Today Cray announced that the Department of Defense High Performance Computing Modernization Program has awarded a $16 Million contract to Cray to upgrade the program’s three existing Cray XE6 supercomputers.
Breaking through the challenges faced by the Department of Defense research, development, test, and evaluation communities requires increasingly powerful supercomputers in addition to the unique expertise that the HPCMP provides,” said John E. West, director of the DOD HPCMP. “Cray has been a technology partner of the HPCMP for many years, and we look forward to continuing that relationship through the deployment of these systems.”
The upgrade to the three systems and the consolidation into one large Cray supercomputer, as well as the delivery of the Cray XE6m system to the Naval Research Laboratory, are expected to be completed later this year. Read the Full Story.
