Behind the Scenes at NASA's New Linux Site
Issue #130, February 2005
The two fastest computers on the planet are Linux systems. One of them is
Columbia, built by SGI and located at NASA Ames Research Center in
Mountain View, California.
With the arrival of the Fall 2004 TOP500 list,
two Linux-based systems now top the rankings of
the world's fastest computers: IBM's BlueGene/L,
at 70.72TFlops, and SGI's Columbia at 51.87TFlops.
