovenia, (“Vega”) LuxProvide in Luxembourg (“MeluXina” which is also #4 in the GREEN500) and in the Minho Advanced Computing Centre in Portugal, reinforcing Atos’ position as a European leader in high-performance computing.
  • The Linkoping University’s ‘Berzelius’ supercomputer for AI will use Atos’ recently announced Atos ThinkAI solution to enable its researchers speed-up processing times on their complex data, empowering them to gain insights faster, using the power of deep learning and analytics.
  • Topaze” at the CCRT – a new supercomputer at the French CCRT based on the BullSequana XH2000 solution from Atos, is the result of joint R&D by Atos and the CEA’s Military Applications Directorate (DAM). It will soon be open to the first users, to start the ‘Grand Challenges’ phase, for very large-scale simulations.
  • “Noctua2” at Paderborn University – the recently announced “Noctua2” supercomputer at the University of Paderborn, based on Atos” BullSequana XH2000, will give the University  the modern, highly available and flexible supercomputer infrastructure that is needed for excellent science and research.

Also announced: University of EdinburghSwansea University, Spanish State Meteorological Agency AEMET and JUWELS at Juelich Supercomputing Center, which is the fastest supercomputing system in Europe with a sustained peak performance of 44.1 HPL petaflops, and ranks #7 on the GREEN500.
