IBM Sequoia supercomputer crown conquest with an output of 16.32 petaflops and consumption of 7.9 megawatts, and is comprised of 6144 racks, each consisting of 16 nodes, each node has 32 compute cards powered by an IBM microprocessor with 16 cores (45nm) accompanied by 16GB of DDR3 ECC memory, ie the monstrous figure of 1,572,864 + 98304GB core IBM Power DDR3 ECC memory. All this enormous computing power is governed by the operating system (Compute Node Linux + Red Hat Enterprise Linux).
