The powerful, high-performance system, is equivalent to the work of more than 110,000 personal computers, designed to help researchers and industrial institutions investigate and solve some of the world’s most daunting scientific challenges.

The revolutionary new form of hot-water cooling technology, invented by IBM, allows the system to be 10 times more compact, improves its performance and consumes 40 percent less energy than an air-cooled computer.
