A supercomputer that can process tsunami of data!
Washington: Gordon, a cutting edge supercomputer, can process a tsunami of digital information, besides tackling new challenges in data storage and massive datasets.



"Gordon is a supercomputer that will do for scientific data analysis what Google does for web search," said Michael Norman, director of San Diego Supercomputer Centre (SDSC), University of California, which is designing and developing the system.
Gordon will have 250 trillion bytes of flash memory. It will be capable of handling massive databases while providing up to 100 times faster speed when compared to hard drive disk systems for some queries, according to a California statement.



"Digital data is advancing at least as fast, and probably faster, than Moore`s Law," said Michael Norman, director of SDSC.



Moore`s Law refers to the computing belief that the number of transistors which can be placed cheaply on an integrated circuit doubles approximately every 18 months.
This makes Gordon ideal for data mining and data exploration, where researchers have to churn through tremendous amounts of data just to find a small amount of valuable information, not unlike a web search.



These findings will be presented at the 3rd Annual La Jolla Research & Innovation Summit this week.
