Not intended THIS way, I think. However, think of this. If they have a fire bust out ...wouldn't the fire dept like to know the basic layout of the
place before they kick doors to get a surprise by what they find on the other side? I think that is all this is by the 'Unclassified' stamps on the
originals. It leads me to believe there IS a classified set and likely a FAR more interesting one.
Also... This facility was said to be using over
1.5 Million gallons of water PER day.. EACH
day. I see absolutely nothing on those blueprints to even channel and handle that volume in a constant in/out. Anyone else? There are volumes those
aren't showing. There MUST be...because this doesn't show anything to explain the statistics of the place.
That quote of 1.5 million gallons per day gives a CLUE as to the TYPE of processing power
being used that NEEDS FAST heat removal....I suspect Silicon-on-Sapphire or Silicon-on-Diamond
CPU or GPU substrates that are probably IBM PowerPC base CPU architectures or are
NVIDIA Kepler or AMD Radeon GPU stream processor based systems that have been
PUSHED to between 10 Gigahertz all the way up to 100 Gigahertz clock speeds.
Since the heat by such CPU or GPU architectures would be enormous, 1.5 million gallons a day
would not be out of line for that type of computing system. Also, the high budget indicates to me they
are using SSD (Solid State Drives) as storage rather than multi-terabyte platter-based hard disks.
Their backup systems or offline storage will LIKELY be Exabyte tape drives for cost reasons.
This system is probably DIVIDED INTO FOUR separate processing systems
EACH in the 100 Petaflop range which makes them 4 to 5 times more powerful
any ANY other supercomputer on the planet. This means each computer is
likely tasked for specialized work such as imaging or machine vision and
optical character recognition, one for multi-language and multi-person
audio-to-text translation, one for video stream analysis and one for
intelligence activities scenario modeling which is like a weather
forecast for the intelligence community.
i.s. What's going to happen when, where and how?
There will also be workstation-based image analysis and display systems
which will show the bigger picture and allow intelligence experts to make
educated guesses as to what needs to be acted upon on a tactical basis
once the data from the MAJOR computing systems has been massaged
and narrowed down to actionable items.
Fuzzy-logic inference engines, neural net-based data mining,
specialty imaging expert systems and TRULY MASSIVE
Oracle and/or IBM DB2 database engines for advanced
SQL or 4th generation natural language searches
and data correlation will be the rule for this facility!
