Exa Scale Computing: The Engine of Discovery
This paper presents a detailed information about one of the levels of High Performance Computing namely Exascale computing. Computer architectures are expected to change to extend their support to Exa-scale computing in the near future. Exascale computing will have a profound impact on everyday life in the coming decades. It originated from petascale computing. It is simply considered as a transformation of petascale computing. One exaflop equals 1000 petaflops(1018flops per second)which is also known as a quintillion. Exascale computing is a milestone in the history of high performance computing.
