Cray Launches The Cray Sonexion 1300

Cray has launched the Cray Sonexion 1300 system — an integrated file system, software and storage product. The Cray Sonexion 1300 system is shipped as an integrated solution with all management and Lustre software installed, and Cray will provide global support and services for Sonexion systems. Cray will support Sonexion 1300 systems for clients on both Cray and non-Cray compute systems.

Designed specifically for a wide range of HPC workloads, the Cray Sonexion 1300 system scales from approximately 50 terabytes to more than 50 petabytes of useable capacity without a compromise in performance. The storage system also features data rates of more than a terabyte-per-second.

Cray Sonexion systems are built from three major components: high performance Scalable Storage Units, a Metadata Management Unit, and network-ready cabinets that include InfiniBand switch connectivity. Customers’ varying requirements for capacity and bandwidth can be met and upgraded on-the-fly.

The Cray Sonexion 1300 system prices start at less than $250,000.
