Atos has announced it has been awarded a new contract to supply and install a new supercomputing cluster at Technische Universität Dresden (TU) in Germany. The supercomputer will be used for data intensive HPC tasks and data analysis at the Centre for Information Services and High-Performance Computing (ZIH). Based on Atos’ powerful BullSequana XH2000 architecture, researchers at TU Dresden will use the new supercomputer for computational tasks in environmental research, life sciences, material sciences and engineering, as well as for basic research in physics, chemistry and mathematics. It is scheduled to start operations in Autumn 2022.

“We are pleased to continue to support TU Dresden with HPC expertise via our BullSequana XH2000 installation and to continue to enable cutting-edge research,” said Martin Matzke, Senior Vice President, Big Data and Security at Atos Central Europe. “The new system is extremely energy efficient thanks to our patented and world-leading warm water-cooling solution.”

“In addition to the innovative hot water cooling, which will lead to an encouraging increase in the energy efficiency of the system, the balanced architecture and the exceptionally powerful infrastructure for the fast input/output of data are to be highlighted, which sustainably advice important research fields, such as modelling, simulation and data analytics,” added Wolfgang E. Nagel, TU Dresden/ZIH.
