Sweden's Royal Institute of Technology orders a Cray XT6m supercomputer

1 Jun 2010 Hamburg - At the 2010 International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) in Hamburg, Germany, Cray Inc. announced that Sweden's Royal Institute of Technology (KTH: Kungliga Tekniska Hoegskolan) is the latest organisation to order a Cray XT6m supercomputing system. KTH's PDC Center for High Performance Computing is acquiring a 93-teraflops Cray XT6m supercomputer as part of a national plan by the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) to provide Sweden's scientists with access to world-class high performance computing resources.

The new Cray XT6m supercomputer, which uses the new 12-core AMD Opteron 6100 Series processor, will support scientists in a wide range of disciplines, including computational chemistry, bioinformatics, molecular dynamics, computational fluid dynamics and other areas.

"The Cray XT6m system is an integrated supercomputing solution that will provide Swedish scientists with unprecedented capabilities for increased scientific productivity", stated Dr. Erwin Laure, director of the PDC Center for High Performance Computing. "The new supercomputer will allow users to run larger and more complex problems with higher resolution than was possible with our previous computing resources."

"We are very excited that PDC/KTH has selected Cray", stated Dr. Ulla Thiel, Cray vice president, Europe. "We are proud to welcome this prestigious institution to the growing community of Cray customers in Europe. The Cray XT6m supercomputer has been a huge success with top European research institutions that need a higher performing and more tightly integrated production system than commodity clusters can offer."

The Cray XT6m is the second generation of Cray's midrange supercomputer and it is designed to effectively scale down Cray's high-end systems such that an expanded base of users have access to the benefits of a high-end Cray system. Upgradeable from a Cray XT5m, the Cray XT6m builds on the reliability and efficiency of the Cray XT product line but is optimized to support scalable application workloads in the midrange high performance computing market where applications require up to 13,000 cores of processing power.
