HP supercomputer dominance

HP is touting its role in a newly-published list of the 500 most powerful supercomputers in the world. According to TOP500, over 40 percent of the list is dominated by HP systems, specifically the Cluster Platform 3000BL and 4000BL, based on BladeSystem c-Class servers. The figure represents a 10 growth for HP since November of 2006.

The company is not, however, the creator of the fastest supercomputer. That mantle belongs to IBM, who produced the Blue Gene/L installed at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (pictured). Using the Linpack benchmark, the computer was rated at 280.6 teraflops per second. IBM is already attempting to break the petaflop barrier with the Blue Gene /P, which will be deployed elsewhere by the end of 2007.
