We reached the first place with our Cray Y-MP EL on the VCFe 19.0

We are very happy that our little Cray got so much attention. First place together with the arcade machines of “For Amusement Only” was the result of all the work.

I would like to thank our team and the organisers of the LRZ and VCFe.

Installation of UNICOS successful!

We had some problems to reactivate our Y-MP EL after the long time in stock. Thanks to our spare parts for the Cray, we were able to get the system up and running.

Installation complete.

We are very happy that the Cray Y-MP EL is running and we can exhibit the machine at the VCFe.

First action, moved the floor.

cray-cyber.org restarts the computing centre in Grasbrunn near Munich.
First we need an adequate machine room, of course with professional raised floor. Today we moved and installed the floortiles.

Test, is it stable? 🙂

Next, the first machines will move in.
