ABSTRACT
Energy-efficient (green) supercomputing has traditionally been viewed as pass?, even to the point of public ridicule. But today, it's finally coming into vogue. This article describes the authors' view of this evolution.
INDEX TERMS
Green supercomputing, energy efficiency, supercomputing, energy-efficient supercomputing, green computing, HEC, large-scale data center computing, and Green Destiny.
