[Beowulf] HPE to acquire Cray

Could there be potential for HP to integrate their own hardware into the mix or basically leave these projects as is since they were awarded before the acquisition by HPE. I would say anything is possible at this stage.

I'm wondering how this will impact the two CORAL-2 contracts that have been awarded already. Intel subcontracted Cray on Argonne's Aurora, and Cray just won ORNL's Frontier about a week ago.
Those are quite short-term projects, with tremendous ambitions and an expected delivery date in 2021, 2 years from now.

Such an acquisition surely can't be done without an impact on such monumental projects, and I'm wondering what route HPE will follow there.
