IBM Blue Gene Supercomputer

The IBM Blue Gene Supercomputer is a massively parallel system based on the PowerPC processor. It derives its computing power from scalability and energy efficiency. Each computing node of Blue Gene is optimized to achieve high computational rate per unit of power and to operate with other nodes in parallel. This approach results in a system that can scale to very large sizes and deliver substantial aggregate performance.
