Mairs & Power Comments on Cray - Feb 04, 2016

Cray (CRAY) was a significant outperformer for the Fund in the fourth quarter. For over a year, management has been indicating that IBM’s re-positioning within the high performance computing space would create opportunities for Cray to take share. Given significant upside surprises to total revenue the last couple quarters, it appears this scenario is starting to play out. In addition, after a few fits and starts, it appears Cray is gaining traction in the rapidly evolving big data space with a couple of new high performance computer offerings. A strong competitive position, coupled with solid growth prospects and a very reasonable valuation support our large holding in Cray.

Mairs & Power Comments on Cray - Dec 01, 2015

Cray (NASDAQ:CRAY) continues to gain significant share in the high performance computing space against the market leader, IBM, as that company continues to reposition itself away from the space. At the same time, Cray is starting to gain traction with commercial sales, in addition to its core government and academic customer base. Cardiovascular Systems has suffered setbacks in significantly growing and cross-training its existing salesforce, which hurt near term performance. Nevertheless, we believe its solution to peripheral arterial disease which can save a patient’s extremities from potential amputation makes a lot of sense and has a lot of room to grow. Likewise recent FDA approval of the company’s solution to dealing with calcified arteries near the heart before angioplasty or stenting also appears to serve an unmet need. Revenue growth has been lumpy as the company attempts to build out these two new markets, but over the long term we expect they will be successful

The independent research firm used a 26-point criteria evaluation system that covered current offering, strategy, and market presence in the evaluation of seven leading vendors in the report.  Authored by Forrester Research analysts Mike Gualtieri and Noel Yuhanna, the Wave report states: "Cray brings its high-performance computing experience to Hadoop. When it comes to supercomputers, Cray is a brand that has been around for more than 40 years, and this tradition and experience is now making its way into big data architectures. Cray offers strong capabilities for interconnected, memory-centric architectures, and its optimized performance lets it handle various workloads... Cray includes fast interconnects and an on-node dense memory hierarchy architecture that positions its analytics platform well for supporting new and emerging in-memory workloads, such as graph analytics, machine learning, and IoT. Cray's strong high-performance computing history, good technical support, and continued focus and commitment to analytics and big data will appeal to a larger audience in the coming years." The Wave report also states: "General-purpose hardware infrastructure requires considerable time and effort to install, configure, tune, upgrade, and monitor Hadoop platforms," according to the authors of the report. "Hadoop-optimized systems help overcome these issues by optimizing the infrastructure with automation, balanced system resources, and integrated testing... This market is growing because enterprise architecture pros see Hadoop-optimized systems as a strategic platform to support their big data initiatives. When selecting a system, enterprises should look at modularity, automation, performance, and overall price/performance attributes." "We are excited by this ranking of strong performer in The Forrester Wave™: Big Data Hadoop Optimized Systems report," said Ryan Waite, Cray's senior vice president of products. "We believe this recognition of the Urika system reinforces our leadership position in providing customers with a powerful tool for solving the most advanced analytics challenges. And on the heels of unveiling our new agile analytics platform, the Cray Urika-GX system, our offering proves to be even stronger. By fusing supercomputing technologies with an open, enterprise-ready software framework for big data analytics, our Urika-GX system gives customers unprecedented versatility for running multiple analytics workloads concurrently on a single platform that leverages the speed of a Cray supercomputer." Upcoming Cray Webinar: Why Big Data Analytics Needs to Be Agile Now

Kaon's Digital Interactive Marketing Solutions Help Leading IT/Data Center Companies Drive Revenue in the $200 Billion Global Market

New Kaon Customers Cray, Quantum and Rackspace Along With Dozens More, Are Using the Patented Kaon v-Rack(R) (Virtual Rack) Solution to Increase Sales and Improve Effectiveness at Trade Shows, Events and in EBCs

MAYNARD, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 6, 2016) - Kaon Interactive, the leading provider of interactive 3D customer engagement applications, today added Cray (NASDAQ: CRAY), Quantum, and Rackspace® to a large and growing list of network and IT solution and equipment providers using Kaon's sales and marketing applications. Kaon's technology is transformative to this industry because it allows companies (and their channel partners) to be more effective in clearly communicating a product's differentiated benefits to prospects, through engaging interactions. The solution helps drive sales and reduce marketing expenses. The Kaon v-Rack® digitally demonstrates entire families of rack-mounted switches, routers, servers, and storage products like never before, visually showing how an unlimited number of products can integrate and work together. Customers can engage with virtual 3D Product Models (which look and behave like the actual products) on Kaon v-OSK MT™ interactive touch screen appliances mounted within an ACTUAL rack, creating a user experience relevant to a real-world environment. In a recent TSNN article, A. J. Ramsey, Global IBM Partner Marketing Manager for Cisco, stated, "Sales engineers like using the Kaon v-Rack because it is easier to use when conducting technical discussions. They can drill down to line diagrams, show switches, and pull out and spin around components. Details they cannot showcase on the physical box." With Statista and Infonetics projecting strong growth in telecommunication network equipment markets globally, companies must find ways to crisply communicate differentiation and value within this competitive marketplace. The virtual rack is more intuitive, significantly saves on hardware shipping costs for events, and allows companies to present their corporate message in a consistent way that people can quickly understand. That's why 18 of the top 20 IT technology companies are using the Kaon v-Rack to engage customers in a way that's not possible, even with the physical equipment present. Because Kaon's interactive sales and marketing applications are deployed on the Kaon Application Delivery Network (ADN), the exact same engaging customer experiences are also immediately available on smartphones, tablets, laptops and websites, powering over 4,000 face-to-face sales and marketing meetings every week, in more than 50 countries, and 14 languages. About Kaon Interactive

Founded in 1996, Kaon Interactive provides 3D interactive customer engagement applications that help marketers and sales people consistently demonstrate and differentiate complex products to prospects anywhere at any time. By combining touch-based, interactive capabilities with real-time 3D photo-realism, Kaon's interactive Product tours transform product marketing content into visual storytelling experiences across a wide variety of platforms including touch screen appliances, iPads and mobile devices, laptops & desktops and websites. More than 2,000 Kaon Interactive applications are deployed worldwide at tradeshows, sales demonstrations, product launches, executive briefing centers, and on customer & partner websites.
