Atos offers HPC cloud access to Bulgarian and EuroHPC supercomputer Discoverer


Atos International

Paris, France – November 142022 – Atos today announces the expansion of its Nimbix Federated Supercomputing offering to Europe through the integration of Discoverer, a EuroHPC JU supercomputer hosted by the Petascale Supercomputer Bulgaria consortium at Sofia Tech Park, Sofia, Bulgaria. Nimbix EuroHPC-approved users around the world can now benefit from the compute power of the Discoverer platform in the cloud, alongside other supercomputing resources already available.

As HPC-in-the-cloud models evolve from limited, high-investment options to flexible, scalable, as-a-service models, the Nimbix supercomputing suite Federates large machines and clouds along with managed services to enable an on-demand collaborative scientific computing platform. It provides a unified and secure service console to manage all computing zones and regions in a public or private HPC, AI and supercomputing federation. With this industry-first offering, Atos is expanding and democratizing HPC adoption by unleashing the power of cloud computing unavailable from any other service provider.

This unique initiative offers both customers and resource owners the opportunity to optimally and flexibly utilize the available supercomputing power while enabling federated capabilities to further develop collaboration across borders and accelerate time to innovation in different areas. Customers enjoy all the benefits of HPC cloud computing services (aka HPC as a Service): from optimized performance to scalable resources available as a service anywhere they want to run, with the benefit of bare- metal performance. By maximizing the productive use of compute resources, customers can also use the power used to run those machines more efficiently and not add a new compute endpoint.

Emmanuel Le Roux, SVP, Global Head from HPC, AI and Quantum, Atos, commented”As a European leader in High Performance Computing (HPC)Atos makes it a priority to democratize and expand HPC access its uses, particularly through breakthrough hybridization applications. Our Nimbix suite is at the heart of this strategy by providing access to its users on demand HPC and AI resourcesfrom everywhere, to thanks to the power of the cloud. We are honored announce this partnership today With PetaSC Bulgaria and having them on board This pioneering Offer. The more resources will be are available in our offer, the more advantages result from it scientists and researchers.

Peter state v, Sofia Technology park, chairman of supervisory board from consortium “petascale Supercomputer Bulgaria”, said “We are happy extend our partnership with atos and start using it atos Nimbix suite. It allows us to offer on demand part of explorer‘s resources over so-called “HPC as a service to New national and international business customers, With unparalleled flexibility and mission speed. That is a important milestone for our team how it extends ours academic and business clients base that we serve Use a combination of different Not- and for-profit access models.

Earl Joseph, CEO of Hyperion Research highlighted: “Cloud computing is expanding the horizons of the HPC market and is an unprecedented opportunity to further democratize its uses. The start of Atos’ Nimbix The supercomputing suite was timely earlier this year to support the growth of the cloud HPC market by enabling scalable on-demand computing and federated workloads. The extension of this offer to a large aircraft like the Bulgarian EuroHPC The supercomputer Discoverer will pave the way for new collaborations around the world and accelerate innovation through new HPC models.

From 13.11th until 18.11th Atos will participate in 2022 SC2022: Meet our experts at booth #2809! You can also attend the official launch of Atos’ next generation hybrid HPC, BullSequana XH3000, learn more about the new Nimbix Supercomputing Suite and hear the latest developments in our ThinkAI portfolio.

Around Explorer supercomputer

The Bulgarian supercomputer Discoverer was inaugurated in October 2021 and funded through a joint investment of around EUR 11.5 million, coming 35% from the EuroHPC JU and 65% from the Republic of Bulgaria. The Discoverer design is based on ATOS BullSequana XH2000 technology and is a petascale supercomputer with a performance of 4.5 petaflops. In June 2021, Discoverer turned 91 years oldSt fastest supercomputer in the world. Discoverer provides HPC services to a wide range of academic and industrial users in Bulgaria, the Balkan region and Europe. The main mission of the Discoverer is to support the development of applications in science, public sector and industry in areas such as health, ecology, agriculture or material design, such as: B. the discovery of new drugs, a better understanding of molecular interactions or the promotion of climate and seismic simulation.
