Cray Inc. Announces $3.5 Million Order for Red Storm Product

SEATTLE --(Business Wire)-- July 29, 2004 -- Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. (Nasdaq:CRAY) today announced that it has received another advance order for the company's upcoming product based on the Sandia "Red Storm" supercomputer. The order is valued at approximately $3.5 million. No further details were disclosed.

"Red Storm" is a 40-TeraOps (40 trillion calculations per second) supercomputer Cray is scheduled to deliver this year to Sandia National Laboratories under a $93 million Department of Energy contract.

Cray announced plans to develop the Red Storm-based product in October 2003. Earlier this year, Cray announced advance orders for the product from the Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and an unnamed Canadian customer.

"The Red Storm-based product targets the need for highly scalable microprocessor-based supercomputers with extremely high bandwidth. It is designed to be more efficient and cost-effective for challenging problems and workloads than the clustered SMP systems available in the marketplace today," according to Peter Ungaro, Cray's vice president of worldwide marketing and sales. "Red Storm takes the highly successful MPP systems of the past and updates it with the latest in advanced technology; customers are showing a lot of excitement about Cray bringing this architecture back to the forefront of supercomputing."

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
