JAGUAR Data:
* Performance: 1.759 petaflops (theoretical maximum: 2.33 petaflops)
* Processors: 37,376 six-core AMD Opteron 2.6 GHz
* Processor cores: 224,256
* Total RAM: 300 terabyte
* Total disc space: 10 petabyte
* System type: Cray XT5
* Operating system: Cray custom version of SUSE Linux
One petaflops is the equivalent of one thousand trillion operations per second, which means the Jaguar is capable of a theoretical maximum performance of 2,330,000,000,000,000 operations per second.
