Cray Opens Engineering Development Center in Austin

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - September 6, 2007) - Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. (NASDAQ: CRAY) today announced that it has opened a new engineering development center in Austin, Texas.

"Austin has a very strong high-tech community in both hardware and software and provides a deep pool of technology and engineering talent," said Peg Williams, senior vice president of research and development at Cray. "We look forward to becoming part of the community and, at the same time, advancing Cray's leading-edge technological strength and innovation in HPC."

Austin's status as a technology hub, the close proximity to a number of strategic development partners and the University of Texas, with its strong computer science and computer engineering programs, were key factors in the company's decision to open a facility in the area.
