What makes the Cray CS Series different?
All CS components have been carefully selected for highest performance, optimized, and integrated to create a powerful computing environment. Flexible node configurations featuring the latest processor and interconnect technologies mean you can tailor a cluster system to your specific needs—from an all-purpose HPC cluster to an accelerated system optimized to tackle AI training and inference workloads.
Beyond technology, Cray CS cluster users benefit from the depth of Cray’s 40+ years of supercomputing experience. From design and manufacturing to site engineering, system installation, optimization, and ongoing management and support, CS series cluster supercomputers and software solutions are delivered with the same exacting standards and scalability as Cray’s legendary XC series supercomputing systems.
