‘Piz Dora’ Piggybacks Swiss Supercomputer ‘Piz Daint’

Dec 11, 2014 |

Already the world’s most energy-efficient petascale supercomputer, “Piz Daint” – the Cray XC30 system installed at the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) – is even more powerful, thanks to multicore Cray XC40 extension called “Piz Dora.” Following a local naming convention, the monikers were inspired by mountains of the Swiss Ortler Alps with Piz Daint as the “inner Read more…

Air Force Stocks Its Supercomputing Arsenal

Oct 8, 2014 |

The Air Force Research Laboratory recently welcomed its newest supercomputer, a 1.28 petaflops Cray XC30 machine dubbed “Lightning,” nearly doubling its supercomputing power. Funded through the Department of Defense’s High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP), the $20.8 million supercomputer will push the boundaries on hypersonic flight, rocket propulsion and space situational awareness. Lightning joins “Spirit,” a Read more…

Cray Goes Back to the Future for Weather Forecasting

Feb 16, 2014 |

Weather forecasting has come a long way since June of 1977, when the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) first contracted Cray to deliver one of its early Cray-1A systems across the pond. This was the first time a Cray found its way to the old country—an installation that set the stage for Read more…

Supercomputers: Still the King of the HPC Hill

Jun 17, 2013 |

The advent of low-power mobile processors and cloud delivery models is changing the economics of computing. But just as an economy car is good at different things than a full size truck, an HPC workload still has certain computing demands that neither the fastest smartphone nor the most elastic cloud cluster can fulfill.
