Combined Company Will Drive Next Generation of High Performance Computing

San Jose, Calif., and Seat짯tle, Wash., May 17, 2019  Hew짯lett Packard Enter짯pri짯se (NYSE:HPE) and Cray Inc. (Nasdaq: CRAY), a glo짯bal super짯com짯pu짯ter lea짯der, today announ짯ced that the com짯pa짯nies have ente짯red into a defi짯ni짯ti짯ve agree짯ment under which HPE will acqui짯re Cray for $35.00 per share in cash, in a tran짯sac짯tion valued at appro짯xi짯m짯ate짯ly $1.3 bil짯li짯on, net of cash.

Ans짯wers to some of society셲 most pres짯sing chal짯lenges are buried in mas짯si짯ve amounts of data, said Anto짯nio Neri, Pre짯si짯dent and CEO, HPE. 쏰nly by pro짯ces짯sing and ana짯ly짯zing this data will we be able to unlock the ans짯wers to cri짯ti짯cal chal짯lenges across medi짯ci짯ne, cli짯ma짯te chan짯ge, space and more. Cray is a glo짯bal tech짯no짯lo짯gy lea짯der in super짯com짯pu짯ting and shares our deep com짯mit짯ment to inno짯va짯ti짯on. By com짯bi짯ning our world-class teams and tech짯no짯lo짯gy, we will have the oppor짯tu짯ni짯ty to dri짯ve the next gene짯ra짯ti짯on of high per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯ting and play an important part in advan짯cing the way peo짯p짯le live and work.


The Explosion of Data is Driving Strong HPC Growth

The explo짯si짯on of data from arti짯fi짯ci짯al intel짯li짯gence, machi짯ne lear짯ning, and big data ana짯ly짯tics and evol짯ving cus짯to짯mer needs for data-inten짯si짯ve workloads are dri짯ving a signi짯fi짯cant expan짯si짯on in HPC.

Over the next three years the HPC seg짯ment of the mar짯ket and asso짯cia짯ted sto짯rage and ser짯vices is expec짯ted to grow from appro짯xi짯m짯ate짯ly $28 bil짯li짯on in 2018 to appro짯xi짯m짯ate짯ly $35 bil짯li짯on in 2021, a com짯pound annu짯al growth rate of appro짯xi짯m짯ate짯ly 9 per짯cent. Exas짯ca짯le is a gro짯wing seg짯ment of over짯all HPC oppor짯tu짯ni짯ties and more than $4 bil짯li짯on of Exas짯ca짯le oppor짯tu짯ni짯ties are expec짯ted to be award짯ed over the next five years.

Addres짯sing com짯plex chal짯lenges and advan짯cing cri짯ti짯cal aca짯de짯mic rese짯arch, inclu짯ding pre짯dic짯ting future wea짯ther pat짯terns, deli짯ve짯ring breakth짯rough medi짯cal dis짯co짯veries, and pre짯ven짯ting cyber-attacks, requi짯res signi짯fi짯cant com짯pu짯ta짯tio짯nal capa짯bi짯li짯ties, up to and through Exas짯ca짯le level archi짯tec짯tu짯re. Exas짯ca짯le capa짯ble sys짯tems enable solu짯ti짯ons to the짯se pro짯blems with much grea짯ter pre짯cis짯i짯on and insight.

This is an ama짯zing oppor짯tu짯ni짯ty to bring tog짯e짯ther Cray셲 lea짯ding-edge tech짯no짯lo짯gy and HPE셲 wide reach and deep pro짯duct port짯fo짯lio, pro짯vi짯ding cus짯to짯mers of all sizes with inte짯gra짯ted solu짯ti짯ons and uni짯que super짯com짯pu짯ting tech짯no짯lo짯gy to address the full spec짯trum of their data-inten짯si짯ve needs, said Peter Unga짯ro, Pre짯si짯dent and CEO of Cray. HPE and Cray share a com짯mit짯ment to cus짯to짯mer-cen짯tric inno짯va짯ti짯on and a visi짯on to crea짯te the glo짯bal lea짯der for the future of high per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯ting and AI. On behalf of the Cray Board of Direc짯tors, we are plea짯sed to have rea짯ched an agree짯ment that we belie짯ve maxi짯mi짯zes value and are exci짯ted for the oppor짯tu짯ni짯ties that this uni짯que com짯bi짯na짯ti짯on will crea짯te for both our employees and our customers.


Cray is a Leading Innovator in Supercomputer Solutions

Cray is the pre짯mier pro짯vi짯der of high-end super짯com짯pu짯ting solu짯ti짯ons that address cus짯to짯mers most chal짯len짯ging, data-inten짯si짯ve workloads for making cri짯ti짯cal decis짯i짯ons. Cray has a lea짯der짯ship posi짯ti짯on in the top 100 super짯com짯pu짯ter instal짯la짯ti짯ons around the glo짯be. With a histo짯ry tying back to Cray Rese짯arch, which was foun짯ded in 1972, Cray is head짯quar짯te짯red in Seat짯tle, Washing짯ton, with US-based manu짯fac짯tu짯ring, and appro짯xi짯m짯ate짯ly 1,300 employees world짯wi짯de. The com짯pa짯ny deli짯ver짯ed reve짯nue of $456 mil짯li짯on in its most recent fis짯cal year, up 16 per짯cent year over year.

Cray셲 super짯com짯pu짯ting sys짯tems, deli짯ver짯ed through their cur짯rent gene짯ra짯ti짯on XC and CS plat짯forms, and next-gene짯ra짯ti짯on Shas짯ta series plat짯form, have the abili짯ty to hand짯le mas짯si짯ve data sets, con짯ver짯ged mode짯ling, simu짯la짯ti짯on, AI, and ana짯ly짯tics workloads. In addi짯ti짯on to super짯com짯pu짯ters, they offer high-per짯for짯mance sto짯rage, low-laten짯cy high per짯for짯mance HPC inter짯con짯nects, a full HPC sys짯tem soft짯ware stack and pro짯gramming envi짯ron짯ment, data ana짯ly짯tics, and AI solu짯ti짯ons all curr짯ent짯ly deli짯ver짯ed through inte짯gra짯ted systems.

Cray recent짯ly announ짯ced an Exas짯ca짯le super짯com짯pu짯ter con짯tract for over $600 mil짯li짯on for the U.S. Depart짯ment of Energy셲 Oak Ridge Natio짯nal Labo짯ra짯to짯ry. The sys짯tem, which is tar짯ge짯ted to be the world셲 fas짯test sys짯tem, will enable ground짯brea짯king rese짯arch and AI at unpre짯ce짯den짯ted sca짯le, using Cray셲 new Shas짯ta sys짯tem archi짯tec짯tu짯re and Slingshot inter짯con짯nect. The com짯pa짯ny was also part of an award with Intel for the first U.S. Exas짯ca짯le con짯tract from the U.S. Depart짯ment of Energy셲 Argon짯ne Natio짯nal Labo짯ra짯to짯ry, with Cray셲 por짯ti짯on of the con짯tract valued at over $100 million.


Cray Strengthens and Expands HPE셲 High Performance Computing Portfolio

High per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯ting is a key com짯po짯nent of HPE셲 visi짯on and growth stra짯tegy and the com짯pa짯ny curr짯ent짯ly offers world-class HPC solu짯ti짯ons, inclu짯ding HPE Apol짯lo and SGI, to cus짯to짯mers world짯wi짯de. This port짯fo짯lio will be fur짯ther streng짯the짯ned by lever짯aging Cray셲 foun짯da짯tio짯nal tech짯no짯lo짯gies and adding com짯ple짯men짯ta짯ry solu짯ti짯ons. The com짯bi짯ned com짯pa짯ny will also reach a broa짯der set of end mar짯kets, offe짯ring enter짯pri짯se, aca짯de짯mic and govern짯ment cus짯to짯mers a broad ran짯ge of solu짯ti짯ons and deep exper짯ti짯se to sol짯ve their most com짯plex pro짯blems. Tog짯e짯ther, HPE and Cray will have enhan짯ced oppor짯tu짯ni짯ties for growth and the inte짯gra짯ted plat짯form, sca짯le and resour짯ces to lead the Exas짯ca짯le era of high per짯for짯mance computing.

The com짯bi짯na짯ti짯on of HPE and Cray is expec짯ted to deli짯ver signi짯fi짯cant cus짯to짯mer bene짯fits including:

  • Future HPC-as-a-Ser짯vice and AI / ML ana짯ly짯tics through HPE GreenLake
  • A com짯pre짯hen짯si짯ve end-to-end port짯fo짯lio of HPC infra짯struc짯tu짯re com짯pu짯te, high-per짯for짯mance sto짯rage, sys짯tem inter짯con짯nects, soft짯ware and ser짯vices sup짯ple짯men짯ting exis짯ting HPE capa짯bi짯li짯ties to address the full spec짯trum of cus짯to짯mers data-inten짯si짯ve needs

  • Enhan짯ced sup짯p짯ly chain capa짯bi짯li짯ties lever짯aging US-based manufacturing


Signi짯fi짯cant Eco짯no짯mic Upsi짯de Expec짯ted to be Rea짯li짯zed from the Combination

Brin짯ging tog짯e짯ther HPE and Cray enables an enhan짯ced finan짯cial pro짯fi짯le for the com짯bi짯ned com짯pa짯ny that includes seve짯ral reve짯nue growth oppor짯tu짯ni짯ties and cost synergies.

The com짯pa짯nies expect the com짯bi짯na짯ti짯on to dri짯ve signi짯fi짯cant reve짯nue growth oppor짯tu짯ni짯ties by:

  • Capi짯ta짯li짯zing on the gro짯wing HPC seg짯ment of the mar짯ket and Exas짯ca짯le opportunities
  • Enhan짯cing HPE셲 cus짯to짯mer base with a com짯ple짯men짯ta짯ry foot짯print in fede짯ral busi짯ness and aca짯de짯mia and the company셲 abili짯ty to acce짯le짯ra짯te com짯mer짯cial super짯com짯pu짯ting adoption
  • Intro짯du짯cing new offe짯rings in AI / ML and HPC-as-a-ser짯vice with HPE GreenLake

We also expect to deli짯ver signi짯fi짯cant cost syn짯er짯gies through effi짯ci짯en짯ci짯es and by lever짯aging pro짯prie짯ta짯ry Cray tech짯no짯lo짯gy, like the Slingshot inter짯con짯nect, to lower cos짯ts and impro짯ve pro짯duct performance.
