Cray CS300™ SMP: Shared Memory Parallel System

The CS300 shared memory parallel (SMP) system delivers large numbers of cores and large amounts of memory for speeding up the most demanding technical computing workloads that can’t be addressed by traditional multi-socket servers. Preconfigured as a ready-to-go solution, the CS300 SMP is based on optimized configurations of the Cray CS300-AC supercomputer utilizing vSMP Foundation™ software from ScaleMP™.

Offering users a single point of management with the combination of large number of cores and memory, the CS300 SMP enables users to run hundreds to thousands of jobs or applications simultaneously to address data analysis and simulations for electronic design automation (EDA), mechanical CAE, bioinformatics, financial analysis and more.
