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.”

Atos Adds AMD processors to BullSequana X Line of Supercomputers

Last week at SC18, Atos announced support for AMD EPYC processors in its upcoming BullSequana X range of supercomputers. The next generation AMD EPYC processor (codenamed Rome) is expected to be available in Atos’ new BullSequana XH2000 liquid cooled supercomputer in 2019.

Atos Launches Open Edge and HPC Initiative for the coming 5G World

Today Atos announced a joint effort with E4, the Jülich Supecomputing Centre, Fraunhofer FOKUS, Huawei, Mellanox, and SUSE to help shorten time-to-market for HPC and Edge deployments. “Collaborative and grassroots initiatives focused on solving real world problems are the hallmark of a vibrant ecosystem,” said Jean-Marc Denis, Head of Strategy, BigData and Security at Atos. “Addressing the challenge of supporting one trillion connected devices requires today’s infrastructure to evolve. Only the Arm ecosystem has the flexibility, scalability, and technical breadth to bring best-in-class solutions to market in areas as diverse as edge and high-performance compute.”

1 Petaflop ROMEO Supercomputer Comes to Reims from Atos

Today the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne dedicated their new ROMEO supercomputer. A BullSequana X1000 model from Atos, ROMEO is ranked amongst the most-powerful supercomputers worldwide. “This installation confirms the strategic engagement of the Atos Group in R&D in scientific computing. The BullSequana supercomputer brings a level of power that is needed by the digital simulation projects of the University and it also offers the necessary functionalities for the convergence of Artificial Intelligence and scientific computing, which the URCA requested.”

Atos Announces New Quantum Simulator with 41 Qubits

Today Atos announced the latest version of its Atos Quantum Learning Machine, the “first commercially available and ready-to-use quantum system,” capable of simulating up to 41 quantum bits (Qubits). “It also incorporates world-firsts in terms of simulating ‘quantum noise’ in order to make the simulation even more realistic. These advances – combined with our work to develop a quantum accelerator within five years – place Atos and its customers in an ideal position to take advantage of future digital revolutions.”

Mousquetaire-Group Announces European Exascale Initiative

In this video from ISC 2018, founding members of the Mousquetaire-Group announce their plans to develop an innovative supercomputer architecture based around modular computing. To be partially funded by the European Commission, the Mousquetaires will build the machine solely with European technologies, including the processor.

Atos Powers Tera 1000 Supercomputer

Today Atos announced that the company has successfully deployed Tera 1000, the most powerful European general-purpose supercomputer with a computing power of 25 petaflops and a very competitive power consumption of only 4 megawatts. “This spot in the top-500 ranking reflects the successful collaboration between Atos and the CEA, and is one of the best examples of Atos’ technological excellence in high-performance computing.”

Atos and Dell EMC Centre of Excellence coming to Supercomputing Wales

Today Atos announced a new contract with Supercomputing Wales, the national supercomputing research facility for Wales that will result in a world-first Atos and Dell EMC supercomputing Centre of Excellence. This partnership will provide high performance computing facilities and big data research capabilities to a consortium of universities in Wales including Cardiff, Swansea, Aberystwyth and Bangor Universities. “We are thrilled to be part of such an important partnership to help continue the great work already being carried out by universities across Wales,” said Richard Rawcliffe, Vice President, UK Public Sector, Dell EMC.

Atos Quantum Learning Machine Comes to SURFsara in the Netherlands

Dutch researchers have a new opportunity to experiment with Quantum Computing with the new Atos Quantum Learning Machine at SURFsara. The Atos Quantum Learning Machine is a complete on-premise quantum simulation environment designed for quantum software developers to generate quantum algorithms. It is dedicated to the development of quantum software, training and experimentation. The Atos Quantum Learning Machine allows researchers, engineers and students to develop and experiment with quantum software.
