From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search For other uses, see Supercomputer (disambiguation) The Columbia Supercomputer , located at the NASA Ames Research Center A 1985 supercomputer Cray-2 A supercomputer is a computer that is at the frontline of current processing capacity, particularly speed of calculation. Supercomputers were introduced in the 1960s and were designed primarily by Seymour Cray at Control Data Corporation (CDC), which led the market into the 1970s until Cray left to form his own company, Cray Research . He then took over the supercomputer market with his new designs, holding the top spot in supercomputing for five years (1985–1990). In the 1980s a large number of smaller competitors entered the market, in parallel to the creation of the minicomputer market a decade earlier, but many of these disappeared in the mid-1990s "supercomputer market crash". Today, supercomputers are typically one-of-a-kind custom designs produced by "traditional" companies such as Cray IBM and Hewlett-Packard , who had purchased many of the 1980s companies to gain their experience. As of October 2010

NAS FACT NAS' Pleiades supercomputer is named after the open star cluster in the constellation of Taurus. The cluster is also known as M45, the Seven Sisters, and (in Japan) Subaru. The cluster is dominated by hot blue stars which have formed within the last 100 million years. Astronomers estimate that the cluster will survive for about another 250 million years.
For 25 years, the NAS Division has been dedicated to providing scientists and engineers with the supercomputing resources and simulation tools needed to carry out critical NASA missions and make new scientific discoveries for the benefit of humankind.

IBM continues TOP500 lead
According to the June 2010 (link resides outside of List of Supercomputers, IBM continues to lead the list for the twenty-second consecutive time with the most installed aggregate performance. IBM has regained the lead with the most entries on the list with 196. IBM also leads the Top 10 for the twelfth consecutive time with a total of four of the systems including, the #3 system, the first system to sustain a petaflop of performance, which IBM built for the "Roadrunner" project at the Los Alamos National Lab. Other systems in Top 10 were the #5 IBM Blue Gene/P system at Forschungszentrum Juelich, with over 825 teraflops which is the most powerful supercomputer in Europe. The IBM Blue Gene/L at the US Department of Energy Lawrence Livermore National Lab, long time previous leader, is now the #8 system, and the #9 IBM Blue Gene/P at Argonne National Lab.

    MSI Research Spotlight - October 2010
    • AFTOL: Resolving the Evolutionary History of the Fungi is a project that involves researchers at ten universities and many collaborators in the mycological community. It will contribute to understanding the lineage of fungi-fungi phylogeny-at multiple levels and will promote training and education in fungal biology. In support of this project, the research group of Professor David J. McLaughlin (Plant Biology) is coordinating analysis of subcellular characters as well as studying molecular phylogenetics of selected species. Part of this project includes the development of a Structural and Biochemical Database. This database will become a major resource for the scientific community, managing and providing morphological and biochemical information on fungi and serving as a phyloinformatics tool.

    A history of supercomputing.
    Dan Calle
    First of all, just what is a supercomputer? We all know what microcomputers are and a growing number of people know what workstations are (really just very high-end microcomputers running a multi-user operating system), but when asked about mini-computers, mainframes, and supercomputers, many people, even those who have used such systems, will return less certain, often conflicting, answers. The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing has this definition for "supercomputer:" A broad term for one of the fastest computers currently available. Such computers are typically used for number crunching including scientific simulations, (animated) graphics, analysis of geological data (e.g. in petrochemical prospecting), structural analysis, computational fluid dynamics, physics, chemistry, electronic design, nuclear energy research and meteorology. Perhaps the best known supercomputer manufacturer is Cray Research The speed of most computers was, for many years, measured by how many millions of instructions per second, or MIPS, they could execute. Variability in instruction sets has made this benchmark a poor indicator of performance and so it is rarely used anymore. Since supercomputers have always been number-crunchers, their speed is measured in floating point operations per second, or FLOPS, in units of megaflops (MFLOPS), gigaflops (GFLOPS), and teraflops (TFLOPS) which refer to millions, billions, and trillions of FLOPS, respectively.
