Sequoia is the fastest computer in the world. Installed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, it's 96 racks of IBM Blue Gene/Q--with an astonishing 1.6 million processor cores. Sequoia produces 16 petaflops of computation muscle. That's 16 quadrillion operations per second. It's an important stepping stone on the way to exascale computing--machines that will be 50 times as fast as today's fastest.
