IBM announced its next generation supercomputing project, Blue Gene/Q, to be housed in the Energy Department. It will will provide an ultra-scale technical computing platform to solve the most challenging problems facing engineers and scientists.

Blue Gene/Q is expected to predict the path of hurricanes, analyze the ocean floor to discover oil, simulate nuclear weapons performance and decode gene sequences.

The system, named “Sequoia,“ is expected to achieve 20 petaflops at peak performance, making it one of the fastest supercomputers in the world.

It will be fully deployed in 2012 at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, which is a premier multidisciplinary national security laboratory for DOE“™s National Nuclear Security Administration.

Blue Gene/Q operates at an order of magnitude faster than previous systems, deploying 16 multi-processing core technology and a scalable peak performance up to 100 petaflops“”a massive leap forward in parallel computing power.

“Completing computationally intensive projects for a wide variety of scientific applications that were previously unsolvable is not just possible – it is now probable,“ said Brian Connors, VP of technical computing at IBM.

“IBM“™s historic role in developing the supercomputers that provide the power behind critical applications across every industry has uniquely positioned us to provide reliable supercomputing at the highest level,“ he added.
