Cray Wins $40M DoD Contract


Cray has been awarded two supercomputing contracts totaling more than $40 million, to provide the Department of Defense High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP) with three Cray XC30 supercomputers and two Cray Sonexion storage systems.

Cray will deliver a Cray XC30 supercomputer and a Cray Sonexion storage system to the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) located at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. Cray will also deliver two Cray XC30 supercomputers and a Cray Sonexion storage system to the Navy DOD Supercomputing Resource Center (Navy DSRC) located at the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi.

The systems associated with these two contracts are expected to be delivered and installed in 2014.
