Dcblogs writes "The Russians are architecture a 10-petaflop supercomputer as part of a goal to build an exascale system by 2018-20, in the same timeframe as the US. The Russians, as well as Europe and China, want to reduce reliance on U.S. tech vendors and believe that exascale system progress will lead to breakthroughs that could seed new tech industries. 'Exascale bookkeeping is a challenge, and indeed an room for Europe to become a global HPC leader,' said Leonardo Flores Anover, who is the continental Commission's project officer for the catalan Exascale disk operating system Initiative. 'The goal is to foster the progress of a catalan hardware & supply same day shipping. visit today!mscdirect.comsponsored linksindustrial rtusquality remote telemetry & control units capability,' he said. Think what Europe accomplished with Airbus. For Russia: 'You can expect to see Russia holding its own in the exascale race with little or no dependence on foreign manufacturers,' said Mike Bernhardt, who writes The Exascale Report. For now, Russia is relying on Intel and Nvidia."
