Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, announces the launch of its new-generation computing platforms to redefine the future of business‐critical computing and HPC. These platforms include Atos’ new server portfolio which will combine the most advanced Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor (codenamed Skylake) technologies with Atos High Performance (HPC), mission critical and mainframe computing expertise. This enhanced technology offers a new-generation computing platform to help clients worldwide easily adapt to dynamic requirements and to keep their infrastructure simple, while maximizing ROI on application investments.

The new Intel Xeon Scalable processor, which is optimized for open exascale-ready supercomputers (capable of eventually executing one billion billion transactions per second), has been introduced into the Bull Sequana X1120 blade server, one of the new-generation servers in Atos’ HPC portfolio. Atos recently announced that it will supply GENCI (Grand Équipement National de Calcul Intensif) with a Bull supercomputer, to follow on from the Curie supercomputer delivered in 2011. The computing nodes in this supercomputer are also equipped with the new Intel Xeon Scalable processors as well as the latest generation of Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors for a total of over 124,700 cores.

The new Bull-branded platforms for enterprise workloads will provide exceptional scalability from 2 to 32 processors with the new Intel Xeon Scalable processor, helping to ensure long-term investment protection. With its innovative ultra-flexible design, it will provide customers with the agility to introduce Machine Learning and AI capacity in traditional enterprise workloads. Real‐time analytics of enterprise production databases will run much faster than on a conventional computer using in‐memory technology. High velocity data‐streams will be analyzed in real‐time to find new market opportunities, whilst ensuring both security and a high- quality service.

“Atos focuses on Data Center transformation and business acceleration driven by Cloud, in-memory computing and Big Data supported by Artificial Intelligence and security while optimizing customer TCO. By combining the new Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor with Atos’ unique high-end server expertise, its new-generation computing platform will support its clients respond to new requirements in data analytics, artificial intelligence and Big Data, converging business‐critical computing and HPC within a single device ”, underlined Arnaud Bertrand, Group SVP, Head of Big Data and HPC at Atos.

”The new Intel Xeon Scalable processor offers more capability for HPC users with more compute power, more I/O and more memory channels,” said Trish Damkroger, Vice President of Technical Computing at Intel. “The new Bull Sequana blade server by Atos is a great example of an innovative, scalable solution that makes the latest technology accessible to more HPC users.”

Atos computers' high-data volume processing capabilities are also maximized within Atos' Big Data services including ‘Atos Codex’, an integrated end-to-end analytics solution including predictive computing and cognitive analytics.
