<blockquote>'Optalysys says that its technology is already at NASA Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 4, meaning it’s ready for full-scale testing in a laboratory environment. By January 2015, Optalysys says it will have a 340-gigaflop prototype ready to go. By 2017, the company wants to have two commercial systems in place: A big data analysis system that will add 1.32 petaflops of grunt to an existing, conventional supercomputer — and a standalone Optical Solver supercomputer, which will start at 9 petaflops. Optalysys thinks its Optical Solver could scale up to 17.1 exaflops by 2020. This seems like a very bold statement for an entirely novel and untested method of computing..'
