"We're proud to continue to support the DOD and its advanced use of high-performance computing in providing ARL and ERDC new systems for their research programmes", stated Peter Ungaro, CEO at Cray. "We're looking forward to continued collaboration with the DOD in leveraging the capabilities of these new systems to achieve their important mission objectives."
Cray has a long history of delivering high-performance computing technologies to ARL and ERDC and continues to play a vital role in helping the organisations deliver on their missions to ensure the U.S. remains a leader in science. Both organisations' CS500 systems will be equipped with 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors and NVIDIA Tensor Core GPUs, and will provide access to high-performance capabilities and resources that make it possible for researchers, scientists and engineers across the Department of Defense to better understand insights and enable new discoveries across diverse research disciplines to address the Department's most challenging problems.
"We are truly proud to partner with Cray to create the worlds most powerful supercomputing platforms. To be selected to help accelerate scientific research and discovery is a testament to our commitment to data centre innovation", stated Forrest Norrod, senior vice president and general manager, Datacenter and Embedded Solutions Business Group, AMD. "By leveraging breakthrough CPU performance and robust feature set of the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors with Cray CS500 supercomputers, the DOD has a tremendous opportunity to grow its computing capabilities and deliver on its missions."
