 EAGAN, Minn., March 24, /PRNewswire/ -- Cray Research, Inc.,


(NYSE: CYR) announced today that the Universite Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), two universities located in Brussels, Belgium, have ordered and installed a CRAY Y-MP 2E at their joint computer center, also in Brussels.
 Representatives of both universities said they are delighted with the new CRAY Y-MP 2E supercomputer. "The replacement of the previous CRAY X-MP system went very smoothly and was achieved in record time. The new system plays a crucial role in the research policy at our universities," the representatives said. Users noted the larger memory and overall improved performance of the Y-MP system allows them to tackle larger problems.
 The CRAY Y-MP 2E supercomputer is also available to other Belgian academic and research institutes through a national network. The system will be used for broad-based research and training in quantum chemistry, molecular dynamics, fluid dynamics, electronics, high-energy physics, econometrics, and computer science.
 "We are delighted to continue to provide high-speed computing solutions to these premier universities," said Bryan Little, vice president of Cray Research's European operations. "The CRAY-MP 2E system will provide university researchers with superior performance capabilities to address the important academic research going on at ULB/VUB, as well as other universities throughout Belgium."
 Cray Research has 298 systems installed worldwide, of which 48 are installed at academic institutions.
