ClusterVision in strategic alliance with Cray

Share this on social media:

ClusterVision has established a strategic alliance with Cray to offer the latter's CX1 deskside supercomputer throughout Europe. ClusterVision will help customers choose the various configuration options to best fit their needs, delivering the cluster as well as providing training and support over the Cray CX1 system's life.

The Cray CX1 system is a high-performance deskside supercomputer with the ease-of-use and seamless integration of a workstation. ClusterVision will deliver the Cray CX1 system with ClusterVisionOS, a cluster management environment based on Linux. Both the OS and the system are aimed at users that want minimal system administration overhead combined with maximum productivity. The Cray CX1 product will also be available from ClusterVision with Microsoft Windows HPC Server 2008 and dual-boot options.

'Cray is excited to be working with ClusterVision in Europe as we share a common vision of enabling a broader community to take advantage of the power of high performance computing,' said Ian Miller, senior vice president of the productivity solutions group and marketing at Cray. 'The Cray CX1 system with ClusterVisionOS provides Linux users with an easy to install, use and administer environment that allows customers to focus on the work they need to do and not on the computer system they use to do it.'

'ClusterVision is pleased to be working with Cray to deliver this exciting new product,' said Dr Matthijs van Leeuwen, commercial director of ClusterVision. 'Here is a solution that is versatile, easy to use, yet very powerful. It will appeal to a large group of customers that want maximum compute power in a small and easy-to-use package, at a good price.'
