World’s most indigenous commercial supercomputer deployed for Total

The World’s most powerful supercomputer has been deployed by IBM. The new IBM POWER9-based supercomputer will make French energy Giant, Total, more accurately locate new resources and better assess the potential associated revenue opportunities.

The new Pangea III will be used to improve and accelerate the energy company’s oil and gas exploration missions, which start with crunching massive amounts of seismic data and use modeled seismic images to spot resource locations.

Ranked 11th among the World’ Top supercomputers, Pangea III, enables Total to reduce geological risks in exploration and development, accelerate project maturation and delivery, and increases the value of our assets through optimized field operations, with all this at lower cost.

To build Pangea III, IBM worked with Nvidia to enhance the supercomputer with GPUs, in this case its Tesla V100 Tensor Core units, which connect with Power9 CPUs over high-speed links.
