Another Exciting Year

Pete's Blog_holiday 2013

As we near the end of 2013, Cray is closing out one of the most transformative years in our long and proud history. In just this year alone, we successfully integrated two strategic acquisitions, won a number of large supercomputing contracts at customer sites around the world, significantly expanded our business and portfolio of solutions, continued to build the financial strength of the company, and added a host of highly-talented individuals to our team. It’s been quite a year! Since the early days of our company, starting with our iconic founder Seymour Cray, we have been a trusted partner to customers around the world with a commitment to do two things really well:  be focused on their success and help them to see around the next … [Read more...]

Cray’s Past Instrumental in Guiding its Future

Cray-1

This past weekend, we used the occasion of Mr. Seymour Cray’s birthday to pay tribute to the visionary who started it all and is affectionately known as the “Father of Supercomputing.”  With a childhood interest in electronics and electrical devices, he began an early quest to create some of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, and there is no doubt he has shaped and influenced today’s HPC industry. As a company, Cray was among the early information technology giants to emerge in the United States and has long striven to provide leadership in the sector. History often shapes the present and guides the future, and this is evident in Cray's direction. Our longstanding place in the HPC sector has given us the experience and … [Read more...]

Open & Trusted Storage Solutions for Cluster Systems

CC3

I’ve worked in the data management and storage business since 1999.  One of the things that struck me early on was how supply-side and proprietary the industry was.  Storage vendors often pushed extraneous hardware or over-provisioned configurations.  Systems were proprietary and didn’t interop.   You could not replicate data from vendor A’s system to vendor B’s system and the worst part was that customers often were burdened carrying the tab for years, integrating and making due with supply-side configurations. For example, one customer I worked with described how a storage vendor dropped the gear off at the loading dock and walked away.  The customer was stuck figuring out how to put the pieces together. In HPC, … [Read more...]
