Cray® CS™ SMP: Shared Memory Parallel System

The Cray® CS™ 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 multisocket servers. Preconfigured as an optimized solution, the SMP system is based on configurations of the air-cooled Cray CS cluster supercomputer series utilizing vSMP Foundation™ software from ScaleMP™.

Offering users a single point of management with the combination of a large number of cores and memory, the CS 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.
