With the delivery of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) first exascale system, Frontier, in 2022, and the upcoming deployment of Aurora and El Capitan systems by next year, researchers will have the most sophisticated computational tools at their disposal to conduct groundbreaking research.

Exascale machines can perform more than a billion billion calculations per second, or 1018, which helped inspire a day of celebration on October 18, or 10/18.

Exascale Day honors scientists and researchers who use advanced computing to make breakthrough discoveries in medicine, materials sciences, energy, and beyond with the help of the fastest supercomputers in the world. It is also a day to celebrate the impact of high-performance computing at all levels.
