Bullet trainToday Cray today announced that the Railway Technical Research Institute (RTRI) in Japan has a pair of the company’s supercomputers into a single virtual system performing complex simulations aimed at advancing railway technologies. Comprised of a Cray XC30-AC supercomputer, a Cray CS300 cluster, and a Cray Sonexion storage system, the 100 Teraflop installation gives researchers and engineers a powerful tool for running the advanced simulations.

High performance computing is a critical element of our R&D initiatives, and after a series of reviews to determine the next-generation supercomputing solution to be the successor to our current system, we once again turned to Cray,” said Hideyuki Takai, Executive Director of RTRI. “The flexibility, reliability, scalability and power efficiency of the Cray supercomputing systems played an important role in our decision, and we are pleased that our researchers and engineers will continue to have the computational tools necessary for performing our daily R&D activities.”
