Cray XC30 Series Supercomputers
The Cray XC30 family delivers on Cray's commitment to an adaptive supercomputing architecture that provides both extreme scalability and sustained performance. The flexibility of the Cray XC30 platform ensures that users can configure the exact machine to meet their specific requirements today, and also remain confident they can upgrade and enhance their system to address the demands of the future.
Previously codenamed "Cascade," Cray XC30 and XC30-AC supercomputers are enabled by a robust Intel® Xeon® processor road map, Aries high performance interconnect and flexible Dragonfly network topology, providing low latency and scalable global bandwidth to satisfy the most challenging multi-petaflop applications.
While the extreme scaling Cray XC30 supercomputer is a transverse air-flow liquid-cooled architecture, the Cray XC30-AC air-cooled family provides slightly smaller and less dense supercomputing cabinets with no requirement for liquid coolants or extra blower cabinets. A reduced network topology lowers costs and the systems are completely compatible with the compute technology, OS, ISV and software stack support of the high-end Cray XC30 systems.
