Cray Solutions for Chemistry and Life Sciences
Chemistry and life sciences knowledge is expanding as quickly as high performance computing can keep up. Cray systems are leading the way, facilitating molecular and biological simulations unthinkable just a few years ago.
Chemistry and life sciences present a tough challenge for high performance computing (HPC). Its study covers ranging, computationally intensive topics – from quantum mechanics to next-generation sequencing and medical imaging – and tackling these complex areas of inquiry tests the limits of HPC and is shaping the design future technologies.
Cray is meeting and mastering the challenges. The Cray XC30 and Cray XK7 systems have highly scalable networks and the unmatched compute density to handle the most challenging capability-computing needs. The capacity-oriented Cray CS300-AC and Cray CS300-LC cluster supercomputers offer high performance and maximum configuration flexibility. Cray storage and data management
provides integrated, reliable and modular scale-out Lustre storage
solutions that maximize file system performance and scalability at any
size. And the Urika graph analytics appliance transforms Big Data problems into meaningful information.
Along with our current technologies, Cray is also working alongside life science researchers to leverage emerging compute and data-intensive technologies in support of further advances.
Leaders in academia, healthcare and the chemical industry such as the University of Chicago, the Mayo Clinic, Pharma and P&G have chosen Cray to answer their HPC needs.
