Cray Awarded $30M DoD Supercomputer Contract


Cray was awarded a $30 million supercomputer contract for two Cray XC40 supercomputers and two Cray Sonexion storage systems by the Department of Defense (DoD) High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP) . Awarded by US Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, the contract also includes four separately priced one year options for maintenance. The systems are expected to be installed in 2015.

The Cray systems will be located at the U.S. Navy DoD Supercomputing Resource Center (Navy DSRC) at the John C. Stennis Space Center in Mississippi. The Navy DSRC is a provider of high performance computing services and support to scientists and engineers at the DoD, and is one of the five supercomputing centers established by the HPCMP. The Navy DSRC will use the Cray XC40 supercomputers to produce high-resolution, coastal-ocean circulation and wave-model oceanography products supporting Navy and DoD operations worldwide.
