The CDC 6000 series was a family of mainframe computers manufactured by Control Data Corporation in the 1960s.
The CDC 6600 was the flagship of the 6000 series of mainframe computer systems manufactured by Control Data Corporation.
The Chippewa Operating System often called COS is the discontinued operating system for the CDC 6600 supercomputer, generally considered the first super computer in the world.
This list compares various amounts of computing power in instructions per second organized by order of magnitude in FLOPS.
Control Data Corporation (CDC) was a mainframe and supercomputer firm.
The Cray T3E was Cray Research's second-generation massively parallel supercomputer architecture, launched in late November 1995.
The Cray-2 is a supercomputer with four vector processors made by Cray Research starting in 1985.
The history of computer clusters is best captured by a footnote in Greg Pfister's In Search of Clusters: “Virtually every press release from DEC mentioning clusters says ‘DEC, who invented clusters...’. IBM did not invent them either.
National Supercomputing Mission is a proposed plan by Government of India to create a cluster of seventy supercomputers connecting various academic and research institutions across India.
Quasi-opportunistic supercomputing is a computational paradigm for supercomputing on a large number of geographically disperse computers.
Approaches to supercomputer architecture have taken dramatic turns since the earliest systems were introduced in the 1960s.
China operates a number of supercomputer centers which, altogether, hold 29.3% performance share of world's fastest 500 supercomputers.
Several centers for supercomputing exist across Europe, and distributed access to them is coordinated by European initiatives to facilitate high-performance computing.
India's supercomputer program was started in late 1980s because Cray supercomputers were denied for import due to an arms embargo imposed on India, as it was a dual-use technology and could be used for developing nuclear weapons.
Japan operates a number of centers for supercomputing which hold world records in speed, with the K computer becoming the world's fastest in June 2011.
System X (pronounced "System Ten") was a supercomputer assembled by Virginia Tech's Advanced Research Computing facility in the summer of 2003.
