Exascale Day

Start with the right partner.

We've been helping visionaries like you solve the most complex computing problems for over four decades.

While it’s fun that October 18 is 10/18 or 10.18, just like the scientific abbreviation for a quintillion, Exascale Day is so much more than a number.

Exascale Day is to celebrate the scientists and researchers who make breakthrough discoveries with the help of some of the fastest supercomputers in the world. Exascale supercomputers won’t just answer the same old questions more quickly. Exascale allows for bigger questions to be asked in today’s language–with artificial intelligence, analytics, IoT, simulations, and modeling workloads–it is a fundamental shift in how we approach problem-solving.

What would you do if you had access to the most powerful supercomputer in the history of the world? A fun hypothetical question, except we asked people for whom it is not hypothetical, in our first Exascale Day webcast.

You’re invited to watch the first annual Exascale Day webcast on October 18 (1018, of course!)

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Exascale Computing Project; global supercomputing leader, Cray, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company; and the DOE laboratories that will house the nation’s first three exascale supercomputers: Argonne, Oak Ridge and Lawrence Livermore hosted a panel discussion on how the advanced technology of the Exascale Era will change the face of computational science and the advances it will foster.

Watch on demand

How fast is exascale computing? So fast it can solve a quintillion—1018—math problems every second.

Exascale computing means a computing system that can perform at least one exaflop—or one quintillion (a billion billion) calculations per second.

No matter how you look at it, Exascale is huge, not just in sheer numbers, but in societal impact. It’s not just faster; it’s a different approach to fast.
