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

Atos has been picked by the Galician Supercomputing Center (CESGA), to layout, deliver and put in a new supercomputing procedure, named Finisterrae III, primarily based on Atos’ BullSequana X supercomputing architecture, that will multiply the latest capacities of the center by twelve, while supplying huge storage ability. The agreement also involves a thirty-qubit Atos Quantum Learning Device (Atos QLM30), which locations CESGA as a pioneer in Spain in quantum simulation.

CESGA will use the supercomputer for analysis assignments in collaboration with university and business scientists in Galicia for numerous strategic locations of science and technologies this sort of as nanotechnology, new elements and industrial procedures, well being and everyday living sciences and ocean sciences. It will also endorse the use of HPC and Big Info in SMEs.

It will allow end users to undertake new Artificial Intelligence, Device Learning and Deep Learning strategies and use these in supercomputing. It will also endorse Field four. and the Industrial Digital Innovation Hub of Galicia, bringing supercomputing strategies to community administrations and extending the use of supercomputing to other locations of knowledge, this sort of as Social Sciences and Humanities.

The essential layout principle of the Finisterrae III job is to present a practical, open up, economical, versatile, and adaptable infrastructure for various computational paradigms. In this sense, the job will present accessibility to rising systems, particularly Quantum Computing, many thanks to the Atos QLM, which will allow specialists, developers, and end users to train on the machine.

“We are very pleased to present CESGA with this new supercomputing procedure designed with the most recent systems which is also a dependable and substantial-general performance tool that contributes to the advancement of science and technologies”, claimed Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos. “With this new agreement Atos confirms its skills in delivering substantial-general performance computing methods, opening computing new horizons to the continually demanding desires of our shoppers.”

The objectives of CESGA are the universalization of Investigation, Development and Innovation (R&D&I), facilitating accessibility to these assets to a bigger amount of entities and businesses, as perfectly as developing a link concerning locations of knowledge (mainstreaming) and supporting the raising complexity of investigations.

Quantum simulation

The Atos QLM is a simulator that allows end users to build, optimize and exam quantum applications. Combining an extremely-compact, substantial-run machine with a universal programming language. It allows scientists and engineers to build and experiment with quantum application and is the world’s only quantum application improvement and simulation apparatus. The procedure simulates the rules of physics, which are at the heart of quantum computing, to work out the specific execution of a quantum software with double-digit precision.

Specialized specifications:

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

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

Together, the supercomputer nodes have 118 TB mixture memory and 5 PB disk storage ability primarily based on NetApp technologies.

Storage – For area storage, nodes involve NVMe SSD strong state drives, with an mixture ability of 355TB and blazing-rapidly details input/ output velocity. The new procedure also has a 20 PB ability long lasting details storage subsystem.

Interconnect – The nodes are linked by a substantial ability, quite lower latency Infiniband HDR100 interconnect network.
