Colin Parris, Power Systems GM points out that the world's largest, fastest super computer runs Power nodes. Information Week states:
"The IBM Sequoia supercomputer, installed at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, runs 16.32 petaflops, using 1.6 million compute cores in 96 racks, each roughly the size of a large refrigerator, Parris said."
Okay, 1.6 million cores; that seems almost unbelievable. What makes it "one" computer? A single console? Something dispatching work to all compute nodes?
