Depart짯ment of Defen짯se Sel짯ects Cray CS500 Sys짯tems For New High-Per짯for짯mance Com짯pu짯ting Capa짯bi짯li짯ties At Army Rese짯arch Cen짯ters
SEATTLE, Aug. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Glo짯bal super짯com짯pu짯ter lea짯der Cray Inc.(Nasdaq:CRAY) today announ짯ced that the U.S. Depart짯ment of Defen짯se (DOD) has sel짯ec짯ted two Cray CS500꽓  sys짯tems for its High Per짯for짯mance Com짯pu짯ting Moder짯niza짯ti짯on Pro짯gram (HPCMP) annu짯al tech짯no짯lo짯gy pro짯cu짯re짯ment known as TI-18. The Army Rese짯arch Lab (ARL) and the U.S. Army Engi짯nee짯ring and Rese짯arch Deve짯lo짯p짯ment Cen짯ter (ERDC) will each deploy a Cray CS500 to help ser짯ve the U.S. through acce짯le짯ra짯ted rese짯arch in sci짯ence and tech짯no짯lo짯gy. The two con짯tracts are valued at more than $46M and the CS500 sys짯tems are expec짯ted to be deli짯ver짯ed to ARL and ERDC in the fourth quar짯ter of 2019.

We셱e proud to con짯ti짯nue to sup짯port the DOD and its advan짯ced use of high-per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯ting in pro짯vi짯ding ARL and ERDC new sys짯tems for their rese짯arch pro짯grams, said Peter Unga짯ro, CEO at Cray. 쏻e셱e loo짯king for짯ward to con짯tin짯ued col짯la짯bo짯ra짯ti짯on with the DOD in lever짯aging the capa짯bi짯li짯ties of the짯se new sys짯tems to achie짯ve their important mis짯si짯on objectives.

Cray has a long histo짯ry of deli짯ve짯ring high-per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯ting tech짯no짯lo짯gies to ARL and ERDC and con짯ti짯nues to play a vital role in hel짯ping the orga짯niza짯ti짯ons deli짯ver on their mis짯si짯ons to ensu짯re the U.S. remains a lea짯der in sci짯ence. Both orga짯niza짯ti짯ons CS500 sys짯tems will be equip짯ped with 2nd Gen AMD EPYC꽓 pro짯ces짯sors and NVIDIA Ten짯sor Core GPUs, and will pro짯vi짯de access to high-per짯for짯mance capa짯bi짯li짯ties and resour짯ces that make it pos짯si짯ble for rese짯ar짯chers, sci짯en짯tists and engi짯neers across the Depart짯ment of Defen짯se to bet짯ter under짯stand insights and enable new dis짯co짯veries across diver짯se rese짯arch disci짯pli짯nes to address the Department셲 most chal짯len짯ging problems.

We are tru짯ly proud to part짯ner with Cray to crea짯te the world셲 most powerful super짯com짯pu짯ting plat짯forms. To be sel짯ec짯ted to help acce짯le짯ra짯te sci짯en짯ti짯fic rese짯arch and dis짯co짯very is a tes짯ta짯ment to our com짯mit짯ment to dat짯a짯cen짯ter inno짯va짯ti짯on, said For짯rest Nor짯rod, seni짯or vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, Dat짯a짯cen짯ter and Embedded Solu짯ti짯ons Busi짯ness Group, AMD. 쏝y lever짯aging breakth짯rough CPU per짯for짯mance and robust fea짯ture set of the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors with Cray CS500 super짯com짯pu짯ters, the DOD has a tre짯men짯dous oppor짯tu짯ni짯ty to grow its com짯pu짯ting capa짯bi짯li짯ties and deli짯ver on its missions.
