Brookhaven Unveiling World's Fastest Supercomputer for General Use

IT professionals will be looking with longing to Long Island this Friday, June 15, when DOE's Brookhaven National Laboratory holds a ceremony celebrating the installation of New York Blue, a 100-teraflop supercomputer that is the world's fastest for general use. Brookhaven's June 11 invitation said the machine's purchase was supported by $26 million in funding from New York State.

The supercomputer will be the centerpiece of the New York Center for Computational Sciences, a cooperative effort between Brookhaven and Stony Brook University that will involve universities throughout the state. The machine is about 10,000 times faster than a personal computer.

Brookhaven also announced that Doon Gibbs has been named its deputy director for Science and Technology, effective June 11. A member of the lab's staff since 1983, Gibbs had been associate laboratory director for Basic Energy Sciences since 2002. Brookhaven has about 2,600 employees and an annual budget of $492 million. Gibbs holds a B.S. in physics and mathematics from the University of Utah and an M.S. and Ph.D. in physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He has been instrumental in overseeing the design and construction of Brookhaven’s Center for Functional Nanomaterials for the past five years, according to the lab.
