CrayCray has been awarded a $36 million contract to upgrade the high-performance computers and storage system at the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts.

The company will update the XC supercomputers to Cray XC40 systems and provide additional Sonexion 2000 Lustre storage and a 32-node system to the weather research center, Cray said Monday.

The Intel processor-based systems are scheduled for delivery in 2016.

Catalin Morosanu, Cray’s vice president of sales for Europe, Middle East and Africa region, said the upgrade aims to provide “computational tools for advancing global numerical weather prediction” to ECMWF.

Cray’s XC40 supercomputer features the Aries system interconnect, a Dragonfly network topology, DataWarp applications input and output accelerator technology, and Cray Linux environment.
