Houston — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; BP opened a new computing center home to what the oil giant calls the world’s largest supercomputer for commercial research, part of BP’s efforts to more quickly analyze scans of underground rocks.
The processing power at the Houston facility — part of BP’s five-year, $100 million investment in computing — was developed with help from HP and Intel.
