Cray appoints new SVP of products as company prepares for exascale and expands into commercial market

26 Mar 2019 Seattle - Cray Inc. has appointed John Dinning as its new senior vice president of products. John Dinning brings over two decades of experience strategically guiding technology companies through market positioning, growth and business transformation. The appointment comes as Cray prepares to deploy its newest "Shasta" supercomputing architecture, purpose-built to meet the demands of the exascale era.

"Cray is well positioned to capture the tremendous growth that is occuring within the convergence of modelling and simulation with AI and analytics that require the power and scalability of supercomputing", stated John Dinning. "Cray's next-generation Shasta system is going to be a game changer - a completely new architecture that will power the first U.S. exascale system and power business critical advanced analytics for the enterprise. I am thrilled to be a part of this momentum."

Prior to joining Cray, John Dinning spent more than 17 years at Teradata, a provider of data and analytics solutions for large enterprises. While there, John Dinning most recently served as executive vice president and chief business officer. John Dinning also held leadership roles in product management, global marketing, corporate strategy, M&A and business development. John Dinning's accomplishments at Teradata include repositioning the company and expanding its solutions portfolio, spearheading Teradata's move into the Cloud, and leading the company toward a software-as-a-service solutions model.

"John's proven track record of delivering stand-out results and advancing company growth makes him an excellent addition to our executive team", stated Peter Ungaro, president and CEO of Cray. "With the tremendous growth of data and the rise of AI and digital transformation, HPC-powered solutions are becoming integral to the modern-day enterprise. With John's expertise and background with helping large companies leverage the power of analytics and business intelligence for competitive advantage along with our next generation Shasta platform, we will be well positioned to enable customers across a wide variety of industries move into the next generation of high-performance infrastructure needed for this massive shift in computing."
