Cray To Establish Supercomputing Center At Oak Ridge Lab

Supercomputer company Cray has said it plans to establish a supercomputing center of excellence at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, supporting Energy's plans to build the world's most-powerful supercomputer for open research there.

MANHASSET, N.Y. — Supercomputer company Cray Inc. has announced it would establish a supercomputing center of excellence at the Dept. of Energy's (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory, supporting DOE's plans to build the world's most powerful supercomputer for open research there.

Last May, DOE awarded Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Center for Computational Science $25 million to create the world's fastest supercomputer. DOE recently signed a contract with Cray to implement a 20-teraflop Cray X1E scalable vector system and 20-teraflop Cray XT3 parallel superscalar system at Oak Ridge this year.

Cray expects its scientists at the center of excellence to work closely with Oak Ridge National Laboratory and DOE Office of Science researchers to provide a computational environment to support scientific and engineering breakthroughs.

The company also expects the collaboration to produce insights for future Cray hardware and software technologies.

Cray's John Levesque will serve as program director for the center of excellence.
