Posted by on Jan 26, 2016 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Our client Cray just signed a $36 million contract with the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), to deliver new XC40 and XC40-AC supercomputers later this year.


ECMWF specializes in global numerical weather prediction for the medium range (up to two weeks ahead), and also produces extended-range forecasts for up to a year ahead, with varying degrees of detail. The center uses advanced computer modeling techniques to analyze observations and predict future weather. Forecasts are produced and sent out twice daily to Member State national meteorological services for their use. Source: Scientific Computing.
