Cray CS-Storm Accelerator-Optimized Cluster Supercomputer

As part of the Cray® CS™ cluster supercomputer series, Cray offers the CS-Storm cluster, an accelerator-optimized system that consists of multiple high-density multi-GPU server nodes, designed for massively parallel computing workloads. Whether users collect these vast amounts of data for strategic or day-to-day operations, they can more efficiently and accurately convert raw data into actionable information.


HPC Workloads

The CS-Storm system is well suited for HPC workloads in the defense, oil and gas, media and entertainment, life sciences and business intelligence sectors. Typical applications include cybersecurity, geospatial intelligence, pattern recognition, seismic processing, rendering and machine learning.


System Components

Each Cray CS-Storm cluster rack can hold up to 22 2U rackmount CS-Storm server nodes. Each of these servers integrates eight accelerators and two Intel® Xeon® processors, delivering up to 1/3 GPU petaflops of compute performance in one 48U rack. The system is available with a comprehensive HPC software stack including tools that are customizable to work with most open-source and commercial compilers, schedulers and libraries. The Cray HPC cluster software stack includes Cray’s Advanced Cluster Engine (ACE™) management software, which provides network, server, cluster and storage management capabilities with easy system administration and maintenance.
