SemTech Spotlight: Cray Inc.

Steve Scott, CTO of Cray will be on hand at next week’s Semantic Technology Conference to discuss Cray’s Extreme Multithreaded Technology (XMT) System. According to the article, “The Cray XMT System is designed specifically to run challenging big data graph analytics workloads that bring traditional systems to their knees. Many problems in the semantic space are particularly well suited for this system and the Cray XMT holds the promise of advancing the application of semantic technologies to big data analysis. This talk will describe the motivation, architecture and potential application areas for this unique machine.”

“For more than three decades,” according to the company website, “Cray experts have been helping scientists and engineers solve challenging, complex computational problems. In industry, Cray high-performance computers increase productivity, reduce risk and decrease time to market for companies across a range of applications in the automotive, aerospace, life sciences, and petroleum sectors. Cray’s unmatched performance, reliability and usability contribute to scientific endeavors with tremendous economic and social consequences, such as weather forecasting, and climate prediction.”
