Red Storm Supercomputer To Be Increased To 284 TFLOPS By Installing Quad-Core AMD Opterons
As it became known, the company Cray and the research institution Sandia National Laboratories have entered into an agreement, the terms of which provide for the modernization of the Red Storm supercomputer. This system is currently one of the largest and most productive in the world. Its performance is estimated at 124 TFLOPS (trillions of floating point operations per second). After modernization, this figure should be 284 TFLOPS.
Sandia and Cray created Red Storm under a contract with the National Nuclear Security Agency (NNSA) Office of Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC). Red Storm design is the basis for the successful Cray XT line of massively parallel (MPP) and highly scalable supercomputers.
Modernization is scheduled for this summer. It will, in particular, include installing quad-core AMD Opteron processors in a large part of the system and increasing memory up to 2 GB per core throughout the system.
