Atos right now announces that Bulgaria’s new EuroHPC supercomputer, which is based on Atos’ strong BullSequana XH2000 architecture, is now fully sent and assembled at Sofia Tech Park in Bulgaria. Atos was selected to construct Bulgaria’s petascale supercomputer by the European High Performance Computing Joint Enterprise (EuroHPC JU), the web hosting entity, and the consortium “Petascale Supercomputer Bulgaria” (PetaSC-Bulgaria) whose primary associate is Sofia Tech Park.

This will be the most strong supercomputer in Jap Europe and will support to leverage Bulgaria’s substantial-tech ambitions. Atos’ Czech Republic job teams have already started off the configuration assessments and the supercomputer is envisioned to start out doing the job operationally in July 2021.

The supercomputer will support strengthen European scientific study and foster innovation by delivering accessibility to state-of-the-art HPC infrastructure and services to a wide variety of customers from the scientific study neighborhood, market and the community sector.

It will provide the enhancement of scientific, community and industrial purposes in a lot of fields, like bioinformatics, pharmacy, molecular dynamics and mechanics, quantum chemistry and biochemistry, synthetic intelligence, personalised medicine, bioengineering, meteorology, and the fight versus local climate modify.

“We are amazed by the professionalism of the Atos team. The function on the shipping and delivery and installation of the machine is ahead of agenda. The big problem for the Consortium “Petascale Supercomputer – Bulgaria” team is making and generating a useful connection concerning the academy, the market, the Sofia Tech Park, and the petascale pc. In this regard, we talk with the present EuroHPC facilities and have initiated meetings with the academy and market reps. We already have the to start with requests for solving pragmatic tasks in chemistry, medicine, and biology. Of course, we are also searching forward to the upcoming – we are talking with Atos to increase their system and practical experience in quantum desktops”, claimed Peter Statev, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board at Sofia Tech Park.

“As Europe’s primary supercomputing manufacturer, we are happy to be supporting scientists in market and universities throughout Europe speed up scientific discovery and to produce answers for existing issues these kinds of as these in wellbeing, strength and agriculture. The use of synthetic intelligence in study has improved the want for additional overall flexibility and additional versatility in supercomputing, which is particularly what we can supply with our BullSequana XH2000 so that our clients can profit from the new capacities of hybrid workloads.” claimed Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos.

The supercomputer is co-financed by the Republic of Bulgaria and EuroHPC JU with a joint financial investment totaling EUR eleven.5 million.

In addition to this EuroHPC tender, Atos’ BullSequana will also be utilised in four supplemental EuroHPC supercomputing centres CINECA in Italy, IZUM in Slovenia, with LuxProvide in Luxembourg and in the Minho Highly developed Computing Centre in Portugal, thus reinforcing Atos’ situation as a European chief in substantial-performance computing.

31 Atos supercomputers are shown in the TOP500 all over the world supercomputer ranking, with a combined peak performance of 251 petaflops – this is an boost of 79% in petaflops from the TOP500 listing in June 2020.
