SEATTLE, WA and NEW ORLEANS, LA, Nov 16, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
At the 2010 Supercomputing Conference in New Orleans, LA, global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. (NASDAQ: CRAY) today announced that the Company's new Gemini interconnect has been named "Best HPC Interconnect Product or Technology" by the editors of HPCwire as part of the publication's 2010 Readers' and Editors' Choice Awards. Additionally, Cray has been named one of the "Top 5 Vendors to Watch" by HPCwire readers.
Presented by the most widely read publication in the high-performance computing (HPC) industry, the HPCwire Readers' and Editors' Choice Awards were determined through online polling of the global HPCwire audience, along with a rigorous selection process involving HPCwire editors and industry luminaries. The awards are an annual feature of the publication and constitute prestigious recognition from the HPC community. The awards are presented each year to kick off the Supercomputing Conference, which showcases high performance computing, networking, storage and data analysis.
"With the advent of multi-core and many-core processors, there is now a critical need for powerful, scalable networks in order to make supercomputers efficient -- it is what separates a supercomputer from a cluster," said Peter Ungaro, president and CEO of Cray. "We are dedicated to building the most scalable HPC systems available and our Gemini interconnect lies at the heart of these systems. The Cray XE6 and Cray XE6m supercomputers include a mix of features and performance designed specifically for the petascale environment, and it's all made possible by our Gemini interconnect. On behalf of all of our employees at Cray, I want to thank HPCwire for this prestigious award."
