These days, more and more organizations are using high-performance computing systems to seek out answers to big questions. From detecting fraud in financial transactions within milliseconds, to scouring the universe for life, to working toward a cure for cancer, the applications working on these questions require an infrastructure that allows for numerous cores, large swaths of data, and rapid results.
These systems are carefully designed to optimize application performance at scale. Processors, memory, storage, networking — all carefully selected and implemented to drive optimal performance.
However, far too many vendors ignore the impact of another key area of the infrastructure stack … the SOFTWARE.
Software is a key component and a remarkable enabler for gleaning optimal performance from an application and a system. And that means getting that much more performance out of your system, getting you to insights and answers faster.
Along with fine-tuning your hardware infrastructure, imagine the impacts of an HPC-optimized software OS and operating environment. You could witness the impact of lower jitter, more focused intelligence built into to the various levels of the hardware system, and greater levels of job deployment flexibility.
Or think of the impact of a unified, cross-processor programming environment, designed to help your application developers get the most of their HPC applications — a programming interface that gives them broad control and flexibility when it comes to porting, compiling, debugging and optimizing the applications that get you results.
These software applications are the reality for today’s Cray customers.
From the Cray Linux® Environment to the Cray Programming Environment, from powerful systems management to amazing storage telemetry, and from emerging cloud capabilities to effective analytics packages, we enable our customers to take performance to the next level with our comprehensive software portfolio.
Here at Cray, we understand the power of the software stack and have been committed to building the best for several decades. In addition to our work with our ecosystem of software partners and open source communities, we remain big believers in rolling up our sleeves and getting into the code. Our software engineering teams work hand in hand with our system hardware teams to ensure Cray systems are optimized at all levels, and find ways to extend the reach of our partners and open-source projects.
And there’s no slowing down in sight.
It’s time you leveraged the power of HPC-optimized software to answer the big questions you have in your business.
In the coming weeks we’ll bring you a more in-depth look at Cray’s HPC-optimized software stack with blogs, videos, webinars and other helpful tools so that you can maximize the performance of your Cray systems and applications.
