Energy-Efficient Computing -
NERSC’s new “Edison” Cray® XCTM Supercomputer

Along with the need for scalable and sustained performance comes the need for energy efficient supercomputing.

As global energy costs climb, Cray has taken its long-standing expertise in optimizing power and cooling and focused it on developing overall system energy efficiency. The resulting XC supercomputer series integrates into modern datacenters and achieves high levels of efficiency while minimizing system and infrastructure costs.

Effective use of energy is fundamental to the design of the processing nodes, the power train, and the cooling system. Fine-grain power consumption monitoring provides system operators and funding agencies with detailed information on energy usage. In this video we will use the NERSC Edison Cray® XC™ supercomputer to demonstrate the energy efficiency advancements of the Cray XC series.
