During its Technology Days, Atos claims to have introduced the most powerful supercomputer server now available on the international market. This is the BullSequana Edge, which can safely manage and process Internet of Things (IoT) data, close to the source where the data is accessed.

According to Atos, the BullSequana Edge is very suitable for environments and sectors where fast response times are crucial. These include self-propelled cars, health care and airport security. The supercomputers server is also very suitable for environments and sectors in which IoT data has to be processed and analysed in real time.

The BullSequana Edge now presented supports three main application areas. First of all, there is artificial intelligence (AI). Atos Edge Computer Vision must be able to offer high-quality extractions and analyses of ‘features’, such as people, faces, emotions and behaviour. This makes it possible to carry out automated actions on the basis of the analyses.

The supercomputer server also supports big data via Atos Edge Data Analytics. It allows organizations to improve their business models with predictive and prescriptive solutions. Finally, there is Atos Edge Data Container (EDC), an all-in-one solution that can be used as a decentralized IT system. It can also run autonomously in non-Data center environments, without the need for on-site operational management.

Availability

According to Atos, the BullSequana Edge comes with several advantages, including maximum security and privacy. The data and the physical server are protected by a series of high-quality security measures. The server can also perform real-time data analyses and analyse data from different sources and formats in real time.

In addition, it has a low dependence on the availability and connectivity of the cloud and data centres. As a result, apps will not be disturbed if network capacity is limited or interrupted. The BullSequana Edge can communicate via radio, GSM and Wi-Fi. Finally, according to Atos, the supercomputer server offers lower costs for data center infrastructure and networks.

The BullSequana Edge is available immediately. The supercomputer server can be purchased as a standalone infrastructure or in combination with a software platform such as Atos Edge Computer Vision and Edge Data Analytics. The server is also available in a container system such as Atos Edge Data Container. Finally, the server is certified with Microsoft Azure for IoT.
