Titan supercomputer

Titan is the name given to a supercomputer developed at the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. The supercomputer is capable of 20 petaflops, which is 20,000 trillion calculations per second. It is more than 10 times faster than its predecessor called Jaguar, which was deployed in 2009 and was considered the world's fastest supercomputer in June 2010.

According to Datamation.com, It would take 60,000 years for 1,000 people working at a rate of one calculation per second to complete the number of calculations that Titan can process in a single second.
