Santiago de Compostela (Galicia, Spain), Paris (France) July 29, 2021

Atos has been picked by the Galician Supercomputing Centre (CESGA), to design and style, produce and put in a new supercomputing method, named Finisterrae III, centered on Atos’ BullSequana X supercomputing architecture, that will multiply the recent capacities of the center by twelve, while supplying huge storage ability. The contract also features a thirty-qubit Atos Quantum Finding out Device (Atos QLM30), which places CESGA as a pioneer in Spain in quantum simulation.

CESGA will use the supercomputer for study assignments in collaboration with college and sector researchers in Galicia for many strategic places of science and technology these as nanotechnology, new materials and industrial procedures, wellbeing and lifetime sciences and ocean sciences. It will also boost the use of HPC and Significant Details in SMEs.

It will allow end users to undertake new Synthetic Intelligence, Device Finding out and Deep Finding out techniques and use these in supercomputing. It will also boost Sector four. and the Industrial Electronic Innovation Hub of Galicia, bringing supercomputing techniques to community administrations and extending the use of supercomputing to other places of understanding, these as Social Sciences and Humanities.

The simple design and style principle of the Finisterrae III task is to present a convenient, open up, efficient, flexible, and adaptable infrastructure for distinct computational paradigms. In this feeling, the task will present access to emerging systems, specifically Quantum Computing, many thanks to the Atos QLM, which will allow technicians, developers, and end users to practice on the device.

“We are happy to present CESGA with this new supercomputing method developed with the most recent systems which is also a trusted and superior-overall performance tool that contributes to the progression of science and technology”, reported Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos. “With this new contract Atos confirms its skills in delivering superior-overall performance computing methods, opening computing new horizons to the continually demanding wants of our buyers.”

The aims of CESGA are the universalization of Analysis, Growth and Innovation (R&D&I), facilitating access to these resources to a better quantity of entities and firms, as perfectly as making a backlink between places of understanding (mainstreaming) and supporting the increasing complexity of investigations.

Quantum simulation

The Atos QLM is a simulator that allows end users to build, improve and take a look at quantum programs. Combining an ultra-compact, superior-driven device with a universal programming language. It allows researchers and engineers to build and experiment with quantum software package and is the world’s only quantum software package advancement and simulation apparatus. The method simulates the guidelines of physics, which are at the heart of quantum computing, to work out the correct execution of a quantum application with double-digit precision.

Specialized specs:

Finisterrae III will multiply the computing ability of the past CESGA supercomputer by twelve, supplying a computing ability of four PetaFLOPS by means of 354 computing nodes outfitted with most recent generation Intel Xeon Ice Lake 8352Y processors of 32 cores at two.2GHz.

It also incorporates a overall of one hundred forty four GPU accelerators: Nvidia A100 and Nvidia T4 GPU.

Jointly, the supercomputer nodes have 118 TB aggregate memory and 5 PB disk storage ability centered on NetApp technology.

Storage – For nearby storage, nodes include NVMe SSD sound point out drives, with an aggregate ability of 355TB and blazing-quickly data enter/ output speed. The new method also has a 20 PB ability long term data storage subsystem.

Interconnect – The nodes are related by a superior ability, incredibly small latency Infiniband HDR100 interconnect network.
