With the increase in the demand of technology, the demand of the computers and their high speed performances are also greatly enhanced. So is there the need of the supercomputers which are the high speed computers that are usually used by the large organizations and companies. Supercomputers play an integral part in the field of sciences and indirectly in every field of life. So besides of their big and enormous sizes, supercomputers are needed in almost all the multi- national companies to get their job done within the high speed and in lesser time.
Here is the list of top 10 fastest supercomputers in the world and in the year of 2015:

One of the fastest and reliable supercomputers in the world. It is one of the largest and most capable computational resources that is the technology of IBM BlueGene and are available in United States for industrial collaborators. This supercomputer is housed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and is partially open to public for the business and research purposes.
It is another fastest supercomputer of the world that is the only Europe based computer and was built by IBM. The 9th fastest supercomputer that is Juqueen, is housed at Forschungszentrum Juelich in Germany, which is a research center simulated on the areas of biology to energy and climate research.
One of the most powerful and significant currently available supercomputer that is open for research in United States. The Stampede is the Dell PowerEdge C8220 system which is based on powerful desktop computers. It is housed at Texas Advanced Computing Center.
7. Shaheen II
It is the largest and the most powerful supercomputer in the Middle East and is named after Peregrine Falcon. It is the newest supercomputer on this top 10 list and achieved this rank because of its high speed computing performance. The Shaheen II is housed at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology north of Jeddah and supports the scientific and academic research at that university.
6. Piz Daint
The one of the fastest supercomputers of Europe is the Piz Daint that is named after the nearby Alpine peak in Switzerland. The Piz Daint supercomputer is installed at Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) in Lugano, Switzerland and is the flagship for national HPC service.
As one of the fastest and powerful supercomputer in the world, Mira is standing at the 5th rank among the most powerful supercomputers in the world for the year of 2015. It is the third most powerful supercomputer in United States and is housed The Argonne National Laboratory which is near Chicago.
4. K Computer
The K computer is one the long standing member of the top list of most powerful supercomputers of the world because of its high speed computing performance. It is installed at Japan’s Advanced Institute for Computational Science and it is used for weather simulations, forecasting, and different research on pharmacy, space science and many other scientific related purposes.
another most powerful supercomputer of the world is the Sequoia that is also housed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory alongside with the Vulcan. It is also used for the studies of climate, astronomy and energy application areas in United States.
The second most powerful supercomputer of the world is Titan that is also the masterpiece of United States. It is housed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory at America which is used for the study of materials science, fuel combustion, chemistry simulations and meteorology.
The most powerful supercomputer on the list among the world is Tianhe-2. It is housed at the Chinese National University of Defense Technology. It is on the top for the fifth straight time. It is operated by the Chinese government and is supposed to do the things what the government wants.
