Cray Inc. is an American supercomputer manufacturer headquartered in Seattle, Washington. It also manufactures systems for data storage and analytics. Several Cray supercomputer systems are listed in the TOP500, which ranks the most powerful supercomputers in the world.
Cray manufactures its products in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, where its founder, Seymour Cray, was born and raised. The company also has offices in Bloomington, Minnesota and numerous other sales, service, engineering, and R&D locations around the world.
The company’s predecessor, Cray Research, Inc. (CRI), was founded in 1972 by computer designer Seymour Cray. Seymour Cray went on to form the spin-off Cray Computer Corporation (CCC), in 1989, which went bankrupt in 1995, while Cray Research was bought by SGI the next year. Cray Inc. was formed in 2000 when Tera Computer Company purchased the Cray Research Inc. business from SGI and adopted the name of its acquisition.
Supercomputing problems are not created equal.
Neither are their solutions. We know because we invent them. We’ve been at the forefront of supercomputing for decades, helping our customers extend the boundaries of what they can solve, discover, and achieve.
Does our longevity make us old? If you call leading a technology transformation, building the nation’s first exascale supercomputers, and wearing out the descriptor “next generation” old, then we’ll see you and raise you one quintillion operations per second. We’ve been selected to build the nation’s first exascale supercomputers – systems so powerful they will help transform discovery as we know it.
Big Ideas Are Powered by Supercomputing
You’re a problem solver. When you hit a big challenge, you get a big idea. But if you can’t implement your big idea fast enough, it can be frustrating. Cray supercomputers are purpose-built to provide the speed, performance and scalability you need to get your big ideas up and running. We’ll work with you to understand your idea, then we’ll build a system to support it.
