Linux now powers 100% of the world’s 500 fastest supercomputers.

‘The 500 most powerful supercomputers all use Linux.’

That’s according to the latest stats out from supercomputer hawks TOP500 , who post a biannual list of the world’s most powerful commercially available computer systems.

Linux has long dominated the TOP500 list , powering the majority of the machines that make it. At last count, back in June, 99.6% (or 498) of the top 500 fastest supercomputers ran Linux,

But as of November 2017 that figure stands at a full 100%: the 500 most powerful supercomputers in the world now use Linux.

The majority of these machines aren’t running your average off-the-torrent desktop distribution, but a bespoke, highly customised, and specialised version of Linux. But a minority do run something more familiar:

  • 5 supercomputers run Ubuntu
  • 20 supercomputers run some form of RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)
  • 109 supercomputers run t he RedHat affiliated CentOS

The world’s (current) fastest supercomputer is China’s Sunway TaihuLight , which is powered by a colossal 650,000+ CPUs. This beast of a machine, which runs a customised version of Linux called ‘Sunway RaiseOS’, has a processing speed of 93 petaflops — or the equivalent power of 2 million laptops every second .

The machine is expected to become 33% faster in the next few years, boosting its processing prowess to over 120 petaflops.

Finally — a machine capable of running more than one Electron app at a time! ;)
