Mongolia's National Agency of Meteorology and Environmental Monitoring orders a Cray XE6m supercomputer

26 Sep 2011 Seattle - The National Agency of Meteorology and Environmental Monitoring (NAMEM) in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia has ordered a Cray XE6m supercomputer. NAMEM specializes in weather forecasting and climate projection integration in Mongolia, and will use its Cray XE6m system to perform regional weather and climate models for operational and research purposes.

The Mongolian terrain consists of steep mountains and rolling plateaus, and the country's weather is characterized by extreme variability in both short-term weather and multi-year averages. With an economic sector that relies heavily on weather and climate for livestock and arable farming, a compelling need exists for a supercomputer capable of producing high-resolution weather forecasts. The Cray XE6m system will give NAMEM the supercomputing resources necessary for increasing the resolution and accuracy of its weather forecasts and high-impact, extreme events. In addition to superior performance and reliability, NAMEM selected the Cray XE6m system over conventional commodity clusters due to the full-featured system software and application development environment.

"NAMEM will be home to Cray's first supercomputer in Mongolia and we are very pleased that the Cray XE6m system will provide an essential supercomputing resource for the country and its people", stated Andrew Wyatt, vice president, Cray Asia Pacific. "Mongolia's economy is vitally dependant on weather and climate, and the country has a real need for increasing the computing capacity that is necessary for improving the resolution of its weather forecasts. Cray systems are found in weather and climate facilities across Asia and around the globe, and we're excited to be able to bring systems like the Cray XE6m into new countries such as Mongolia."

Expected to be delivered to NAMEM later this year, the Cray XE6m supercomputer will include the upcoming AMD Opteron processors codenamed "Interlagos".

The Cray XE6m supercomputer builds on the scalability and reliability of the Cray XE6 system and uses the same proven petascale technologies, such as the latest version of the Cray Linux Environment, Cray's Gemini interconnect and powerful AMD Opteron processors. The system is designed to maintain an attractive cost of ownership and extend Cray's presence in market segments that have needs for midrange supercomputing systems, such as the university, manufacturing, weather and life sciences communities. Fully upgradeable from previous generation Cray XT5m and Cray XT6m systems, the Cray XE6m supercomputer is also designed to give customers the ability to upgrade to future Cray systems and technologies.
