Cray Bags $174 Mln Supercomputer Contract From NNSA - Quick Facts

Cray Inc. (CRAY) said it has been awarded a $174 million deal to provide the National Nuclear Security Administration or NNSA with a next generation Cray XC supercomputer and a Cray Sonexion storage system.

The next-generation Cray XC supercomputer would provide the NNSA with a world-class supercomputing system to advance the mission for the agency's stockpile stewardship program. The system, named "Trinity" by the NNSA, is a joint effort between the New Mexico Alliance for Computing at Extreme Scale at the Los Alamos National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories as part of the NNSA Advanced Simulation and Computing Program.

The Trinity system would support all 3 of the NNSA national laboratories, including Los Alamos National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The NNSA's current supercomputer sited at Los Alamos is a Cray XE6™ system named "Cielo." The new Trinity system may deliver over 8 times greater applications performance than the Cielo system, the company added.
