  Cray Inc. - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cray left to form his own company, Cray Computer Corporation, which went bankrupt in 1995, while Cray Research was bought by SGI the next year.
Cray is also completing the Red Storm system being built for Sandia National Laboratories having CPUs clustered in 96-processor cabinets, a theoretical maximum of 300 cabinets in a machine, and a design speed of 41.5 Tflops.
Further contributing to Cray’s problems was the loss of both the chief financial officer and financial reporting manager in the fourth quarter of 2004, and the head of information technology in the first quarter of 2005.

 Seymour Cray - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cray was born in 1925 in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.
Cray wanted to follow immediately, but William Norris refused as Cray was in the midst of completing a project for the US Navy, with whom Norris was interested in maintaining a good relationship.
Cray always demanded an absolutely quiet work enviornment with a minimum of management overhead, but as the company grew he found himself constantly interrupted by middle-managers who (according to Cray) did little but gawk and use him as a sales tool by introducing him to prospective customers.

 The Cray Research Inc. Cray J90-series, T90 series.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
The Cray T90 series is built in ECL logic and has therefore a much lower clock cycle (2.2 ns) and correspondingly faster SRAM memory.
The Cray T90 machines are at this moment the only ones with a memory bandwidth as seems optimal for vector processors: two operands can be loaded and one result can be stored in one cycle for each pipe set.
Another property that is unique for the Cray T90 systems is that they do not have a separate scalar processor but that scalar and vector code have to share the same functional units.

 Cray Supercomputer FAQ
Known collectively as the "Cray effect", they are the combination of algorithm scaling problems, cyclic accumulation of errors and parallelism interdependencies that seem to show up most times you take an apparently well behaved small program and run it longer harder and further than possible on a conventional system.
Cray machines could not support "alloca", so minor magic had to be applied to programs using "alloca." In the very early days, many C programs suffered from the "nUxi" problem, but that was hardly unique to Cray machines.
On the company move to the "new" Cray Research Park from the 1440 Northland Drive facility, the first ducky day at the new location was celebrated by putting the torch to the wooden portion of the reassembled sculpture on the island in the middle of Cray Lake.

When Silicon Graphics and Cray Research closed on the merger of the two companies in 1996, we noted how the combined company is uniquely well-equipped to deliver a "desktops to teraflops" family of products.
Working together, Cray Research and Silicon Graphics intend to meld complementary capabilities from UNICOS and IRIX to create a "best of both worlds" environment that will protect customers' software investments, mitigate migration issues, ensure availability of a broad range of applications, and provide an easy to-use programming model.
Similarly, CRAY J90 Series customers will be able to take advantage of planned upgrades to the series or migrate to SN1 or SN2 implementations of the unified architecture over the next several years.

 Tribute to Seymour Cray
When he started Cray Research in 1972, he shelved the 8600 design primarily because at that time he felt that the software issues were too great for the industry to handle and concluded that greater performance could be achieved in a uniprocessor by implementing vector capabilities.
Once when told that Apple Computer bought a CRAY to simulate their next Apple computer design, Seymour remarked, "Funny, I am using an Apple to simulate the CRAY-3." His selection of people for his projects also reflected fundamentals.
He was impressed with the strides that the microprocessor manufacturers had made, and was convinced that within another iteration or two, the off-the-shelf microprocessor would provide performance competitive with custom processors.
