runs an indepth story about 30 years of supercomputers at the Dutch national supercomputer centre SURFsara

Cyber 2015 computer in 1984
30 Mar 2016 - provides an overview of the supercomputers at SURFsara which today is the Dutch national supercomputing centre. The overview starts in 1984 with a Cyber 2015 running at 100 Mflop/s. The current system is a Bull supercomputer called Cartesius with a peak performance of 1,5 Petaflop/s. There will be more upgrades. Atos/Bull HPC-specialist Meiland is even a bit over-optimistic expecting an exascale system in Amsterdam in 2020.
