Paris, France Ghent, Belgium – 24 June 2020

Atos, a international chief in electronic transformation, announces that it has signed a 6-yr agreement for a worth of in excess of ten Million Euro with Ghent College (UGent) to deliver the up coming Tier1 supercomputer for the Flemish Supercomputer Middle VSC. This supercomputer will aid researchers from tutorial exploration institutions, authorities and industry to pace up time-consuming calculations and clear up intricate computational problems: from modeling weather conditions and climate modify to supporting the development of renewable electrical power and accelerating the search for new drugs. Most drastically, supercomputers have recently been instrumental in exploration combatting COVID-19, including in Flanders.

Antoine Kerrinckx, CEO at Atos in Belux: “Technological know-how is becoming ever more important in our society. We assume it is important that researchers have the proper tools and infrastructure at their disposal. We are delighted to lead to the

Paris, June 29, 2020

Atos, a worldwide leader in electronic transformation, and GENCI, the French nationwide higher-efficiency computing organization, and the CEA, reveal that Joliot-Curie supercomputer with its 22 petaflop/s peak computing electricity is the most highly effective supercomputer in France dedicated to tutorial and industrial open investigate, and the 3rd most highly effective investigate computer in Europe, according to the TOP500 ranking released on 22 June 2020. This supercomputer is derived from the co-structure function carried out by the CEA with Atos for a lot more than twenty a long time*, and which designed it possible to outline present-day electricity computing architectures. The Joliot-Curie supercomputer ranks in 34th position in the TOP500 and is driven by Atos’ BullSequana XH2000 platform and the most up-to-date AMD Rome processors.

Virtually one particular 12 months on from its inauguration, Joliot-Curie is now running at entire pace for the very last 6 months
