The first fully functional version of CyberShake ran on 800 processors on NCSA’s Mercury in 2008. Six years and a few versions later, the SCEC team scaled up the code to run on 295,040 processors on Blue Waters in early 2014. The net effect was that the simulations ran about 200 times faster and created more than 600 times the data.

Selected appearances of Blue Waters in the media are presented.
