super computers: red storm , cray xt3 , mare nostram y bluegene

The Red Storm is based on:

  • 10,368 × 2 GHz AMD Opteron CPUs
  • CPU boards vertically mounted in 108 cabinets
  • 4 GFLOPS per CPU (40 TFLOPS total)
  • 1 GB per CPU (10 TB total)
  • shared memory inside the node
  • 3D mesh full interconnect

Software: The nodes themselves will run custom Sandia-developed light-weight OS code-named Catamount. The service and storage nodes will run SuSE Linux.

The Cray XT3™ System

The Cray XT3™ supercomputer, purpose-built to meet the special needs of capability class HPC applications,offers a new level of scalable computing.

El superordenador "Mare Nostrum"

El sistema más potente de Europa, construido por IBM y capaz de realizar 40 billones de operaciones por segundo, se prepara para el próximo 23 de febrero. El supercomputador, de unos 160 metros cuadrados, será "la máquina más potente del mundo a nivel público", subraya Valero, al tiempo que asegura que se trata del equipo "más potente" para que "cualquier investigador" pueda hacer su trabajo.

Blue Gene

Blue Gene is a computer architecture project designed to produce several next-generation supercomputers, designed to reach operating speeds in the petaflops range, and currently reaching speeds over 100 teraflops. It is a cooperative project between the United States Department of Energy (who are funding the project), industry (IBM in particular), and academia.
