What if you had a computer that could handle more than two hundred quadrillion calculations per second, or roughly five hundred thousand times the number of stars in the Milky Way? And, could store the entire world’s social media data in one place? What if that super computer was already deployed and beginning to run test cases?
IBM, Nvidia, Mellanox, and Red Hat have worked together to create Summit and Sierra for Oak Ridge (ORNL) and Lawrence Livermore (LLNL) National Labs. These state-of-the-art supercomputers are built with everyday IBM POWER9 processors and IBM Storage that will run traditional HPC workloads and AI workloads. They were not developed as highly customized, one-off systems seen in previous HPC solutions.
