Japan's Railway Technical Research Institute latest Cray customer

Cray announced today that JRTRI has just completed fielding two Crays, a big ‘un and a little ‘un

Cray logoBased in Tokyo, RTRI places great importance on the application of supercomputer-based simulation technology in its R&D efforts. With the goal of driving computing simulations in parallel environments, RTRI is now tapping into the technical expertise offered by Cray to set up a large-scale, efficient computing environment.

…The Cray products now operating at RTRI are a three-cabinet Cray XT4 supercomputer that serves as the institute’s main system and a Cray CX1 deskside supercomputer that functions as the application server. This system delivers a combined peak performance of 10.8 teraflops (trillions of calculations per second), which is 16 times faster than the institute’s previous system. The panels on the Cray XT4 feature a custom illustration evoking the promising future of railway technology. The illustration is rendered in purple, the color of RTRI’s company logo.
