Amazon Builds the World’s Fastest Virtual Supercomputer

The Cloud!!!!

Amazon recently built the world’s fastest supercomputer – of the virtual variety. At a measly 240 Trillion calculations per second (!), it is only the 42nd fastest computer in the world but it is all yours for less than $1300 per hour to use.

We will never use it but wouldn’t it be cool to have this option if we want to use one?

  1. Pretty insightful submit. Never thought that it was this simple after all. I had spent a beneficial deal of my time looking for someone to explain this topic clearly and you’re the only one that ever did that. Kudos to you! Keep it up
