Atos strengthens computing capacity of national supercomputing centre in Czech Republic with the new BullSequana supercomputer

29 Nov 2018 Paris, Ostrava - Atos, a global expert in digital transformation, has signed a contract to deliver its latest supercomputer, the BullSequana XH2000, to IT4Innovations, the national supercomputing centre in the Czech Republic. The new supercomputer will be located in the National Supercomputing Center IT4Innovations, which is part of the Technical University of Ostrava and will be 8 times more powerful than its predecessor Anselm, which was installed in 2013. The BullSequana will be available to the entire scientific community in the Czech Republic. The delivery date of the new machine is April 2019.

Scientists from Czech universities as well as those from prestigious scientific centres will use the supercomputer. Its usage will be divided between the development of new materials and medicines (50%) and in the sectors of biosciences, engineering, astrophysics and a range of other science disciplines (50%).

"The demand of Czech scientists for computing resources exceeds our currently available capacity by about 100%. This modernization will increase our capabilities and help us address this problem. At the same time, Czech scientists will have a state-of-the-art technology that will enable them to keep pace with the rest of the world", stated Vít Vondrák, Director of IT4Innovations.

"We're proud to be continuing to work with IT4Innovations and support scientists in the Czech Republic further their research", stated Agnès Boudot, Vice President HPC & Quantum at Atos. "Our new BullSequana XH2000, launched last week at SC'18, includes the latest CPU and GPU processor and accelerator architectures to provide more computing power to enable AI-augmented HPC simulation, and to support users go beyond the limits of traditional simulation."

In the competitive tender process, Atos was selected not only for its competitive pricing but also due to the most advanced technologies available included in the BullSequana XH2000. Czech scientists will now have access to the latest generation of Intel processors and NVIDIA's most powerful GPU accelerators.
