The Cray XMT System is designed specifically to run challenging big data graph analytics workloads that bring traditional systems to their knees. Many problems in the semantic space are particularly well suited for this system and the Cray XMT holds the promise of advancing the application of semantic technologies to big data analysis. This talk will describe the motivation, architecture and potential application areas for this unique machine.
