Who says world-class high performance computing (HPC) should be reserved for large research centers? It has become no impossible today to have a very high capacity and perfromance computer, or simply called as a super computer at your home. This can happen with Cray CX1. The Cray CX1™ deskside personal supercomputer is the “right size” in performance, functionality, and cost for individuals and departmental workgroups who want to harness HPC without the complexity of traditional clusters.
Equipped with powerful Intel® Xeon® processors and state-of-the-art visualization and storage capabilities, the Cray CX1 supercomputer delivers industry-leading performance across a broad range of applications and standard benchmarks, all in a compact, deskside system that plugs into a standard wall outlet. And, with an integrated Microsoft or Linux operating environment, the Cray CX1 supercomputer delivers true “ease of everything” computing, allowing any user to apply HPC power to challenging science, engineering, and design problems. Designed and priced for individuals and departmental workgroups, the Cray CX1 is simple to configure, deploy, administer and use. With the Cray CX1 supercomputer, Cray takes the HPC cluster out of the data center and places it next to your desk.
Featuring Intel Xeon processor technology, the Cray CX1 supercomputer is a certified Intel Cluster Ready system. The certification program, sponsored by Intel, was designed to establish a common specification among original equipment manufacturers, independent software vendors (ISVs) and others for designing, programming and deploying clusters built with Intel components. For users, the certification means that the Cray CX1 system will support a wide range of Intel Cluster Ready ISV applications out of the box.
