Video: Atos Olympe Supercomputer Powers Research at CALMIP

Today Atos announced the deployment of a BullSequana X1000 supercomputer at CALMIP, one of the biggest multi-scale inter-university supercomputing centers in France. Called Olympe, the supercomputer will be used for over 200 research projects in materials, fluid mechanics, universe sciences and chemistry. “The supercomputer has a peak performance of 1,3 petaflop/s bringing 5 times more computing and processing power than that of the previous supercomputer, for the same energy consumption.”

Custom Atos Supercomputer to Speed Genome Analysis at CNAG-CRG in Barcelona

Atos will soon deploy a Bull supercomputer at the Centro Nacional de Análisis Genómico (CNAG-CRG) in Barcelona for large-scale DNA sequencing and analysis. To support the vast process and calculation demands needed for this analysis, CNAG-CRG worked with Atos to build this custom-made analytics platform, which helps drive new insights ten times faster than its previous HPC system. “Atos helped us to set up a robust platform to conduct in-depth high-performance data analytics on genome sequences, which is the perfect complement to our outstanding sequencing platform”, stated Ivo Gut, CNAG-CRG Director.

200 Gigabit HDR InfiniBand to Power New Atos Supercomputers at CSC in Finland

Last week in Finland, Mellanox announced that its 200 Gigabit HDR InfiniBand solutions were selected to accelerate a multi-phase supercomputer system at CSC – the Finnish IT Center for Science. The new supercomputers, set to be deployed in 2019 and 2020 by Atos, will serve the Finnish researchers in universities and research institutes, enhancing climate, renewable energy, astrophysics, nanomaterials and bioscience, among a wide range of exploration activities. The Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) will have their own separate partition for diverse simulation tasks ranging from ocean fluxes to atmospheric modeling and space physics.

Choice Comes to HPC: A Year in Processor Development

In this special guest feature, Robert Roe from Scientific Computing World writes that a whole new set of processor choices could shake up high performance computing. “While Intel is undoubtedly the king of the hill when it comes to HPC processors – with more than 90 per cent of the Top500 using Intel-based technologies – the advances made by other companies, such as AMD, the re-introduction of IBM and the maturing Arm ecosystem are all factors that mean that Intel faces stiffer competition than it has for a decade.”

Atos to build BullSquana Supercomputer in Czech Republic

Atos has announced plans to build a BullSequana XH2000 for IT4Innovations in the Czech Republic. The new supercomputer will be located in the National Supercomputing Center IT4Innovations, which is part of the Technical University of Ostrava and will be 8 times more powerful than its predecessor Anselm, which was installed in 2013.

Atos to Build Bull Supercomputer for C-DAC in India

Today Atos announced a HPC announced plans to deploy a large-scale supercomputer at C-DAC in India. This contract is part of the NSM (National Supercomputing Mission), a 7-year plan of INR 4500 crores (~650M$) led by the Government of India which aims to create a network of over 70 high-performance supercomputing facilities for various academic and research institutions across India. “We’re delighted to officially become today the technology partner of C-DAC for HPC-related platforms and to participate in India’s prestigious NSM (National Supercomputing Mission) program. We are honored that our BullSequana supercomputers, will be empowering Indian academic and R&D institutions across the country to accelerate their research and at the same time support India’s ambition to be a leader in HPC.”
