Hewlett Packard Enterprise CEO Antonio Neri told Business Insider that the $1.3 billion deal to buy legendary supercomputer manufacturer Cray will boost HPE's strategy in the corporate tech market.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more storiesHewlett-Packard Enterprise CEO Antonio Neri says buying Cray will provide the tech giant's cloud strategy more supercomputing muscle.It would also give it an edge in an arena where Cray had been HPE's stiff rival: government contracts.This trend is underscored by the battle for dominance in cloud computing, high-performance computing and AI.Founded in 1972, Cray is a supercomputing pioneer, and was once one of the preeminent names in the mainframe industry.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise, not to be confused with the personal computing brand from which it split in 2015, said today that it acquired Cray, an iconic maker of supercomputers with a rich history in the computing industry.Cray, which was founded in 1972 by “the father of supercomputing,” Seymour Cray, is currently contracted to build two of the world’s fastest supercomputers for two US Department of Energy Labs: the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Argonne National Laboratory.Both systems, one called Frontier being built in partnership with AMD and one called Aurora with Intel, are promised to bring so-called “exascale” performance, with raw performance power of the excess of 1.5 exfaflops, or a quintillion calculations per second.Such exascale supercomputer systems do not yet exist, and it makes sense HPE would want its own stake in upcoming “exascale opportunities,” for which the company says there is a growing market of primarily government contracts, currently estimated at $4 billion over the next half-decade.Currently, IBM is the maker of the world’s two fastest supercomputers, Summit and Sierra.“Only by processing and analyzing this data will we be able to unlock the answers to critical challenges across medicine, climate change, space and more.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has announced that it will acquire supercomputer maker Cray for $35 per share in cash in a deal valued at approximately $1.3bn.HPE's President and CEO, Antonio Neri explained how the acquisition will help drive the next generation of high performance computing (HPC), saying:“Answers to some of society’s most pressing challenges are buried in massive amounts of data.Only by processing and analyzing this data will we be able to unlock the answers to critical challenges across medicine, climate change, space and more.Cray is a global technology leader in supercomputing and shares our deep commitment to innovation.By combining our world-class teams and technology, we will have the opportunity to drive the next generation of high performance computing and play an important part in advancing the way people live and work.”
Hewlett Packard Enterprise is concentrating more supercomputing power in its own hands, announcing Friday a plan to acquire Cray just weeks after the high-performance computing specialist announced it'll make what could become the fastest supercomputer ever.HPE said it's agreed to acquire Seattle-based Cray in an all-cash deal worth about $1.3 billion expected to close by January 2020.The acquisition of the high-performance computing company will expand HPE's portfolio and help lower the cost of Cray's technology such as Slingshot, a high-speed network linking computing nodes into one big supercomputer, the company said."Cray is a global technology leader in supercomputing and shares our deep commitment to innovation," HPE President and CEO Antonio Neri said in a statement.On May 7, the US Department of Energy said it's working with Cray and AMD to build one of the world's most powerful computers, called the Frontier, due to arrive in 2021.It will have a performance of 1.5 exaflops, or 1.5 quintillion calculations per second, which is faster than the 1.0 exaflops supercomputer Cray is working on with Intel called the Aurora.
HPE has announced that it is to acquire veteran supercomputer maker Cray Inc for a cool $1.3bn.Under the terms of the deal, HPE will pay $35 per share value, which represents a premium of 17.4 percent to Cray’s last close of share trading.It is fair to say that HPE has had some issues with past acquisitions.For example it is currently locked in a bitter dispute in a London courtroom with the former management of Autonomy.Its acquisition of Palm was also not widely considered to be a spectacular success either.Yet nevertheless HPE does have some good deals under its belt and it hopes that the Cray deal will assist its supercomputer and high performance computing (HPC) drive in the years ahead in areas such as federal contracts and academia.

Substantial losses weren't much fun, now we'll wait till deal is doneHPE is buying supercomputing veteran Cray Inc for $1.3bn after a multi-year squeeze in the supers sector that culminated in "substantial loss" for the HPC-flinger at the start of 2019.The San Jose firm said it was looking to get in on the academia and government high performance computing markets.In a joint statement, the pair said they looked to spin up supercomputing as a service and flog a wider high performance product set for data-intensive workloads.HPE's chief exec Antonio Neri said: "Answers to some of society's most pressing challenges are buried in massive amounts of data.Only by processing and analyzing this data will we be able to unlock the answers to critical challenges across medicine, climate change, space and more."

HPE announced it was buying Cray for $1.3 billion, giving it access to the company’s high-performance computing portfolio, and perhaps a foothold into quantum computing in the future.The purchase price was $35 a share, a $5.19 premium over yesterday’s close of $29.81 a share.Cray was founded in the 1970s and for a time represented the cutting edge of super computing in the United States, but times have changed, and as the market has shifted, a deal like this makes sense.Ray Wang, founder and principal analyst at Constellation Research, says this is about consolidation at the high end of the market.“This is a smart acquisition for HPE.Cray has been losing money for some time but had a great portfolio of IP and patents that is key for the quantum era,” he told TechCrunch.
(Reuters) – Supercomputer manufacturer Cray said on Friday it would be bought by Hewlett Packard Enterprise in a deal valued at about $1.3 billion (1 billion pounds), net of cash.The $35 per share value represents a premium of 17.4% to Cray’s last close.HPE said it expects the deal to increase its footprint in federal business and academia, and sell supercomputing products to its commercial clients.The deal, expected to close by the first quarter of HPE’s fiscal year 2020, will add to its adjusted operating profit in the first full year after closing.As part of the deal, HPE expects to incur one-time integration costs that will be absorbed within its fiscal year 2020 free cash flow outlook of $1.9 billion to $2.1 billion that remains unchanged.Seattle-headquartered Cray has U.S.-based manufacturing operations and about 1,300 employees worldwide.
The company will quadruple its investments in its IoT business and is developing an all-in-one enterprise IoT solution bundle that combines hardware, software, and services.The IoT investment is "the single largest investment the company is going to make this year," according to Wilfredo Sotolongo, VP and chief customer officer for Lenovo's Data Center Group, per CRN.Here's what it means: Lenovo sees IoT as an opportunity to grow beyond its core personal computer (PC) business, and it can leverage its existing enterprise relationships to do so.Currently, Lenovo is a giant in the stagnating PC market.The company was one of the top PC vendors by shipments in 2018, neck and neck with HP.In an effort to diversify, Lenovo is making significant IoT investments to win over enterprise IoT clients, especially from among its existing customer relationships and contracts.

In addition to a 15-inch primary display, the machine comes with a petite 6-inch 1080p touchscreen panel located just slightly above the keyboard.I’m not much of a PC gamer (although I am partial to the occasional bit of Civilization), but I am a software developer by training, and something like the HP Omen X 2S is extremely attractive to me.This would allow me to quickly glance at code samples and method explanations, all without having to break my concentration by switching tabs.Similarly, tech workers with grueling travel schedules could find it helps them be productive, as they churn out lines of code from the desk of a dismal airport hotel.Another thing that makes the HP Omen X 2S attractive to code-monkeys is the fact that it’s undeniably powerful.You’d expect that from any gaming machine worth its salt.

Bendy screens are a hot topic right now, given Samsung’s folding phone, and cool prototypes like Lenovo’s flexible screen laptop, but HP’s Omen X 2S laptop is taking a different approach to packing more display into a device.Instead of one big screen that doubles as a touchpad and keyboard, the Omen X 2S will put a phone size display directly above the keyboard.Looking at it you might be reminded of Razer’s prototype from CES 2018 that let the Razer Phone double as a touchpad and second display in a laptop chassis.Both of those had the display doing double duty as the touchpad.The Omen X 2S gives you a dedicated touchpad in the same area where you typically find a number pad on a 15-inch laptop.The little 6-inch 1080p display is intended to work sort of like the second screen on a Nintendo DS.
