HPC is a computer with a high-level computational capacity compared
to a general-purpose computer.
Measured in floating-point operations per second(FLOPS).
Why do we use them?
Shaheen II, the number 9th in the top 10 list of the
most powerful HPC.
Developed at Pakistan
(National Defense Complex (NDC))
Tianhe-2 or TH-2 is the fastest supercomputer in earth
made by china at 2001 for Simulation, analysis, and
government security applications and purposes.
“The United States cannot afford to take a back seat in computer technology to the Chinese,
or to anyone else. The nation that leads the world in high-performance computing will have
an enormous competitive advantage in every sector, including national defense…”, said Eric
D. Isaacs, Director of Argonne National Laboratory and physicist in University of Chicago
- 32,000 Intel Xeon E5-2692 12C with 2.200 GHz
- Power : 17.6 MW
(24 MW with cooling)
Operating system :
Kylin Linux, developed by 1,300 scientists and engineers at
the National University of Defense Technology in china 2001.
It is named after the mythical beast qilin.
Power and storage.
Verifying and validating application code.
Programming complex massively parallel computers.
A computers distributed around the world
receives small tasks to process and return.
A computer cluster consists of a set of loosely
or tightly connected computers that work
together so that, in many respects, they can
be viewed as a single system.
A Folding@home is an application integrated in PS3 so PS3 owners would
be able to lend the computing power of their game systems to the study
of improper protein folding and associated diseases, such as
Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Huntington's, cystic fibrosis, and several
forms of cancer.
