PetaFLOPS Frontier '95
Even as the Federal HPCC Program works towards achieving teraFLOPS computing, far-sighted individuals in government, academia and industry have realized that teraFLOPS - level computing systems will be inadequate to address many scientific and engineering problems that exist now, let alone applications that may, and most assuredly will, arise in the future. As a result, the high performance computing community is examinng the feasibility of achieving petaFLOPS - level computing over a 20 year period.
