Supercomputers

As the name suggests, a supercomputer is a machine with massive computing power, capable of working with huge amounts of data and performing incredibly complex computations. Chinese tech company Lenovo is the vendor with the highest market share among the most powerful supercomputers in the world, with other China-based brands such as Inspur and Sugon serving as its nearest competitors in the market. All of the 500 most powerful supercomputers in the world use different operating systems based on the same open-source Linux kernel.
