My other computer is a Cray
Seymour Cray was already a legend in the design of computers in 1972 when he founded Cray Research Inc., but the company was not made public until 1976, the year that launched the first its the Cray-1 vector computer. Thanks to the successes obtained Seymour Cray large enterprise to create Cray Computer Corporation, unfortunately the cost of maintenance of the equipment was not acceptable by the small team of workers and the company declared bankruptcy in 1995. Cray Research, the original company was acquired by Silicon Graphics in 1996. In the year 2000 to be sold again to Tera Computer Company change name to Cray Inc. and Tera step to take this name.
In This complicated part of the history of supercomputers include the figure of Saymour Cray as a fundamental part in the development of distributed computing vector computers.
Cray began working in the field of computer design in 1950 in the design of the ERA 1103 that formed part of the UNIVAC. < /p>
His first success, the Cray-1 was sold for 8.8 million dollars and its development following the Cray-2 was part of the problem to the be only slightly faster in terms of processing capacity than the Cray X-MP developed in parallel within the company by a different team of theSeymour.
Teams of Cray's biggest problem was its high cost of installation and maintenance compared to a mainframe. So we have a Cray was like belonging to the elite of the computer.
Cray is currently one of the most important scalable supercomputers manufacturers. Your new series XC is capable of processing 100 petaflops in each of the connectable equipment each other. < /p >
