Washington, April 28 (ANI): Scientists are developing the world's most powerful supercomputer, Blue Waters.
The Blue Waters project, created especially for open scientific research, is expected to go live in 2011.
It will be the first system of its kind to sustain one petaflop performance - one quadrillion calculations per second - on a range of science and engineering applications.
The project is being developed as a joint effort of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, its National Center for Supercomputing Applications, IBM, and the Great Lakes Consortium for Petascale Computation, which includes Iowa State.
Blue Waters is supported by the National Science Foundation and the University of Illinois. (ANI)
