Today Cray announced a contract to provide Mississippi State University with a Cray CS300-LC supercomputer. Nicknamed “Shadow,” the liquid-cooled system will serve as the University’s primary high performance computing system for shared research.
Our mission is to serve the University, State and Nation through excellence in computational science and engineering, and we are pleased to have the resources of a Cray supercomputer to support our efforts,” said Trey Breckenridge, director of high performance computing at Mississippi State. “With the Cray CS300 system and its advanced liquid-cooling architecture, we will provide our vast user community with a cost-effective and energy-efficient high performance computing system that is also a powerful and technologically-advanced tool for scientific research.”
The Cray CS300-LC liquid-cooled design uses warm water heat exchangers instead of chillers to directly cool the compute processors and memory, allowing for a more efficient removal of system heat.
