SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Nov 15, 2013) - Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. (
"Cray has devoted years of R&D investments towards designing, building and refining a productive compiler that can build compute intensive applications on high-end supercomputing systems," said Peg Williams, Cray's senior vice president of high performance computing systems. "By extending the CCE to our CS300 systems, we have added a finely-tuned compiler to our line of flexible, integrated and energy efficient cluster supercomputers. With one common compiler across multiple platforms of Cray supercomputing systems, we are bringing familiarity and ease-of-use to the data center."
Cray and its compiling environment have been at the forefront of performance and programming innovations. As a co-founding member of OpenACC -- a non-profit organization founded with the purpose of advancing directives-based programming methodology for enabling high performance accelerators and co-processors in hybrid supercomputing systems -- Cray helped define OpenACC as a programming model. The CCE was one of the first compiling environments to support OpenACC, and is designed to support x86 processors, NVIDIA® Tesla® GPU accelerators and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors.
The CCE also supports Cray LibSci, which offers a library of highly-tuned linear algebra solvers that enhances user CPU and GPU application performance based on problem size, and improving productivity for Fortran, C, and C++ programmers. Additionally, Cray will continue to support multiple compilers on the Cray CS300 systems, including compilers from the GNU Compiler Collection, Intel, PathScale and PGI.
About the Cray CS300 cluster supercomputers
The Cray CS300 series of cluster supercomputers are scalable, cluster solutions that group optimized, industry-standard building block server platforms into a unified, fully-integrated system. Available with air or liquid-cooled architectures, Cray CS300 systems provide superior price/performance, energy efficiency and configuration flexibility. The systems are integrated with Cray's HPC software stack and include software tools compatible with most open source and commercial compilers, schedulers, and libraries. Cray CS300 systems also feature the Cray Advanced Cluster Engine, an essential management software suite designed to provide network, server, cluster and storage management capabilities that are necessary to run large, complex technical applications.
