New Cray ClusterStor E1000 to Power Exascale Workloads

Today Cray unveiled its Cray ClusterStor E1000 system, an entirely new parallel storage platform for the Exascale Era. “As the external high performance storage system for the first three U.S. exascale systems, Cray ClusterStor E1000 will total over 1.3 exabytes of storage for all three systems combined. ClusterStor E1000 systems can deliver up to 1.6 terabytes per second and up to 50 million I/O operations per second per rack – more than double compared to other parallel storage systems in the market today.”

Cray to Build El Capitan Exascale Supercomputer at LLNL

Today the Department of Energy announced that Cray will build the NNSA’s first exascale supercomputer, “El Capitan.” To be hosted at LLNL, El Capitan will have a peak performance of more than 1.5 exaflops and an anticipated delivery in late 2022. El Capitan will be DOE’s third exascale-class supercomputer, following Argonne National Laboratory’s “Aurora” and Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s “Frontier” system. All three DOE exascale supercomputers will be built by Cray utilizing their Shasta architecture, Slingshot interconnect and new software platform.
