It’s done, our Cray is in the LRZ. From tomorrow until Sunday you can visit the Cray and if we have enough power, the machine will also be operable from the terminal.
The 19th annual “Vintage Computer Festival Europa” will take place on April 28th and 29th 2018. We exhibit our Cray! Come and see the machine live at the Leibnitz Rechenzentrum in Garching, just a bit North of Munich.
