It's got a nice rack.
The IBM Sequoia BlueGene/Q supercomputer, installed at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, runs 16.32 petaflops, using 1.6 million compute cores in 96 racks, each roughly the size of a large refrigerator, Parris said.

To grasp how fast that is, he said, "If you have to understand a drug interaction on the heart, on a one-petaflop computer it would take two years for one simulation; for a 10-petaflop it would drop to two days. A 16-petaflop can do it now in a few hours."
By comparison, the second-ranked computer on the list, Fujitsu's "K Computer" at the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science in Kobe, Japan, runs at 10.51 petaflops, and No. 3, the Mira supercomputer--another IBM BlueGene/Q system, located at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois--runs at 8.15 petaflops.
