Exascale computing, in particular, has caught HPE's attention, with the firm swooning that it's expected to generate $4bn worth opportunities are expected to be awarded over the next five years. Cray has also started to develop a seemingly strong relationship with AMD, too, at a time when HPE's supercomputing competitor, IBM, has been strengthening its own relationship with Nvidia, AMD's main rival in the GPU market. "Cray will benefit from joining a company with greater resources and much more experience in commercial markets that are increasingly adopting HPC technology to accelerate R&D and business operations".
Cray recently signed a deal for an Exascale supercomputer contract with the US Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory valued at over $600m. The system, which aims to be the world's fastest, will be built using Cray's Shasta system architecture and Slingshot interconnect. Their first product, the Cray-1 supercomputer, was an instant success, paving the way for Cray to become a major player in the supercomputer industry over the next several decades. It has headquarters in Seattle and makes its machines in the US.
