author by Hans-Werner Meuer

Abstract:

In this paper we discuss the situation world-wide in the field of high-performance computing, based on the latest TOP500 (chapter ). We focus especially on statistics of the complete list, i.e. the number of systems installed with respect to the different manufacturers and the different continents. Especially we look at the traditional vector computers in comparison to the MPP systems on the different continents. Finally we outline the dominating role of the USA with respect to the number of systems manufactured and installed.
