Our HPC service teams offer a complete portfolio of professional services, with the required competence and experience to support the design, installation, operation, management, and continuous improvement of HPC infrastructures.
Atos experts can help you ensure your applications make the most of the latest HPC technologies. Our expert services include:
– Recommendations to application developers so that they can leverage new parallel technologies (accelerators, co-processors, hybrid systems, many-core processors…)
– Optimization of commercial and open-source applications
– Proof-of-concept to introduce end-users to the benefits of parallelism at the start of the project
– I/O and network optimization
– Ensuring applications make the most of your Bull supercomputers from day one, with the Fast Start program that addresses the porting, optimizing and configuring of your applications well ahead of system delivery.
Data Center and Energy Efficiency
There are many ways to optimize energy consumption, from energy-efficient hardware, with Direct Liquid Cooling technology for example, to optimized cooling system, and including also scheduler configuration, or the setting of energy KPIs to make your applications energy-aware.
Atos’s range of expertise in data center efficiency includes customer site analysis, logistics requirements, standard compliance, data center integration, and maintenance and support.
For example, to optimize data center design, Atos can simulate an entire computing room, including air flows for optimum cooling, and modeled cable routes and rack locations.
Bull extreme factory is a set of Cloud services combined with HPC expertise that gives businesses of all sizes, in all sectors, access to made-to-measure supercomputing resources. The flexibility and elasticity of the Cloud means everyone can have the resources they need; simply, cost-effectively and securely. System administrators also benefit from greater usability, because the portal lets them manage resources, tasks and users centrally.
As a matter of efficiency and operation costs, Atos experts ensure you remain compliant with your SLAs.
Atos teams can run your operations until the skills transfer and handover to your team. Our service operation consists in remote monitoring coupled with event management, trouble ticketing coupled with incident management and user request management, change management with impact analysis and on-going optimization service including problem management, knowledge management and documentation.
As a standard part of the installation process, Atos provides on-site, tailored, workshop training for the system administration team. Atos can also deliver on request a range of advanced training programs for HPC users and HPC developers, which will help your teams make the most of their Bull supercomputer and run operations in an optimal way.
Proposed training courses include application development and optimization, how to port applications and what compilation options to select, how to improve performance, for example how to improve job submissions, or how to choose message queues. Some training course are dedicated to operations and system administration, OS management and tools (batch manager, file system management, network management, monitoring…). A specific data management course focuses on data assessment.
