Analytics at the speed of supercomputing

Cray's Urika®-XC software solution brings you advanced analytics, AI and graph tools, engineered for Cray XC series supercomputers.

Do It All

Gain new insights and solve the toughest problems across all your data on one machine — without additional hardware, and without moving data from machine to machine. Cray Urika-XC allows you to run advanced analytics and simulation workloads simultaneously on performance computers, including the Cray XC series systems, using familiar system tools and schedulers.Cray Urika-XC Analytics Software With supercomputer speed and efficiency you can run more types of analytics faster, yielding unprecedented breadth of results and maximizing your opportunity for transformative discoveries.

Get Modern

Use modern tools and languages to power richer insights and reduce the need for scarce talent. Cray Urika-XC advanced analytics is a set of powerful big data analytics and AI tools (Apache® Spark™, BigDL, R, Scala and Java), Open Data Science tools (Anaconda, Python, and Distributed Dask), and Cray’s powerful Cray Graph Engine for large-scale graph pattern recognition and discovery applications — all optimized to run on Cray XC series supercomputer systems.

Improve TCO

With Urika-XC advanced analytics, you can make the most of your investment in Cray XC supercomputers and reduce the need to maintain separate systems. Meet increased demand for advanced analytics without capital investment or retraining.

Discovery Unleashed

Cray Urika-XC analytics helps Cray XC users expand into high-performance data analytics, graph processing and artificial intelligence for data science and research.

Datacenter ManagerSupercomputer center managers need to keep up with the rapid expansion of analytics and AI and provide an infrastructure that “does it all.”

  • With the ability to run analytics, graph and AI simultaneously on the same system, supercomputer lab managers can make the most of their investments in Cray XC supercomputers and reduce the need to maintain separate systems.
  • You'll get more services for more users, and a better return on your investment.

Data scientists gain new insights and solve the toughest problems, crossing analytics and research domains, with data on one machine — without additional hardware and without moving data from machine to machine.

  • With supercomputer speed and efficiency you can run more types of analytics faster, yielding unprecedented breadth of results and maximizing your opportunity for transformative discoveries.

Urika-XC Technology

Bringing analytics, AI and graph to Cray XC series supercomputers

The Urika®-XC software suite is a set of powerful big data analytics and AI applications and tools optimized to run on the Cray XC line of supercomputing systems. They’ve been reengineered to take advantage of the unique scalable architecture of the Cray XC series, including Cray’s Aries™ network interconnect. Urika-XC software tools are integrated with the high-performance Cray Linux® Environment and managed through existing workload managers. With the Urika-XC package, analytics and AI applications benefit from the supercomputer power and scale of Cray XC systems.

Unmatched Performance and Scale for Graph Applications

Based on the graph technology in our Urika®-GX agile analytics platform, Urika-XC graph technology breaks new ground in scaling and performance for classic graph-based pattern matching and discovery applications. Our implementation of graph is an RDF triplestore database capable of supporting massive graph instances, taking advantage of the performance and scale found in the Cray XC series, and implementing W3C’s SPARQL query language for RDF, along with unique-to-Cray built-in graph functions that extend SPARQL.

Open-Source Analytics at Supercomputer Scale

Urika-XC analytics is designed with the latest in open source technologies for big data analytics and AI. Integrated with standard HPC workload managers, the Urika-XC software suite brings the power of Apache® Spark™ clusters and distributed Dask clusters to our XC series.

  • Dynamically provisions Apache Spark clusters for in-memory analytics with support for MLlib, GraphX and SparkSQL
  • Includes modern languages and development tools with support for R, Python, Scala and Java, sbt and Maven
  • Leverages the emerging Python-based Open Data Science ecosystem with support for Anaconda and Python
