Intel and SGI to Provide Supercomputing for NASA's Project Pleides

Intel and SGI will collaborate to provide next generation supercomputing capabilities for modeling and simulation at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) facility at NASA's Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, California.

Specifically, NASA Ames, Intel and SGI will work together on a project called Pleiades to develop a computational system with a capacity of one Petaflops peak performance (1,000 trillion operations per second) by 2009 and a system with a peak performance of 10 Petaflops (10,000 trillion operations per second) by 2012.http://www.nas.nasa.gov/http://www.intel.com
