Atos announces through its technological brand Bull, that according to the international benchmark from Standard Performance Evaluation Cooperative (SPEC)* its bullion servers beat yet again performance records. Performed with a 16-socket configuration, this benchmark demonstrates that the high-end enterprise bullion x86 servers perform at exceptional levels and thus the most powerful in the world in terms of speed and memory.
Bullion is widely deployed in businesses and governments, mainly in Europe, North America, Africa and Brazil. Through its unique features, it supports the digital transformation of many clients including the City of Helsinki. It also simplifies all operations, for example for OPO Oeschger in Switzerland, guaranteeing delivery within 24 hours for all items listed in its massive catalogue.
• An exceptional memory footprint, up to 24 TB (terabytes), to address Big Data applications, in-memory and real time, for example with the SAP HANA® appliance where bullion achieved 16TB certification,
• A significant Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) reduction of large datalakes and virtualized clusters reaching up to 35% on database consolidation projects,
• A technological alternative at lower cost for Sparc and HP-UX systems.
“This recognition is a real pride for the Group. Bull’s technological expertise in the field of infrastructure is again underligned. The power demonstrated by bullion, coupled with its exceptional memory capacity, makes it the benchmark of servers and supports our ambition to become a world leader in Big Data and SAP HANA“, said Emmanuel Le Roux, Head of Server & Appliances division at Atos.
The latest generation bullion servers, bullion S, equipped with 384 cores from Intel® Xeon® processor (E7v4 family) and 4TB of RAM, achieved a peak performance of 14100 – 13600 Base – according to SPECInt_rate2006 benchmark. This new top performance is proof of the relevance of technological choices for these bullion servers, a modular and consistent range, from 2-16 sockets. This high level of performance combined with the platform high density and innovative architecture enabled to deploy a whole range of appliances for all heavy workloads environments such as the market leading SAP HANA and datalake or database.
