With the news that Open MPI is being used on the K supercomputer (i.e., the #1 machine on the June 2011 Top500 list), another colleague of mine, Ralph Castain —
A huge congratulations goes goes out to the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science and Fujitsu teams who saw the K supercomputer achieve over 8 petaflops in the June 2011
Lotsa news coming out in the ramp-up to SC. Probably the biggest is that about China being the proud owners of the 2.5-petaflop computing monster named “Tianhe-1A”. Congratulations to all involved!
