Cray Management Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Let me tell you about a couple of these recent wins. On the U.S. front, we were awarded a new contract to deliver a Cascade supercomputer and a Sonexion storage system to the Department of Energy's National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center, also known as NERSC. NERSC is part of the large Berkeley National Laboratory and they serve over 4,000 users working on a wide array of scientific research disciplines to improve our country's competitiveness and natural resource sustainability.

Also in the quarter, we were awarded a new contract by the Department of Defense's High-Performance Computing Monetization Program to perform a significant upgrade to the program's 3 existing XE6 systems, and combine them into a single petascale supercomputer. We'll be doubling the number of process reports in each of the 3 systems by upgrading them to the latest AMD Opteron technology.

In Europe, we were awarded a new contract to deliver one of our next-generation Cascade supercomputers to the Finnish IT Center for Science. It's a multiyear, multiphase contract with the majority of the system being delivered in 2014. And just this month in Australia, we're awarded a contract to deliver a Cascade supercomputer with Sonexion storage to the Pawsey Centre in Perth. This is a notable win as one of the uses of this system will be to support the data-intensive science that will be carried out by the Australian Square Kilometer Array Project. The amount of data ultimately generated by this project will be so fast that researchers must analyze it in real-time, a process which required massive amounts of computing power.
