Cray strengthens presence in China
Cray has formed a new wholly-owned subsidiary in China aimed at strengthening the company’s presence in the country’s growing high-performance computing (HPC) marketplace. Located in Beijing’s Haidian district, Cray Computing Equipment (Beijing) will focus on selling Cray supercomputing systems and storage, training end-users and administrators, and providing direct customer service.
‘Cray believes the company needs to expand its supercomputing capability and expertise in the rapidly growing HPC field in China, and thus provide a strong, local presence to China’s scientific community,’ said Andrew Wyatt, vice president of Cray Asia Pacific. ‘The country’s HPC market is of rising importance and establishing a new subsidiary in Beijing reconfirms our dedication to providing world-class supercomputing technologies to meet the growing needs of China’s HPC users.’
This move is the latest in a series of expansions made by the company. In April 2009, Cray formed a new subsidiary in New Delhi, India, and currently has offices, subsidiaries and research and development facilities in the United States, Canada, Brazil, Japan, Australia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea and in several countries throughout Europe. Cray’s corporate headquarters are located in Seattle, Washington.
