Leaks shed light on how NSA may use supercomputers, gigantic hard drives.
Much as the $1.5 billion Utah building's opaque exterior walls and dark windows obscure its contents, the powerful National Security Agency puts vast resources into hiding the gargantuan trove of secret intelligence and supercomputers to be stored inside.
The NSA will use the Cray XC30 series of high-capacity computers to crunch at least some of its data, according to documents from several of the agency's private contractors. It's unclear, though, if they will be deployed at Bluffdale or elsewhere on the NSA's network, possible at computing centers at Fort Meade.
Under a program nicknamed "Cascade," the Department of Defense has helped finance development of the XC30 series, which industry officials say can run up to 1 million Intel Xenon core processors simultaneously, enabling speeds of up to 100 petaflops. One petaflop is about one thousand trillion calculations per second.
I actually bet this site is for the Mormon genealogy research and records. One would hope were getting better spy facilities than the Communist Chinese (or Cubans for that matter) for all the money we put into it, and the technology that the U.S. has.
This Is Just What They Have Above Ground, Nothing Is Said Or Revealed What They Have Underground.
Having Worked For A U.S. Federal Govt. Facility In Aurora, Illinois, Under The Auspices Of The FAA & U.S. Dept. Of Transportation In The Mid-To-Late 1970s (Jimmy Carter Being President) I Can Say There DEFINITELY Are Underground Facilities In ALL U.S. Federal Govt. Spy Agencies & Networks.
While In The Aurora Facility--The Air Route Traffic Control Center Which Monitors Air Traffic Between Chicago's O'hare Airport & Denver Colorado's Airport--I Had Access To The Sub-levels Via My Security Clearance (Being Administered A Loyalty & Secrecy Oath Upon Hire As A Civilian Employee With The U.S. Govt.).
While Underground, I Saw Rows & Rows Of Huge Mainframe Computers, That Looked Like Public Library Shelves, Which Stored ALL Data On EVERY Airplane Flight That Has EVER Flown From Chicago To Denver.
This Was Back Over 35 Yrs. Ago--Before Cell Phones & P.C.s.
Can You Imagine What Info & Intel The NSA Spies Has On EVERY U.S. & "GLOBAL" CITIZEN TODAY ?
Not Only On-In Their ABOVE-GROUND COMPUTERS--
BUT, ALSO IN THEIR UNDER-GROUND COMPUTERS !
THE ALL SEEING EYES & EARS OF NSA, NATIONAL [SATANIC] AGENCY,
IS UPON US:
**"AS IS THEIR COMING RIGHT-HAND & FOREHEAD "MARK" !
