Tianhe-1 has not been damaged but some of its operations were shutdown as a precaution, officials said. Tianhe-1 provides data services to more than 300 organisations across China, including several universities and banks.

It was developed by the Changsha-based National University of Defense Technology in 2009, and China thus became the world’s second country capable of developing petaflop supercomputers after the United States.
