It’s one thing to know the history of supercomputing; it’s another thing entirely to see it visualized as a series of milestones.
Peer1 Hosting recently created a detailed infographic that traces the roots of supercomputing and the evolution of HPC over the years, beginning with the first definitions of computing in the first part of the 20th century, to the core technologies that spawned modern supercomputers, including innovations in analog, relay, and vaccuum tube-based technology. Eventually, "computers became 'super' as multiple processors were linked together and multiple processes could be performed on the same sets of data."
The graphic goes beyond the last Top500 years, taking us into the next 20 years—a time during which supercomputers “are expected to develop self-awareness.”

10/30/2013 | Cray, DDN, Mellanox, NetApp, ScaleMP, Supermicro, Xyratex | Creating data is easy… the challenge is getting it to the right place to make use of it. This paper discusses fresh solutions that can directly increase I/O efficiency, and the applications of these solutions to current, and new technology infrastructures.
10/01/2013 | IBM | A new trend is developing in the HPC space that is also affecting enterprise computing productivity with the arrival of “ultra-dense” hyper-scale servers.
Ken Claffey, SVP and General Manager at Xyratex, presents ClusterStor at the Vendor Showdown at ISC13 in Leipzig, Germany.
Join HPCwire Editor Nicole Hemsoth and Dr. David Bader from Georgia Tech as they take center stage on opening night at Atlanta's first Big Data Kick Off Week, filmed in front of a live audience. Nicole and David look at the evolution of HPC, today's big data challenges, discuss real world solutions, and reveal their predictions. Exactly what does the future holds for HPC?
