CUG’14 Just Around the Corner

CUG_BlogAd

It’s time again for the annual Cray User Group meeting. This year’s event will be hosted by the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) in the picturesque town of Lugano, Switzerland. From May 4-8 Cray users and system owners from around the world will congregate to collaborate and share their experiences. A contingent of Cray employees will join them to hear straight from the customer and to present tutorials and technical papers. While the conference will include several interesting networking events in beautiful venues, this is first and foremost a technical conference whose goal is to facilitate collaboration and information exchange in the Cray user community. This annual conference gives CUG members the opportunity to share … [Read more...]

Discussions at the Rice Conference Highlight Role of HPC Systems in Oil & Gas

Oil and gas event

I just came back from the annual Oil and Gas High Performance Computing (HPC) Workshop hosted by Rice University and can say the event has grown rapidly to where it has become a broad investigation of the use and role of HPC in the Oil & Gas segment. In terms of attendance, the conference impressed with more than 300 registrants. For the first time, it also featured “Lightning Talks”; those rapid-fire, few slides, special effects, big font size presentations so beloved by the West Coast/Silicon Valley computer industry. (Perhaps next year, we’ll see some VCs showing up? The HPC industry in Oil & Gas is certainly big enough and innovating dramatically enough to warrant their presence). At such events, it’s customary … [Read more...]

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...]

It’s A Wrap

SC13 026_small

And another successful SC conference comes to a close. We had a fabulous week at SC13 with a busy booth and even busier briefing rooms. It all started off with a bang on Monday night with the unveiling of our new booth where we served up free Colorado microbrews and celebrated another year of new faces, new products, and new customers. Visitors to our exhibit were met with more racks of computing, storage, and analytics products than ever before. This year, Cray and three of our staff members were recognized in a special silver anniversary ceremony recognizing companies and individuals who have participated in all 25 annual SC conferences. Also in honor of this special anniversary we displayed an historic Cray-1 module and a life-size … [Read more...]

What’s Around the Corner?

SC13 logo_ blue

It starts with the excitement and anticipation. Then it’s down to business — making lists, counting days, packing and shipping, and maybe just a little bit of stress. No, I’m not talking about getting ready for the holidays. I’m talking about SC13! We’re less than one week away from the biggest event of the year for Cray. The annual supercomputing conference (SC) will kick off on November 17 in Denver, Colorado. SC brings together some of the best minds in the world to both share and hear about our rapidly changing industry. It’s also a week where we celebrate noteworthy achievements — from scientific breakthroughs to new and innovative products that will ultimately turn great ideas into brilliant discoveries. This year … [Read more...]
