Computer Core Concept

This is only a conceptual vision of what a primary Tollana Computer Core will be like. Not all technologies described here are currently available, and some technologies mentioned may be out of date with the rest of the technologies described.
The Tollana Computer Core is classified as B2 technology; certain specifications of this technologies architecture is classified as 'restricted' to Administrative Command personnel. This technology is readily available to the citizens of the Colonial Alliance.
As time goes on, there will be updates to this page, given a more detailed description of the Tollana Computer Core.
The Tollana Computer Core will be the fastest computer on Earth with the processing power exceeding 184,000 times faster than the fastest super computer currently in existence. The Processing Core will house well over 150,994,944 Octal-Core Intel Beckton processors (current tech) given it an approximate processing power of about 196 exoFLOPS
The Tollana Computer Core will also house the largest data storage library on Earth with a storage capacity of over 1,500,000 terabytes. The Storage Core will consist of over 1,700,000 - 750GB hard drives (current tech) or holographic data storage device. The Storage Core should easily have the capacity to store all the information from all the libraries in the world, plus every document, book, movie, piece of art, and song, with plenty of room to spare.
The base hardware will be cross-generational including the processors, and they will be hot swappable as well. Both the hardware and software will hopefully be 1024-bit, and use a ternary computer language.
Data will be transmitted using a Unified Data Transmission and Reception Protocol. The UDTRP will allow for the main computer core to share data between the network and any Alliance computing device.
Computing devices will be a hybrid amalgam of hardware-based operating systems and network/software-based operating systems.
The network backbone (Optical Data Network or ODN) will consist of at least 250,000,000 ultra-high speed bi-directional digital fiber optic (data channels) given an overall bandwidth capacity of around 375 exabytes per second.
All secured files stored in the computer core will be encrypted with a 4MB encryption key. Certain data files still will require a security clearance, biometric data, authentication code, etc. Personal encrypted files will require an authentication code and biometric data.
