If you are aware of the & linuxeras & # 39; news beyond MuyLinux, and I'm sure you hear that TOP500 of supercomputers is updated and the new thing is … nothing: everything is Linux, because it's because i two years.
So, class holders The full Linux domain in the TOP500 of supercomputers has lost the impact they have on time and the interest is now geared towards the hardware that the monsters already it's computing and, above all, how the list is shared internationally, because warfare technology has also fought in this section.
In all the details, our colleagues from MuyComputer inform us of an article where they collect investigative data: IBM continues to lead the power thanks to its processors POWER9 (OpenPOWER), Intel is both in terms of the number of supercomputers using their Xeon and it is more common to include NVIDIA accelerators to take advantage of the performance they provide through GPGPU.
And in terms of territories, the United States regained the throne last year at the Summit, the world's newest fastest supercomputer with  59004] 146 petaflops followed by the American Sierra with 94 petaflops and the Chinese and old-known for Sunway TaihuLight it has 93 petaflops and Tianhe-2 with 61 petaflops, although the truth is the number and the accumulated power the Asian giant is the first.
The most significant thing in this regard is, therefore, the TOP500 of supercomputers 144 systems are American and 202 Chinese counting a total strength of 29, 6% and 35.4% respectively Then, to see who is the main actor in this scene.
The main thing, however, is what was taken for: one hundred percent of The TOP500 of supercomputers works on Linux . In what Linux? Traditionally, SUSE is the most prevalent option, but now there is a little bit: from Ubuntu's Tianhe-2 tuneb to Red Hat Enterprise Linux of Summit, passing through variants of all kinds.
In short, if one hundred percent TOP500 we added 70 and highest percent of Android in mobility, how the cloud is driving Linux in the server market, or the strong core presence on the Internet of things … All that is missing is the PC desktop. In the meantime.
