The word “exascale” is one of those terms made up by marketing people to imply something grand and ambitious without actually saying anything very specific.

‘Tis the Season to Be Jolly

For this year’s holiday celebration, Spectra Logic certainly decked the halls, heedless of the wind and weather. The company’s annual holiday party was hosted at its headquarters in Boulder, CO. The entire building was packed with Spectra associates and their families, enjoying hors d’oeuvres, libations, and most of all, each other’s company.

The event featured contributions from every department, who formed into groups loosely based on world regions and each created singular themed environments.
