Cray awarded contract to install a liquid-cooled Cray CS300 cluster supercomputer at Mississippi State University
Oct 03, 2013 (M2 EQUITYBITES via COMTEX) --
Supercomputer company Cray Inc (Nasdaq:CRAY) announced on Wednesday the award of a contract to provide Mississippi State University with a Cray CS300-LC system, a liquid-cooled version of the Cray CS300 cluster supercomputer.
Financial details of this contract were not disclosed.
This new Cray system, nicknamed 'Shadow', will be located at the University's High Performance Computing Collaboratory (HPC²) and will reportedly serve as the primary high performance computing system for shared research.
According to Cray, its CS300-LC system features an innovative, liquid-cooled design that uses warm water heat exchangers instead of chillers to directly cool the compute processors and memory, allowing for a more efficient removal of system heat.
Also, the Cray CS300-LC, designed for three times the energy savings per-rack over air-cooled systems, uses less energy, features a lower total-cost-of-ownership and gives customers the ability to realise a faster return-on-investment.
