Atos: supercomputer expanded in Edinburgh
(CercleFinance.com) - Atos has announced a three-year contract extension between its subsidiary Eviden and the University of Edinburgh, to increase the capacity of the BullSequana XH2000 supercomputer provided to support the work of the Universities of Cambridge, Durham, Leicester and Edinburgh.
This will enable the UK scientific community to pursue cutting-edge research on a wide range of topics, from simulating the evolution of the universe to modelling the fundamental structure of matter, Atos said.
As part of the contract, Eviden will increase the power of the existing system by providing additional hardware, including 256 NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core graphics processing units (GPUs), which increases its capacity by 80%.
