Atos multiplies supercomputing capacity by 12 at CESGA in Spain with new “Finisterrae III”



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

Atos has been picked by the Galician Supercomputing Middle (CESGA), to design and style, deliver and set up a new supercomputing procedure, named Finisterrae III, centered on Atos’ BullSequana X supercomputing architecture, that will multiply the latest capacities of the middle by twelve, while furnishing substantial storage potential. The deal also includes a 30-qubit Atos Quantum Discovering Equipment (Atos QLM30), which destinations CESGA as a pioneer in Spain in quantum simulation.

CESGA will use the supercomputer for study tasks in collaboration with college and industry researchers in Galicia for several strategic locations of science and technological innovation such as nanotechnology, new elements and industrial procedures, wellbeing and everyday living sciences and ocean sciences. It will also endorse the use of HPC and Massive Facts in SMEs.

It will empower customers to undertake new Synthetic Intelligence, Equipment Discovering and Deep Discovering methods and use these in supercomputing. It will also endorse Business 4. and the Industrial Digital Innovation Hub of Galicia, bringing supercomputing methods to general public administrations and extending the use of supercomputing to other locations of know-how, such as Social Sciences and Humanities.

The basic design and style principle of the Finisterrae III venture is to supply a hassle-free, open, productive, versatile, and adaptable infrastructure for diverse computational paradigms. In this perception, the venture will supply access to emerging systems, primarily Quantum Computing, many thanks to the Atos QLM, which will empower professionals, developers, and customers to prepare on the device.

“We are very pleased to supply CESGA with this new supercomputing procedure made with the most current systems which is also a trustworthy and significant-general performance device that contributes to the development of science and technological innovation”, stated Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos. “With this new deal Atos confirms its expertise in providing significant-general performance computing options, opening computing new horizons to the regularly demanding requires of our clients.”

The targets of CESGA are the universalization of Analysis, Growth and Innovation (R&D&I), facilitating access to these assets to a larger amount of entities and providers, as perfectly as producing a link in between locations of know-how (mainstreaming) and supporting the growing complexity of investigations.

Quantum simulation

The Atos QLM is a simulator that allows customers to develop, improve and exam quantum programs. Combining an ultra-compact, significant-run device with a common programming language. It allows researchers and engineers to develop and experiment with quantum software program and is the world’s only quantum software program development and simulation equipment. The procedure simulates the laws of physics, which are at the heart of quantum computing, to work out the exact execution of a quantum program with double-digit precision.

Technological specs:

Finisterrae III will multiply the computing potential of the past CESGA supercomputer by twelve, furnishing a computing electric power of 4 PetaFLOPS by means of 354 computing nodes outfitted with most current generation Intel Xeon Ice Lake 8352Y processors of 32 cores at 2.2GHz.

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

Alongside one another, the supercomputer nodes have 118 TB aggregate memory and five PB disk storage potential centered on NetApp technological innovation.

Storage – For regional storage, nodes involve NVMe SSD reliable point out drives, with an aggregate potential of 355TB and blazing-quickly details input/ output pace. The new procedure also has a 20 PB potential long term details storage subsystem.

Interconnect – The nodes are linked by a significant potential, pretty minimal latency Infiniband HDR100 interconnect community.
