HPE builds next-generation ABCI supercomputer powered by NVIDIA to strengthen development capabilities of AIST’s generative AI
infrastructure
*AIST will significantly increase the computing power required for the development of generative AI with ABCI 3.0 and encourage industry, government, and academia to use cloud services of powerful
supercomputers*
Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE) (Hewlett-Packard Japan LLC, Headquarters: Koto-ku, Tokyo, Representative Executive Officer and President: Mochizuki)
Today, the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST: AIST) announced the launch of AI Bridging Cloud (ABCI), a next-generation AI supercomputer powered by NVIDIA. 3.0). ABCI
3.0 will be provided as a cloud service to industry, government, and academia, promoting the learning of large-scale foundational models for generative AI, and contributing to the acceleration of
cutting-edge research and development and social implementation.

AIST’s ABCI 3.0 supercomputer uses NVIDIA Quantum-2 InfiniBand ( https://www.nvidia.com/ja-jp/networking/quantum2/ ) Network
interconnected and NVIDIA
H200 Tensor Core GPU ( https://www.nvidia.com/ja-jp/data-center/h200/ ) Built in collaboration with HPE and NVIDIA, the HPE Cray XD system with We plan to achieve EFLOPS (exaflops). ABCI expected to be a
supercomputer with Japan’s fastest AI performance
3.0 addresses the computational resource demands of AI workloads.

Antonio Neri, President and CEO of HPE, said:
“Making AI accessible and practical is extremely important for accelerating innovation across industry and creating an impact on society. It is a great honor that AIST’s systems have been selected for NVIDIA’s industry-leading accelerated computing platform. I look forward to contributing to the creation of

The ABCI cloud supercomputing service provided by AIST since 2018 has expanded its use from startups to general electronics manufacturers, and has been used to develop AI technology and large-scale language models (LLM) that support genome decoding and materials informatics. We support a variety of research.

Yoshio Tanaka, executive officer of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, said:
“Recently, with remarkable progress in generative AI, demand for computing resources is increasing.
3.0 supercomputer infrastructure. Our collaboration with HPE and NVIDIA is critical to providing AI cloud services that facilitate the rapid learning of large-scale infrastructure models built from growing datasets of image, acoustic, and sensor information, and ABCI We look forward to even closer collaboration in supporting the 3.0 user community.”

Jensen Huang, Founder and CEO of NVIDIA, said:
“Every country needs its own AI infrastructure to drive innovation and growth. Together with HPE and AIST, we are leveraging Japan’s unique technology and data to drive productivity. We will help boost the economy, stimulate the economy, and accelerate scientific discovery.”
