Cray unveils new branch of Cray XC30 product line

The new Cray XC30-AC is putting HPC capabilities into the hands of the technical enterprise segment.

Many businesses are facing a growing need to complete data-intensive research and simulations to support innovation. However, companies in the technical enterprise range rarely have the funds needed to invest in a high-end HPC data center, supercomputer and storage solution.

Friedlander’s 79 framed photographs are presented in a circular format in one room, each frame pressed against the … [Read more...]
