Why HPE Cray EX Is the Supercomputer of Choice at Leading Weather Centers

[SPONSORED POST] For decades, compute resources used for weather forecasting have tracked with advances in state-of-the-art supercomputing. Which is to say that the weather segment demands systems with the greatest data ingest and storage capacity combined with the most powerful processing capabilities. As the accuracy of daily weather forecasts and warnings of severe weather depend on high-performance computing combined, increasingly, with artificial intelligence, it is perhaps not surprising that weather segment IT spending has not been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Hyperion Research predicts that it will in fact grow by an astonishing 33 percent between 2021–20241, significantly outpacing
