Cray, a leading maker of supercomputers, this week created a new division within the company focused exclusively on delivering solutions for the rapidly-growing, multi-billion dollar "Big Data" market. This division, called YarcData, will be led by Arvind Parthasarathi, who has been appointed to the new position of senior vice president and general manager of YarcData.

"Cray is best known for building supercomputers that can run massive scientific and engineering simulations, and from that work we have developed unique technologies and amassed significant experience working with some of the largest data-intensive environments in the world. This makes our entry into the Big Data market a natural evolution," said Peter Ungaro, president and chief executive officer of Cray.

YarcData will provide differentiated, business-focused and cost-effective Big Data solutions for enterprises worldwide. The new division will consist of Cray employees spanning several functions of the company, including research and development, marketing, sales, services and support. By creating a division within the company that is dedicated to the needs of enterprise customers, YarcData signifies Cray's commitment to serving the Big Data analytics market.

"YarcData is the nexus of the world's most advanced technologies from Cray being applied to solve the world's most challenging Big Data problems. The Big Data market is in its infancy and YarcData solutions will fill an important and unmet need in enterprise Big Data processing. This is a unique opportunity to deliver Cray's high performance technology to meet 21st century Big Data challenges, and I look forward to building a successful future for YarcData, Cray and our customers worldwide," said Arvind Parthasarathi.
