Shasta Solution Brief

Supercomputing for the Exascale Era

For your next era of science, discovery and achievement

Today’s science, technology and big data questions are bigger, more complex and more urgent than ever. Answering them demands an entirely new approach to computing.

Meet the next era of supercomputing.

Code-named Shasta™, this system is our most significant technology advancement in decades. With it, we’re introducing revolutionary capabilities for revolutionary questions.

Shasta innovations include:

Single-system architecture that
eliminates the distinction
between supercomputers and clusters

Data-centric design to run diverse
modeling, simulation, AI and analytics workloads at the same time

High-speed, purpose-built Slingshot™ interconnect, our eighth generation of scalable HPC network

Designed for a decade or more of work, Shasta also eliminates the need for frequent, expensive upgrades, giving you exceptionally low total cost of ownership. With its software architecture you can deploy a workflow and management environment in a single system, regardless of packaging.
