Atos’ BullSequana powers the first EuroHPC supercomputer operational at IZUM in Slovenia

Dependent on Atos’ BullSequana XH2000, the ‘Vega’ supercomputer was inaugurated at the Institute of Information and facts Science (IZUM) in Slovenia

Maribor (Slovenia), Paris (France) April 21, 2021

Atos and the Institute of Information and facts Science (IZUM) in Maribor, Slovenia, now announce that the first EuroHPC supercomputer is now operational. This is the ‘Vega’ supercomputer, primarily based on Atos’ BullSequana XH2000 architecture, which is now set up adhering to a start off-up ceremony hosted by IZUM with the Primary Minister of the Republic of Slovenia, Janez Janša, in attendance, jointly with the Government Vice-President of the European Commission Margrethe Vestager, the Minister of Schooling, Science and Sport Dr. Simona Kustec and the Government Director of EuroHPC Joint Enterprise Anders Dam Jensen.

Vega, the premier supercomputer in the region, is primarily based at IZUM, a public infrastructural institution and investigate organization set up by the Federal government of the Republic of Slovenia. It will be used to assistance the development of foremost scientific, public sector and industrial purposes in lots of domains, which includes personalized medication, bio-engineering, climate forecasting, combat versus local climate modify and getting new materials and medicine.

It will deliver scientists from Slovenia and the EuroHPC community with a present day infrastructure delivering optimum functionality for computing, facts processing, higher-functionality facts evaluation (HPDA), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Equipment Learning model development with speedy community connectivity to other computing facilities in Slovenia and Europe.

Dr. Aleš Bošnjak, Director of IZUM: We’re delighted to announce the start off-up of the first EuroHPC supercomputer in this article in Slovenia. Now we can drive ahead our investigate and innovation projects, in distinct our HPC RIVR job style ambitions, supporting Slovenian and European scientists and users from the public and marketplace sectors, to meet up with new worries and further add to the regional and European HPC initiatives.”

Named Vega, soon after Slovenian mathematician Jurij Vega, the new petascale supercomputer will be co-owned and jointly operated by the EuroHPC JU (The European Superior-Effectiveness Computing Joint Enterprise). Capable of executing much more than six,eight petaflops (six,eight million billion calculations per next), the technique will be among the world’s best 5 supercomputers.

Agnes Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos concluded “As the foremost European supercomputer manufacturer, we are very pleased to be contributing in the direction of advancing investigate and innovation in Slovenia and in Europe. ‘Vega’, as section of the EuroHPC program and community, is section of a European worldclass supercomputing ecosystem and will assistance Europe compete globally in strategic domains such as synthetic intelligence, bio-engineering and the combat versus local climate modify.”

Atos was awarded a 5-year €17.three million euro agreement to source, set up and manage the BullSequana XH2000 ‘Vega’ supercomputer.
