NICS has taken delivery of a new Cray XT5. The new machine, which replaces the Cray XT4, will be called by the same name, 'Kraken'. The new Kraken XT5 will be available starting Monday February 2. Over the next two months, until March 30, both machines will be available to facilitate the transition from the XT4 to the XT5.

Kraken’s ability to simulate phenomena beyond the bounds of observation promises to significantly improve our understanding in multiple scientific arenas. For example, despite our knowledge of the human body, some of the most elementary biological processes remain a mystery, at least for now.
