Cray Inc. announces $3.5 million order for Red Storm product.
"Red Storm" is a 40-TeraOps (40 trillion calculations per second) supercomputer Cray is scheduled to deliver this year to Sandia National Laboratories under a $93 million Department of Energy contract.
Cray announced plans to develop the Red Storm-based product in October 2003. Earlier this year, Cray announced advance orders for the product from the Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and an unnamed Canadian customer.
"The Red Storm-based product targets the need for highly scalable microprocessor-based supercomputers with extremely high bandwidth. It is designed to be more efficient and cost-effective for challenging problems and workloads than the clustered SMP systems available in the marketplace today," according to Peter Ungaro, Cray's vice president of worldwide marketing and sales. "Red Storm takes the highly successful MPP systems of the past and updates it with the latest in advanced technology; customers are showing a lot of excitement about Cray bringing this architecture back to the forefront of supercomputing."
