Cray starts pimping BlueArc's storage Titan

Pair go nuclear

Reducing the cost and complexity of web vulnerability management

Storage player BlueArc has entered a partnership with supercomputer vendor Cray to resell BlueArc's Titan 2000 network storage systems to high performance computing customers.

The reseller relationship was announced Wednesday with their first customer showcase up and humming.

The Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) of Aldermaston, England is now running a Cray high performance computer (XT3) with the Titan 2000 for its massive, bombish workloads. The AWE manufactures, maintains, decommissions and disposes of warheads for the United Kingdom. It has played a crucial role in the UK's defense for more than 50 years.

The combined Cray/BlueArc system hit a peak performance of over 40 teraflops with more than 100 terabytes of disk storage in mid-2006.

Senior product marketing manager at Cray Peter Rigsbee said all parties wanted to be sure the system was cranking away and working properly before making a broader reseller announcement.

Armchair analysts can observe the success of the partnership on a superficial level by noting that England is not currently a smoldering crater of nuclear fallout on the Atlantic.

Joint Cray and BlueArc systems are currently available from Cray sales organizations worldwide. ®
