ORNL Debut of Cray XK7 "Titan" System Marks Launch of Cray's Newest Line of Supercomputers


 
New Cray XK7 Systems to Leverage AMD Opteron Processors and Latest GPU Accelerators From NVIDIA

Oct 29, 2012 -- Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. (NASDAQ: CRAY) today announced the launch of the Company's new series of production hybrid supercomputers -- the Cray XK7 system -- in conjunction with today's debut of the Cray XK7 supercomputer nicknamed "Titan" located at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Titan is capable of more than 20 petaflops of high performance computing (HPC) power and is the world's most powerful supercomputer for open science.


The Titan system is a 200-cabinet Cray XK7 supercomputer with18,688 compute nodes each consisting of a16-Core AMD Opteron™ 6200 Series processor and an NVIDIA® Tesla® K20 GPU Accelerator. Titan was upgraded from a Cray XT5 supercomputer nicknamed "Jaguar."


The transformation from Jaguar to Titan is another significant milestone in the collaborative partnership between Cray and ORNL that has produced groundbreaking HPC accomplishments. In 2008, Jaguar set a world record for computer speed with sustained performance of more than one petaflops on two scientific applications, and the system subsequently passed that threshold a total of five times on real-world applications. In 2009, Jaguar claimed the number one spot on the list of the fastest supercomputers in the world. In October 2011, Cray announced it had received a contract to upgrade Jaguar to Titan and equip the system with NVIDIA Tesla 20-series GPUs; and today, the Cray XK7 system made its debut.


"Today's unveiling of the Titan supercomputer is an exciting moment for Oak Ridge and the Department of Energy's Office of Science, and while the system is currently going through the acceptance process, all of us at Cray share in the enthusiasm that surrounds this amazing tool for open science," said Peter Ungaro, president and CEO of Cray. "The Titan supercomputer is an incredibly powerful Cray XK7 system combining innovative technologies from companies such as AMD and NVIDIA, surrounded by a tightly-integrated Cray hardware and software infrastructure. With today's launch of the Cray XK7, we can now offer our customers the same technologies found in one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world."


The Cray XK7 system features the latest production hybrid supercomputing technologies. By combining the features of the proven high performance Gemini interconnect, the new NVIDIA Tesla K20 GPUs and the 16-core AMD Opteron processors, the Cray XK7 system is capable of scaling to more than 50 petaflops of performance.


The Cray XK7 supercomputer also features a unified CPU/GPU programming environment that provides users with validated tools, libraries, compilers and third-party software, fully integrated with the system's hardware. When combined with the Cray Linux Environment, the result is a hybrid supercomputer that blends scalable hardware, software and network. Cray XK7 customers will be able to utilize the capabilities of a multi-purpose supercomputer designed for the next-generation of many-core, HPC applications.


Upgradeable from Cray XT4, Cray XT5, Cray XT6, Cray XE6 or Cray XK6 systems, the Cray XK7 supercomputer is available now. The system can be configured in a single cabinet with tens of compute nodes, to a multi-cabinet system with tens of thousands of compute nodes.


Additional information on the Cray XK7 supercomputer, including a brochure and technical details, can be found on the Cray XK7 system page on the Cray website.


Titan is currently going through the system acceptance process. Cray will not recognize the remaining revenue associated with this system until it has been accepted, and the timing of such acceptance remains uncertain.

News Release


 


The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center Presents Sherlock, a YarcData uRiKa System for Unlocking the Secrets of Big Data


 
Nov 07, 2012 -- The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) and YarcData, a Cray (NASDAQ: CRAY) company, today announced the deployment of "Sherlock," a uRiKA graph-analytics appliance from YarcData for efficiently discovering unknown relationships or patterns "hidden" in extremely large and complex bodies of information. Funded through the Strategic Technologies for Cyberinfrastructure (STCI) program of the National Science Foundation, Sherlock features innovative hardware and software, as well as PSC-specific enhancements, designed to extend the range of applicability to scales not otherwise feasible.


These techniques have been long used by the government and are coming into wider commercial use. Sherlock will focus on extending the domain of applicability of these techniques to a wide range of scientific research projects.


"Sherlock," says Nick Nystrom, PSC director of strategic applications, "provides a unique capability for discovering new patterns and relationships in data. It will help to discover how genes work, probe the dynamics of social networks, and detect the sources of breaches in Internet security." Those diverse challenges, along with many others, he adds, have two important features in common: Their data are naturally expressed as interconnected webs of information called graphs, and data sizes for problems of real-world interest become extremely large.


"Until now, graph analytics has largely been impractical for big data," says Nystrom. This is because, he explains, processing of graph structures requires irregular and unpredictable access to data. On ordinary computers and clusters, nearly all the time is spent waiting for that data to move from memory to processors. Even more challenging, graphs of interest typically cannot be partitioned; their high connectivity prevents dividing them into subgraphs that can be mapped independently onto distributed-memory computers. These factors have precluded large-scale graph analytics, especially for the interactive response times that analysts need to explore data. "YarcData's uRiKA," says Nystrom, "overcomes that barrier through groundbreaking innovations in computer hardware and software."


Sherlock enables large-scale, rapid graph analytics through massive multithreading, a shared address space, sophisticated memory optimizations, a productive user environment, and support for heterogeneous applications -- all packaged as an enterprise-ready appliance. "Sherlock provides researchers with a uniquely powerful tool for doing complex analytics on big data, expanding the capability to address problems of societal importance," says Nystrom.


"Many current approaches to big data have been about 'search' -- the ability to efficiently find something that you know is there in your data," said Arvind Parthasarathi, President of YarcData. "uRiKA was purposely built to solve the problem of 'discovery' in big data -- to discover things, relationships or patterns that you don't know exist. By giving organizations the ability to do much faster hypothesis validation at scale and in real time, we are enabling the solution of business problems that were previously difficult or impossible -- whether it be discovering the ideal patient treatment, investigating fraud, detecting threats, finding new trading algorithms or identifying counter-party risk. Basically, we are systematizing serendipity."


The project complements ongoing leadership in data-intensive computing at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). Randal E. Bryant, Dean of the School of Computer Science at CMU, notes, "We're very pleased that the PSC will have this new capability for analyzing large-scale, unstructured graphs. Such data structures pervade many of the big data applications being investigated by researchers in such diverse areas as biology (e.g., the connectivity between molecules in a protein), networks (e.g., the structure of the world-wide web), and artificial intelligence (e.g., the relationships between different concepts.) The uRiKA system will enable scientists to deal with far more complex graphs than would otherwise be possible."


YarcData's uRiKA is a Big Data appliance for graph analytics that enables enterprises to discover unknown relationships in Big Data. uRiKA is a highly-scalable, real-time platform that supports ad hoc queries, pattern based searches, inferencing and deduction. uRiKA is a purpose-built appliance for graph analytics featuring graph-optimized hardware that provides up to 512 terabytes of global shared memory, massively-multithreaded graph processors supporting 128 threads/processor, and an RDF/SPARQL database optimized for the underlying hardware enabling applications to interact with the appliance using industry standard interfaces. Singularly focused on graph analytics, uRiKA augments existing analytical environments by delivering new high-value discoveries and insights that drive competitive advantage.


PSC customized Sherlock with additional nodes having standard x86 processors to add valuable support for heterogeneous applications that use YarcData's Threadstorm nodes as graph accelerators. This heterogeneous capability will enable an even broader class of applications, such as genomics, astrophysics, and structural analyses of complex networks. Sherlock runs an enhanced suite of familiar semantic web software for easy access to powerful analytic functionality, together with common programming languages. PSC's Data Supercell provides complementary, high-performance access to large datasets for ongoing, collaborative analysis.


Prototype projects, led by researchers from across the country, will use Sherlock for research including understanding the natural language of the Web, learning about human social networks involving different types of online and telephone interactions, cluster finding in astrophysics, and genome sequence assembly. For example, Bin Zhang, of the Fox School of Business at Temple University, notes the potential for Sherlock to expand his research into clustering in social networks, "With the help of Sherlock, I can finally observe the true size of social groups in real-world networks of millions to even a billion people. Researchers believe that social group size is larger for online social networks than for traditional groups, but so far it has been impossible to extract groups from large networks and visualize their structures. Sherlock can finally enable us to observe the structure of large social groups and even the whole network." Additional projects will be introduced over time; more information is available at www.psc.edu/sherlock.

The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is a joint effort of Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh together with Westinghouse Electric Company. Established in 1986, PSC is supported by several federal agencies, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and private industry, and is a partner in the National Science Foundation XSEDE program.

Separately today, the Company announced it signed a definitive agreement to acquire Appro International, Inc., a leading provider of cluster solutions in the high performance computing market, for approximately $25 million in cash, which assumes at least a $3.5 million net working capital balance at closing, with no debt. The transaction is expected to close relatively soon, possibly in the next few days or weeks, subject to customary closing conditions. 


"We made good progress on our strategic roadmap in the third quarter, highlighted by several significant wins around the world for our new Cray XC30 supercomputer, previously called Cascade, which we launched yesterday," said Peter Ungaro, president and CEO of Cray. "We are also very excited by the opportunities created with our planned acquisition of Appro. When taken together with our three growth initiatives which continue to make solid gains in the market, we are building a broad portfolio of offerings across the HPC and Big Data markets, providing us with multiple high growth opportunities."


Ungaro added, "We recently achieved a major milestone by completing installation and beginning the acceptance process at both the University of Illinois for their Blue Waters supercomputer and at Oak Ridge National Laboratory for their Titan system -- both are central to our 2012 outlook. While we still have a lot of work left to do in order to get these systems fully accepted, it is exciting to have installed two of the largest supercomputers on the planet. With continued progress we are positioned to deliver very strong results for the year."


Outlook


A wide range of results remains possible for 2012. While many variables may impact our results, the most significant is the timing of the acceptances of the Blue Waters and Titan supercomputers, which together could represent roughly $180 million in product revenue. These are two of the largest systems we have ever built and both are on tight timelines due to previous delays of third-party components. Assuming acceptance of these systems occurs in 2012, as currently planned, we anticipate total revenue to be in the range of $450 million for the year.


For 2012, overall gross margins are anticipated to be in the 35% range and total operating expenses are expected to be about $120 million. Based on this outlook, we expect to be solidly profitable for 2012, independent of the $139 million pre-tax gain on the development program divestiture that occurred during the second quarter. 


The impact of the planned acquisition of Appro is not included in our 2012 outlook as the transaction is not yet closed.


The Company's 2012 effective income tax rate is currently projected to be about 5-8%, but is dependent on a number of variables.


For 2013, while it is very early in the annual budgeting cycle, based on the current outlook for 2012 and assuming successful completion of the Appro acquisition in 2012 as planned, we expect revenue to grow slightly as compared to 2012. Gross margins for 2013 are anticipated to be in the mid-30% range. Total operating expenses for 2013 are anticipated to increase significantly year-over-year due to increased investments in our storage and big data initiatives, completion of our DARPA program, annual compensation increases, as well as the Appro acquisition. The acquisition is expected to contribute at least $60 million in revenue and add about $15 million in operating expenses in 2013 (excluding potential purchase cost adjustments). Based on this outlook, we expect to be profitable for 2013. 


The Company's 2013 effective income tax rate is currently projected to be about 40% but is dependent on a number of variables. Due to the Company's substantial net operating loss carryforwards, the quarterly and annual income tax provision is expected to be largely non-cash.


Actual results for any future period are subject to large fluctuations given the nature of Cray's business.

09-11-2012 12:41  DJ MARKET TALK: Cray on Tight Leash in Finishing Projects in 2012



6:41 EST - Much-better-than-anticipated 3Q results from CRAY as the supercomputer maker also announced a $25M acquisition of peer Appro. But the 4Q isn't set in stone, CRAY admits, as the company's 2 biggest-ever systems are hoped to be delivered by year's end and generate revenue for CRAY this year. But "both are on tight timelines due to previous delays of third-party components." Assuming the year-end target is met, the company anticipates slightly higher revenue next year, including Appro, from this year's projected $450M, the high end of prior views. The 2 analysts which have thus far given estimates to Thomson Reuters--and they don't include the acquisition--both projected $402M for 2013. CRAY, inactive premarket, is up 86% this year.

Wirklich Klasse. Auch wenn der Kurs im vergangenen, traurigen Umfeld Mühe hatte, heute hat die Cray wieder bewiesen, was sie fähig sind.


Man muss halt unterscheiden können, wenn eine Grossfirma Pech hat im PC-Bereich, heisst das ja nicht, dass die Supercomputer von Cray nicht Erfolg haben können. Sie haben Erfolg. Hoffe, dass alles noch gut reingeht in diesem Jahr, denke aber schon. Clapping

Cray Awarded $39 Million Supercomputer Contract From the North-German Supercomputing Alliance (HLRN)


 
Dec 17, 2012 -- Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. (NASDAQ: CRAY) today announced the Company has been awarded a $39 million contract from the North-German Supercomputing Alliance (HLRN) to deliver a distributed Cray XC30 supercomputing system, which will be operated at two sites -- the Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB) and the High Performance Computing Center (RRZN) at Leibniz University in Hannover, Germany.


HLRN is an alliance amongst seven states in Northern Germany -- Berlin, Brandenburg, Bremen, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Niedersachsen, and Schleswig-Holstein -- that have combined resources and secured funding from the state governments and the German federal government to acquire the new Cray XC30 systems.


The HLRN sites in Berlin and Hannover plan to operate the Cray XC30 supercomputers as one combined system, providing universities and research centers in the northern states of Germany with a powerful petascale computing resource. Named "HLRN-III," the Cray XC30 supercomputing system will support advanced scientific research in a wide range of fields, including environmental research, climate and ocean modeling, physics, chemistry, bio-informatics, engineering, and fluid dynamics.


"Researchers in Northern Germany will soon benefit from a significant increase in computing power as a result of procuring the new HLRN-III system from Cray," said Prof. Dr. Thomas Rung, head of the Scientific Board of the HLRN. "The Cray XC30 offers a flexible computing architecture that will fulfill our need for advanced supercomputing technologies now and into the future. This is an exciting moment for the scientific community across the northern states of Germany."


"We are very excited that HLRN has turned to Cray to provide their researchers and scientists with an innovative supercomputing system that is designed to deliver breakthrough science with superior performance and scalability," said Dr. Ulla Thiel, Cray vice president, Europe. "With these large installations in Berlin and Hannover, Cray continues to strengthen its presence internationally and expand its coverage across the European HPC landscape."


Previously code-named "Cascade," the Cray XC30 supercomputer is Cray's most advanced high performance computing (HPC) system and is engineered to meet the performance challenges of HPC users. The Cray XC30 supercomputer features the new HPC-optimized Aries system interconnect; a new Dragonfly topology that frees applications from locality constraints; an innovative cooling system that utilizes a transverse airflow to lower customers' total cost of ownership; the next-generation of the scalable, high performance Cray Linux Environment that also supports a wide range of ISV applications; Cray's HPC optimized programming environment; and the ability to handle a wide variety of processor types including the Intel® Xeon® processors -- a first for Cray's high-end systems.


Consisting of products and services, the multi-year, multi-phase contract is valued at more than $39 million, and a vast majority of the system is expected to be delivered and put into production in 2013. As part of this contract, the HLRN-III system will also include a Cray storage solution, which will incorporate products from DDN and Hitachi Data Systems.


About HLRN
The North-German Supercomputing Alliance (Norddeutscher Verbund für Hoch- und Höchstleistungsrechnen - HLRN) is a joint project of the seven North-German states of Berlin, Brandenburg, Bremen, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Niedersachsen, and Schleswig-Holstein, and was established in 2001.

Cray Announces Selected Preliminary 2012 Financial Results
 
 
Company Increases 2013 Revenue Guidance to $500 Million

Jan 04, 2013 -- Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. (NASDAQ: CRAY) today announced selected preliminary 2012 financial results. The 2012 results presented in this release are based on preliminary financial data and are subject to change until the year-end financial reporting process is complete.

Based on preliminary results, total revenue for 2012 is expected to be about $420 million, of which less than $1 million is attributable to the acquisition of Appro International, Inc. For 2012, gross margins are expected to be approximately 36%, slightly higher than previously provided guidance, and total operating expenses are expected to be about $120 million, consistent with previously provided guidance. Total operating expenses for 2012 will depend on the final accounting treatment of the Appro acquisition and includes estimates of approximately $7 million in stock based compensation and acquisition related expenses. Based on these preliminary results, the Company expects to be solidly profitable for 2012, independent of the $139 million pre-tax gain on the development program divestiture completed during the second quarter.

As of Dec. 31, 2012, cash and investments are expected to total about $320 million.

"We had a record year in 2012 in revenue and operating income -- even after excluding the gain from the Intel transaction," said Peter Ungaro, president and CEO of Cray. "The year was highlighted by the installations of both the largest system in our Company's history and our largest commercial win ever, and by the building momentum in our storage and Big Data initiatives. We completed the acceptance process on the Blue Waters supercomputer at the University of Illinois, but were not able to complete the upgrade to the XK7 system at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. We now expect to complete the Oak Ridge acceptance during the first half of 2013 and have increased our outlook accordingly." 

While a wide range of results remains possible for 2013, the Company now expects 2013 revenue to be about $500 million. Revenue is expected to ramp during 2013 with about $60 million in the first quarter and roughly 45% of the annual revenue expected in the fourth quarter. Gross margins for 2013 are anticipated to be in the mid-30% range. Total operating expenses for the year are expected to be in the range of $160 million, which includes approximately $10 million in non-cash items including stock based compensation and the preliminary estimate of amortization of items related to the Appro acquisition. Based on this outlook, we expect to be profitable for 2013. 

Upcoming Event
Cray will be attending the 15th Annual Needham Growth Conference at the New York Palace Hotel in New York City. The Cray presentation will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 16, at 2:10 p.m. EST.

The Cray presentation will be available to the public via live audio webcast. To listen to the webcast, go to the Investors section of the Cray website at http://investors.cray.com. An archived version of the webcast will be available on the Cray website for 90 days.

The Cray XC30 supercomputer features the new Aries system interconnect; a new Dragonfly network topology that frees applications from locality constraints; an innovative cooling system that utilizes a transverse airflow to lower customers' total cost of ownership; the next-generation of the scalable, high performance Cray Linux Environment that also supports a wide range of ISV applications; Cray's HPC optimized programming environment; and the ability to handle a wide variety of processor types including the Intel® Xeon® processors -- a first for Cray's high-end systems.

The two Cray Sonexion 1600 storage systems that will be deployed at DWD will have a combined capacity of more than 3 petabytes of storage and 72 gigabytes per-second of combined bandwidth. Cray's Sonexion Lustre System for HPC provides an embedded, compact design that can reduce the overall storage footprint by up to 50 percent over component-based solutions. Sonexion ensures consistency and predictability when scaling Lustre, and offers precision performance, optimal scalability, and an open solution for HPC and Big Data in a compact form factor.

Consisting of products and services, the multi-year, multi-phase contract is valued at more than $23 million, and the systems are expected to be delivered and put into production in 2013 and 2014.

Gruss,

Simona

Das freut uns alles doch. Gute Fachleute kann man brauchen, besonders, wenn diese sogar Erfahrung mit Grosskonzernen mitbringen. Da kann mein Kursziel ja bleiben, so gegen 40 -50.- dann mal, nachdem wir die 30.- genommen haben..
