How does your network’s total computer power compare to the world’s fastest supercomputer?

Locked away in cold rooms, supercomputers work tirelessly to figure out the greatest problems. Supercomputers are exactly what they sound like: extremely powerful, fast computers capable of petaflop speeds. In order to make supercomputers so powerful, thousands of processors are linked together in a massively parallel structure, which allows them to work simultaneously on a single operation. IBM’s Summit currently is the fastest supercomputer in the world, capable of 200 petaflops or 200,000 teraflops. A petaflop can be expressed as a quadrillion (thousand trillion) floating point operations per second. To put that in human terms: If every person on Earth completed one calculation per second, it would take 305 days to do what this supercomputer can do in 1 second. Cooling Summit requires 4,000 gallons of water a minute, and the supercomputer takes up the physical space of two tennis courts. How does that compare to your network’s total computing power? Let’s find out. We’ve created a report that calculates your total computer power in teraflops. Lansweeper will tell you in no time if you even come close Summit’s 200,000 teraflops. If you haven’t already, download a free trial of Lansweeper to run the report and compare your network’s total computer power with the worlds fastest supercomputer. Source: IBM
