Zero to an ExaFLOP in Under a Second

In this sponsored post, Matthew Ziegler at Lenovo discusses today’s metric for raw speed of compute. Much like racing cars, servers do “time trials” to gauge their performance relative to a given workload.  There are more Spec or Web benchmarks out there for servers than there are racetracks and drag strips.  Perhaps the most important measure is the raw calculating throughput that a system delivers: FLOPS, or Floating-Point Operations Per Second.
