Cray builds innovative solutions enabling earth system scientists to meet existing and future simulation and analytics challenges.  Cray provides multiple platforms, expertise, choice and performance; from scale-out clusters to scale-up supercomputers, along with storage and data management solutions that provide performance, reliability and usability. Cray is proud to be a partner with a number of leadership centers worldwide that are at the forefront of delivering production supercomputing today and laying the groundwork for future extreme facilities in the years to come. Cray XC30 systems and Cray Sonexion storage have been recently selected by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) and Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD).  These petascale facilities will help improve forecasting and research capabilities through increased resolution and model enhancements. This presentation will cover recent updates from Cray, activities in the earth system modeling community and perspectives on high performance computing over the next few years.
