The U.S. government is currently working on a breakthrough in the field of computer science: a supercomputer. The device will be used by the NNSA (Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration) will be ten times faster than the most powerful computers. This computer will ensure that NNSA resolves very urgent scientific problems in a very short time. So it will need less than an hour to perform a calculation for which the whole world would need 320 years if every day at 24 hours 24 hours would work. IBM will develop supercomputer for these two systems. The first system is Sequoia, a 20 petaflop / s system based on the BlueGene technology. The second is a 500 Teraflop / s BlueGene / P system that bears the name Dawn.
