This article follows on the announcement of the Open Edge and HPC Intitiative – aka Arm Alliance.
The Atos quote mentions Mont-Blanc:
“We fully support the initiative to develop and support an open ecosystem to develop Arm-based solutions for HPC,” said Jean-Marc Denis, Head of Strategy, BigData and Security at Atos. “As one of the three core partners of the Mont-Blanc Project, together with Arm and the Barcelona Computing Center, we’re assessing the potential of using Arm-based clusters to address exascale needs and we’re proud to help advance this with the first productized supercomputer to use Arm processors – our BullSequana X1310. We are also in charge of the European Processor Initiative, which as of today brings together 23 partners from 10 European countries. Our aim is to develop and bring to market a European low-power microprocessor that will be at the heart of the European exascale supercomputer effort.”
