When will we have a Exascale supercomputer?

There is a global race to build the first supercomputer in the world capable of performing 1 million trillion operations per second (1 ExaFlops in our jargon!). Extrapolating the performance delivered by TOP500 list suggests that an Exascale system (a system that can reach 1 ExaFlops) could be built by 2018-2019.
