IBM logoThe top 20 greenest supercomputers are all built on IBM technology, and 39 of the top 50 use IBM technology as well.

Turek told me that’s no accident, and that it’s a result of decisions that IBM made back in 1999, when it had to make basic decisions about its next generation of supercomputers. The company was quite prescient about projecting the current energy crunch, and so decided that it would build its new supercomputers on an architecture that would be as energy-efficient as possible.
