Force10 Cites Gains Linking World's Largest Supercomputers

Force10 Networks' TeraScale E-Series family of switch/routers are being used as the foundation for 29 of the world's largest supercomputers, according to the most recent list from Computer clustering has become the dominant design for supercomputers, with 72 percent of the world's largest supercomputers leveraging this architecture.

Seven of the top 50 supercomputers, including IBM's top two cluster supercomputers, the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (No. 11) and Indiana University (No. 23), depend on the TeraScale E-Series. Additionally, of the top 10 supercomputers that are powered by Dell, seven are anchored by the TeraScale E-Series, including Sandia National Laboratories (No. 6), the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (No. 37), the University of Buffalo Center for Computational Research (No. 57), the Texas Advanced Computing Center (No. 65) and Brigham Young University (No. 87).
